iPod Touch 4G Release Date and Specs: Apple Media Event

We reported yesterday that the special Apple media event was going to be held on September 7th, but many of us were misled – that date has moved forward to September 1st. We assume that Steve Jobs will announce many things, but the most likely has to be the iPod Touch 4G.

We can also expect something on Apple TV (iTV) and hopefully an update to the MacBook Air, but it is the Touch that we are most interested in. September is always the month when Apple refreshes its iPod lineup, so is a good indication that this will happen on Wednesday.

As with all upcoming Apple device it is all speculation, and there have certainly been a few rumors as to what specs the new 2010 iPod Touch will offer. The most talked about has to be the addition of a main 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing camera for use with FaceTime.

We do not expect Apple to increase storage capacity, they did not do that on the iPhone 4 either, and there has to be a reason for this. Many believe that Apple is close to introducing their cloud-based iTunes – meaning that you will no longer have to store all the music on your device yourself.

This is all speculation; so make certain that you come back on September 1st, where we hope to have all the answers.

What are your expectations for the iPod Touch 4G?

          I know.. I JUST got my 3G 2 months ago for my birthday! I was told to wait for the 4G or go ahead and get the 3G..I went and got one right away, but if I had known the 4G has two cameras, I would've waited. I'm probally going to sell my 3G on eBay.

            if u bought ut at target or walmart or just a retail store just tell them that there is a problem with the ipod and u want ur money back, nd they will give u the money in as a gift card and u can just buy the new ipod with that, well i did this today nd it worked, but it has to be befor the 90 day warranty

    • Jack

  • dsadfewa

    the real question is will it be Jailbroken ?

    • jailbraker

      Devices dont come jailbroken you have to jailbreak them yourself and it voids your warranty. Its completley worth it though.

      • xxxx

        u can always unjailbreak it

      • zakkkk

        jailbreaks are reversable, just plug in and sync with itunes, and set up as a new ipod, apple wont know you ever jailbroke it, simple as that.

  • heyaaa

    when is it out???

  • oudinmelanie09

    I just got the new iPod Touch 4G and it is really a video playerwith thinner design including two cameras for FaceTime and HD video recording, Retina display from iPhone 4, Apple A4 chip.

    But there still a limitation of its playable video formats. iPod Touch 4G can additionally play video with formats of MPEG-4 (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC) and QuickTime video formats. This is a headache issue because various video downloaded from web or Blu-ray/DVD video can not be played in this iPod Touch 4G. Via google, I found a program named Aunsoft iMedia Converter for Mac is an ideal assistant for iPod Touch 4G. This software can efficiently transcode almost all formats of video to iPod Touch 4G video formats.

    Hope useful.
