Product Details

Apple 8GB Black 3rd Generation iPod Touch, Model MC086LLA

Features:

  • Music
    Flick through your albums. Listen to a unique mix created just for you. Or watch the video for your favorite song. With iPod touch, it’s more than just hearing your music
  • Movies + TV Shows
    A feature film. A video podcast. Your favorite TV show. Now appearing on a subway train or a plane near you
  • App Store
    Shop the App Store and discover over 75,000 apps that let you do even more with your iPod touch. Browse apps in categories from games to lifestyle, social networking to education, and more
  • iTunes
    Discover and download new music, movies, TV shows, and audiobooks with iTunes on your iPod touch
  • Voice Control
    Voice Control on the new 8GB iPod touch gives you the ability to control music playback with spoken commands. You say it. iPod touch plays it. And shuffles it, pauses it, or names it
  • Photos
    With storage for up to 10,000 of your favorite photos, iPod touch lets you flick through and share all those remember-that-day moments
  • Home Screen
    Maybe you want Maps as the first app in the second row. Or Mail down in the Dock. Whatever the arrangement, make iPod touch your own with customized Home screens
  • Safari Web Browser
    iPod touch features Safari, the most advanced web browser ever on a portable device. See the web in your hands the same way you see it on a computer. All you need is a
    Wi-Fi connection
  • Mail
    Email on iPod touch looks and works just like email on your computer. And it works with the email accounts you already have
  • Maps
    Find your way and a place to eat. With Maps and a Wi-Fi connection, you can get directions, find local businesses, and check traffic
  • YouTube
    Skateboarding moves gone wrong. Hilarious commercials from another country. Whatever the video, iPod touch has your YouTube addiction covered
  • Nike + iPod
    Rock out your workout. iPod touch has built-in support for Nike + iPod. It’s music and motivation rolled into one
  • Voice Memos
    You might have a good memory. But sometimes, it’s nice to have a backup. With Voice Memos, you can record little (and big) bits of information to your iPod touch

          Comments about Apple 8GB Black 3rd Generation iPod Touch:

          Product was bought for my two children for Christmas - 7 and 8 yrs old. Bought mostly for apps and games but some music. Would recommend not allowing a passcode to access the phone. My 8 yrs old decided to change it so her 17 yr old brother would not use it and she forgot what she changed it to. All the apps we paid for that were downloaded were lost since we had to do a full system restore to re-access the ipod. Speaker not good at all. Recommend purchasing insurance as well. Childs friend already dropped and cracked the screen after 3 days...
