What is the difference between iPod Touch 3G vs iPod Touch 4G?
Here is a comparison table I created, looking at and comparing the difference between the Apple iPod Touch 3G vs the iPod Touch 4G:
|iPod Touch 3G||iPod Touch 4G|
|Battery||30 hours audio and 6 hours video||40 hours audio and 7 hours video|
|CPU||833MHz ARM A8||Apple A4 Chip|
|Display||320×480, 3.5” LCD||960x640px, LED backlit|
|Connectivity||Wi-Fi b/g, USB 2.0, Bluetooth||Wi-Fi b/g/n, USB 2.0, Bluetooth|
|Dimensions and Weight||110 x 61 x 8.4mm, 115g||110 x 59 x 7.2mm, 101g|
|Cameras||None||Front and Rear Facing Camera|
|Operating system||iOS 4||iOS 4.1|
As you can see there are vast differences between the iPod Touch 3G vs the iPod Touch 4G.
Just to elaborate on a few points, the new “n” term added to the Wi-Fi wireless connectivity means you will have a much more (noticeable) difference when using wireless internet, especially with a home network. The speed and reception will be an improvement over your experience with the iPod Touch 3G.
Furthermore, the operating system was upgraded to iOS 4.1 in the new iPod Touch 4G, which is great in itself but come November 2010, Apple will release the next upgrade which is called the iOS 4.2. This will further allow for multitasking (switching between apps without having to close them!), folders (collect your favourite apps together in a folder), printing, Airplay and more! All in the iPod Touch 4G.
Note: This iOS 4.2 upgrade will also be available for the iPad, iPhone 4 and other Apple products.
