Which Apple music player i should buy?

Asked by panspermia (308points) November 11th, 2009

I’ve been thinking to buy Apple mp3/mp4 player.. You know Apple introduces us the 5th gen of ipod. On the other hand there is this ipod touch! I can’t decide which one to buy,both of their feature’s are good…Here is the summary:
**Nano 5th Generation has;
-video camera
-FM radio with live pause

**Ipod Touch:
-watching movie
-run apps
-wireless connection

What do you think i might have it?

Most phones have camera’s on them and some have radio now so I would go with the touch

Definatly the iPod touch :) if u want something more modest, an iPod nano will do the trick. They are relatively inexpensive, and have some nice features

The iPod touch offers more bang for the buck. It’s really a computer in your pocket.

The iPod nano is awesome… but I think it’s more for those who need that specific form factor (like for running/exercise) or really just want the camera and/or radio.

I prefer to run with a nano. I prefer to interact with the touch.

@robmandu thats what i am asking for !!! thats why i cannot decide which one to buy! nano is smaller and pretty but touch is awesome at the same time !!

The iPod touch is pretty slim. Unless you’re gonna be jostling around a lot (like jogging), I wouldn’t sweat the size difference.

Will you need to interact with it without looking at it – like when running? To skip a song or change the volume slightly? Yes? Get the nano.

Or you can drop more coin to get the touch with one of those headphones-with-remotes-built-into-the-line.

For my money, I’d still get the touch.

Got a Wal-Mart – or better yet, an Apple Store – where you can put your hands on some?

Try that. Get to know them first, if you can.

I really like my iPod Touch. I was at Burger King the other day and got a few open wifi connections. I was able to check my email and browse the Internet. There is even open connections at the two bus stops I use the most.

You can definitely do more with the touch, but I think it is a bit more fragile with the big screen, I have seen a couple where the screens have been cracked.

I have a Nano 4th generation and I love it because it is so small but you can still watch movies on it.

But if the smaller size is not a big deal to you and you keep the touch in a case, that is probably the way to go.

of have one of both!

I must admit I was quite jealous when me and a mate were in the pub and both had to get trains to different places, I phoned my wife to check the train times and my mate just whipped out his touch (oo err) and checked his, I would still rather have a wife than an iPod Touch though

@rooeytoo :: I take naps all the time and forget to take it out of my pocket. The screen hasn’t shattered yet. I don’t use a case and the screen isn’t even scratched and I keep it in the same pocket as my lighter. The back is scratched to hell. But the damn thing is durable. I have dropped mine on concrete a few times.

@johnpowell – the ones I see have really had a rough life I will admit. I am sure that the average person would probably have a lot less trouble with them! I said the same about iphone and the same comments were made. I guess I just see the worst cases!
