This is my experience of purchasing 8gb iPod touch 4th generation via walmart.com I can safely say that iPod touch is, without a doubt, the best portable media player, if not the best ipod as of yet. It's easy to use, even for people who consider themselves "technologically impaired". Especially this having ability to be your camcorder, handheld gaming console, PDA, and etc. Well, listing all specs is a waste of time. However, I would have to compare this device to iPhone 4. 1. Comparison of iPhone 4 camera and iPod touch 4g camera:
You judge. I have no problem with cameras. It can record upto HD quality videos. For the price of $195 (for 8gb), it's pretty good. It's actually comparable to some of the low-end camcorders. Don't expect good quality pictures though. Remember, this is not a camera. iPhone 4 obviously has better back camera. 2. RAM and multitask-ability
First of all, iPod touch has 256MB RAM, while iPhone 4 has 512MB. Too be honest though, I haven't had much trouble with multitasks or lags. However, iOS devices have the habit of being "slower" after installing big apps via in-device app store. So, be sure to reboot your device after installing multiple apps, or a big app. 3. Fragility
Well, let's just say if you had 200 dollars to get this, you probably should spend enough money on buying a good case as well. I can't guarantee that your device won't break after a drop. As far as reviews say, iPhone 4 is not too fragile, but you're recommended to have a case. I personally recommend Otterbox cases.

I personally had no problems, but after many complaints on battery issues, Apple has released iOS 5.0.1, which would drain less battery life. However, if you're concerned about battery life, always have it charged. No comparison for battery life. 5. Jailbreaking
Today is November 18th, 2011. As of now, unless you buy old iPod touch 4g, it comes with iOS 5 which ISN'T "fully" jailbreak-able right now. Tethered jailbreak is an option, but it's probably better to wait till full jailbreak comes out. Same with iPhone 4.
(please support app makers by not using cracked apps.) if you purchase this via walmart.com...
1. It comes in a mailing box (like a package box). You need original packaging to return/exchange, so keep it for at least 2 weeks...
2. Rest are the same. It comes with earpiece, dock connector, Apple stickers, and bunch of manuals which you probably won't need.
3. It took 1 week - a week and half for delivery. Delivery estimate is very much accurate.
