Difference Between iPhone and iPod Touch

iphone-ipodtouchBoth the iphone and ipod touch are products that have become highly popular across the world. They are manufactured by American giant Apple Inc. but they are devices in different segments!

The iPod Touch is a portable media player that also functions as a personal digital assistant. It can be connected to a Wi-Fi mobile platform that has been manufactured by the parent company. The iPod Touch was unveiled to the world in 2007. On the other hand, the iPhone is a smartphone that shares the same hardware platform with the media player but as extra features like access to a telephone network and a built-in mike and camera.

The iPod Touch is therefore, thinner than the iPhone. When viewed from the front both the iPod Touch and iPhone appear almost identical because of the chrome frame. But, iPod Touch does not have a speaker on top of the screen nor the silent/ringer switch as the iPhone has. Also, the iPod Touch back is made of metal.

Apple also charges iPhone Touch for some software updates which are free for the iPhone user. The iPhone’s latest version is equipped with 3G features that make for enhanced data handling capabilities with sharper and better video and voice quality. Applications work much faster on the iPhone rather than the iPod Touch particularly when it comes to gaming.
You can shoot, edit and share videos with the iPhone apart from taking some fantastic still photos with the built-in 3-megapixel camera. It also comes with fantastic voice control features. There is also a built-in compass in the latest version of the iPhone. You can also use the Nike&iPod sensor with the iPhone.

The iPhone also comes with a MobileMe service that can help you locate where the device is. This can be done by logging on to me.com and viewing a map detailing an approximate location of your iPhone.
