Apple 8GB Black 4th Generation iPod Touch - MC540LLA

We added all our most advanced features to iPod touch. Just for the fun of it. Share good times with friends over FaceTime. Shoot scenes in HD. Or play games on the highest-resolution iPod screen ever. In fact, iPod touch has so much technology, you’ll forget it’s an iPod.

Invest in the stylish Apple MC540LL/A 8GB 4th Generation Black iPod Touch and be the center of everyone’s attention. The iPod touch has a retina display that produces crystal clear images and amazingly legible text. You can store all your music, videos, images and other files in the iPod’s 8GB hard drive. This iPod Touch with FaceTime feature (enabled with Wi-Fi) not only lets you share a conversation, it lets you do it face to face with the dual cameras. Many other interesting features, such as HD video recording and editing, Game Center, App Store etc. make this iPod Touch with FaceTime a must have. The Game Center option lets you team up with your friends or any random opponent for an interesting game. You can also record videos with this Apple 4th Gen iPod Touch and share it instantly with friends and family.

Features:

  • FaceTime FaceTime on iPod touch lets you hang out, catch up, and goof off with friends in an entirely new way. With just a tap, you can see what your friends are up to — literally. Witness a prank in action. Or watch your friend on the other side of the country crack up at your stories from last night — new iPod touch to new iPod touch or iPhone 4 over Wi-Fi. And all you need to get started is an Apple ID and an email account. You can choose an email account you already have or, if you prefer, set up a new one. You’ll never see fun the same way again.
  • Retina Display The Retina display on iPod touch brings out the awesome in anything on it. That’s because it’s the highest-resolution iPod screen ever, with four times the pixel count of previous iPod models. In fact, there are so many pixels, the human eye can’t distinguish individual ones. Which makes graphics and images stunningly sharp, and text amazingly crisp. Just like the printed page.
  • HD Video Recording And Editing “You should have seen it!” is a thing of the past. Because with iPod touch, you’ll always have a great HD video camera with you. Say you’re at a party and you see someone popping and locking. You’re ready to capture the moment in all its glory. In high-definition 720p video. You can record video in low-light settings, thanks to the advanced backside illumination sensor. You can even edit and create your own mini blockbuster right on iPod touch using the new iMovie app — with Apple-designed themes, titles, and transitions. It’s available on the App Store for $4.99.
  • Game Center It’s time to make a game plan. The new Game Center app on iPod touch lets you add more players to your gaming network. Invite friends to join. Then totally dominate them. Take a look at how your score ranks against your friends and other players of each game. Compare game achievements with your friends. Put together a select group of friends to play with. Or choose to automatically go up against people you don’t know in a multiplayer game. So get in the game. And get your friends in it, too.
  • Music With iPod touch, you don't just play your music. You hear it, and see it, in entirely different ways. Let Genius search your library and automatically create a mix just for you. Or give Genius playlist a go, and Genius will use a song you really love to find other tracks from your library that go great with it. You can also view album art in Cover Flow. Or shake to shuffle for a fresh take on your music library.
  • Movies And TV Shows Your favorite movies and TV shows are now playing on a subway train or plane near you. Because you can buy movies and TV shows, or just rent them, right on iPod touch. Shop the iTunes Store and choose from thousands of must-see titles to fill your iPod touch. Then watch them on the amazing 3.5-inch color widescreen Retina display.
  • App Store Download apps directly to iPod touch.
  • iTunes Create an iTunes Store account and shop over Wi-Fi anytime.
  • iBooks Available as a free download, iBooks is an amazing ebook reader and a great place to buy books.
  • iMovie Edit video, add themes and music, and share your movies. Available on the App Store for just $4.99.
  • Mail Send email and view attachments from your Gmail, MobileMe, or other email account.
  • Safari Web Browser Visit your favorite websites. All you need is your iPod touch and Wi-Fi.
