And each model is somewhat different in functionality or performance from the previous one. For example, the popular iPod touch has from 16 to 64 GB of internal memory, a 5 megapixel camera, dimensions of 123x58x6 and 88 grams of weight. These parameters may vary depending on the range of iPods.

  • IPod has not a very large number of applications to work in contrast to the iPhone and the iPad.
