The iPod touch offers a powerful A5 processor. The iPod touch also features the stunning Retina display with a Multi-Touch interface found on the iPhone 5.

The iPod The touch has front and rear cameras for taking photos and videos, as well as having live video chats over Wi-Fi with FaceTime.

The touch also connects to the App Store and iTunes, offers multitasking, allows you to connect to the Internet, check email, and much more.

Please note that some models may come with iOS 6. You will be able to upgrade to iOS 7 for free via the Software Update option in Settings.

Design

Anodized Aluminum
This iPod touch features an anodized aluminum unibody design, similar to the Apple's MacBook line. It's only 0.24" (6.1mm) thin and weighs just 3.1 ounces (88 grams). Aside from the ultraportable design, the anodized aluminum unibody features a supersmooth finish highlighted by its polished beveled edges
A Wide Variety of Colors
This iPod touch now comes in a variety of colors. You can choose from black, white, pink, yellow and blue. However, don't be fooled. The colors are not just painted on the surface, but they've been anodized right into the aluminum body. What you get is a saturated color that still lets the luster of the metal shine through
4" Retina Display
The screen of this iPod touch didn't get any wider, just taller. This means you can still operate the iPod touch with just one hand and your thumb gets extra room to navigate through iOS. The display also got more advanced, with finger-friendly, gestured-enabled Multi-Touch technology built right into the glass instead of beneath it. The 4" Retina display has an in-plane switching (IPS) panel that is capable of producing a native resolution of 1136 x 640 at 326 pixels per inch (ppi), an 800:1 contrast ratio, and a 500cd/m² max brightness. The screen also has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
iPod touch Loop
The iPod touch loop is a colorful way to keep your iPod touch securely attached to your wrist. You can use it to shoot from a hard-to-reach camera angle, flip your iPod touch up for a quick iMessage or just carry it around pocketless. The loop also keeps your iPod touch safe from a slip, fumble or drop because it's securely connected to your wrist
Apple EarPods
While the older Apple earbuds have gotten a lot of criticism for not fitting well and having poor sound quality, Apple has reinvented them into the Apple EarPods. The Apple EarPods were designed to fit the ear, not the other way around. It has a front vent, a rear vent, a bass vent and a primary acoustic outlet to provide deeper bass and better audio all around while staying stable in your ears
Eco-Friendly
Good design doesn't only mean making a stylish product, but also taking into account the environmental impact. That's why the iPod touch from Apple is made from highly recyclable materials, such as aluminum. Also, every iPod touch is free of toxic materials, such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC)

Music

Cover Flow
Turn the iPod touch into landscape mode to reveal Cover Flow. In Cover Flow, you can glide through your music by album art with the flick of your finger. The taller 4" Retina display also gives you more space to maneuver
Genius Playlists and Mixes
Genius finds complementary songs of your favorite songs and puts them in a Genius playlist for your convenience. You can also let Genius automatically search your library to find songs that go great together and make mixes for you
iTunes and iCloud
Buy and download new music on your iPod touch over Wi-Fi with the iTunes app. If you have your iPod touch linked to your iCloud account, it will automatically push your just purchased songs to all your other Apple devices, such as your iPad, iPhone, Mac and even PC computers
Bluetooth and Airplay
Pair your iPod touch to Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as a pair of headphones. You can also stream music from your iPod touch to AirPlay-enabled speakers over Wi-Fi to your home entertainment system via Apple TV or any speaker connected to an AirPort Express

Camera

Rear iSight Camera
This iPod touch has a rear iSight camera, which has tap to focus, an LED flash and face detection. With the 5-megapixel iSight camera, you'll be taking pictures with seven times the amount of pixels of the previous iPod touch as well as recording video in 1080p, complete with video stabilization
Front FaceTime HD Camera
This iPod touch also has a front 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera, capable of recording video in 720p. You can also access FaceTime to chat with friends and family in crystal clear HD quality, using the front FaceTime HD camera
Panorama
With the Panorama function, you'll be able to point, shoot and move the camera across the scene for up to 240 degrees. The gyroscope, A5 chip and sophisticated software work together to create a single seamless shot
In-App Editing
Crop, rotate, enhance and remove red-eye directly from your iPod touch. You can also edit video as well. Just drag to select start and end points on the filmstrip. For more photo and video editing options, iPhoto and iMovie are available in the Apple App Store (sold separately)
Shared Photo Stream
With Shared Photo Streams in iCloud, you can share your favorite photos with friends and family at a press of a button. You can also post to Facebook or attach it to a tweet right from the Camera app

        Comments about Apple 32GB iPod touch (Space Gray) (5th Generation):

        Ordered an iPod from B&H and the service was efficient and very straightforward. Received my order within a couple of days and the shipping was free. Also, the price of the product was very competitive-best price I could find for a new iPod. Of course, it is a great product! Recommended.

                Works perfect with my Sony DSC-QX10 Lens-Style camera. The iPod touch loop (wrist strap) comes in handy to remove the fear of dropping it while taking picutes. My only 2 complainsts would be that it would've been nice if the included EarPods were the ones with the remote+mic, and the battery life isn't that great. Then again, I'm used to getting over the original estimate on both my iPad mini and Mac.

                      Great product. The 5th generation iTouches are very light, robust, and work well. Connected to my wifi immediately, works great!

                                    I don't have a smartphone, so I use this for everything except obviously phone calls. I have my calendar, contacts, etc. on it. I use it for e-mail, games, shopping, Facetime, and personal organization. The display, performance, and capabilities are much improved from the one I have from 4 years ago. If you have an older model, it is definitely worth the upgrade.

                                    My son loved the new iPod touch. It replaced one that he's had for a few years and he couldn't be happier.
