There are many avenues to explore when looking for a cheap iPod Touch. Thanks to a market that continually releases newer models, you can find a cheap iPod Touch used, or even brand new. This article will discuss what the difference between the older models are, and what the affordable ones retail around.
To find a cheap iPod Touch, you have to first decide how inexpensive you are willing to go. The 8 gig model, which although is touted as third generation, is in fact a second generation one. This cheap iPod Touch can go for around £139.95 brand new, but half of that used in online market stores. This version does almost all the same things as the 4th generation one, but with some significant differences. It can not be upgraded to iOS 4.3, which allows for Wi-Fi hot spot tethering. It can not stream content in a cloud like fashion from iTunes, and presently you can’t have wallpapers behind the icons. These features can be all minor things, if you just want a cheap iPod Touch, and want it just for the main digital media functions. It’s a very good release, and the differences are hardly noticeable to the casual user.
Older models of the iPod can also go for far less, but you get more than what you pay for with the 8 gig third generation model. The 4th generation is also a fairly cheap iPod Touch. This retails for new for £140.00. This will be able to do everything that the iPod touch is capable of. With its streaming capabilities, it would be easy to keep a good amount of music on an external device and stream it over the network, thus making the 8 gig limits less limiting. These factors make going the cheaper route more bearable, and cosmetically there are no differences between them.
