Live Updates and Insights on the iPod Touch Experience

The excitement was palpable as I spent my initial few hours exploring the iPod Touch. Here’s what I discovered:

First Impressions

Design and Feel: The iPod Touch presents a stark contrast to the iPhone in terms of its design and feel.

It’s noticeably thinner and lighter.

Headset Compatibility: It appears that the iPhone headset’s squeeze control feature is incompatible with the Touch. Further testing is needed to confirm.

Video Output: Unfortunately, the device does not connect with the Belkin dock for video output.

Audio Jack Placement: Surprisingly, the audio jack is located at the bottom of the device, which is an unusual choice.

Initial Connectivity Issues: My first attempt to connect the iPod Touch to iTunes was met with an error.

However, disconnecting and reconnecting the USB resolved the issue.

Calculator App: The calculator remains unchanged from the iPhone version and is quite basic.

Keyboard Feedback: The auditory feedback from the Touch’s keyboard is lighter and has a more distinct click compared to the iPhone.

Web Browsing: Safari operates smoothly on the Touch, provided WiFi is activated. All my Javascript bookmarklets functioned without any issues.

Alarm Features: The alarm sounds are limited and can only be heard through headphones since the device lacks a speaker and does not support vibration.
