The 64GB iPod touch (Black & Slate) (5th Generation) from Apple has now reached its 5th generation, offering an incredible iPod touch as a music player, video camera, pocket computer and portable gaming device all in a single sleek anodized aluminum finish with exceptional battery life. 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

            Comments about Apple 64GB iPod touch (Black & Slate) (5th Generation):

            Since I don't own or need a smart phone, the 5th generation iPod Touch fills my need for a mobile device beautifully. The sleek design fits better in the hand than the older models. Retina screen is beautiful. Camera quality is ok to good, but I carry a better pocket digital camera with me anyway. Nice to have the ability to take a quick photo and email it though! The one thing that would make this device perfect is the addition of a 3G network - but that would make it heavier and much more expensive, and the iPad fills that niche anyway. Compared with the iPhone the charge time is almost nothing and battery life is excellent to very good. My pre-paid GoPhone account coupled with the iPod Touch is a very economical and workable option for me.

                    I bought this for my wife for christmas. She absolutely loves it. This is replacing her old ipod classic... which still works, but it's about time for an upgrade. So far, no problems at all and practically everyday I hear about something new it can do.

                        Had mine now for almost 2 weeks and have to say it is Much, Much Better than the 4th Gen. The Clarity of the screen is most noticeable. Even SIRI can understand My Central VA Blue Ridge Mountain inbreeded accent. Now if only the aftermarket folks would produce some protective covers I would be Happy

                        I've had an iPod touch (3rd Gen) for a few years, but I wanted a new version with the camera, etc. After a few days, I thought: Really...I spent this much for this? Well, I've changed my mind. I LOVE the Retina display. Makes my videos look awesome! My music sounds better; because of the new processor? Google app works great with voice requests. Siri does OK. Haven't used Maps much. The whole thing responds faster because of the new processor. The camera is handy, but it won't replace my Canon digicam. Grainy pics. Haven't tried FaceTime. I miss the YouTube app I had. Google's isn't as good...yet.
