By the look of it, it’s like iPhone, just slimmer. It’s basically an inheritance of iPhone except the phone/text function. It’s got all the touch flipping, images viewing we’ve seen in iPhone. Here’s more inside iPod Touch:

  • Multi-touch user screen
  • WiFi supported
  • Safari Browser
  • Google and Yahoo Search
  • Direct songs download
  • Youtube
  • Calendar
  • Clock
