The iPod Touch is now in its third generation and we're happy to say that Apple's latest boasts numerous improvements over its predecessor.

For starters the new Touch uses version 3.1 of Apple's iPhone OS and sports the same microprocessor, graphics engine and memory as the 3GS iPhone. Thanks to this combination of hardware and software the Touch proved very responsive in day-to-day use. Launching apps, switching from one content type to another and even browsing the web proved quick and trouble-free.

The supplied earphones boast an integrated microphone and both work well in terms of playback and audio capture. Thankfully, if you already own an expensive set of cans, you can hook them up to the Touch, as it uses a standard 3.5mm mini-jack connector.

The third generation Touch isn't perfect however. The 3.5-inch LCD display while
ultra-responsive in terms of its touch sensing suffers from limited viewing angles.
Viewing the screen from anywhere off-axis results in brightness and contrast loss.
The fact that you have to use Apple's own iTunes content management
software to transfer content onto the Touch is also an annoyance because we
noticed a few issues with synchronisation from time-to-time.

We'd prefer if you could just use the Touch as a USB stick, where you can simply
drag and drop what you want and don't want.

Verdict: An improvement over its predecessor and while it's great to use every day, it isn’t quite perfect.
