The iPod Touch has clearly been the hottest version of Apple’s venerable series of portable media players to hit store shelves yet, but there’s been a problem: due to it using flash memory as opposed to a standard hard drive, it’s had to keep its capacity relatively low. 16GB was as big as you could get, while other iPods had capacities many times that. So it became a choice: do you want a smaller, slicker iPod, or a larger, more traditional model?
Well, good news. Now you don’t need to make that difficult choice, as Apple has crammed a 32GB flash drive into its new iPod Touch. So you get all the fun touchscreen action, the Internet connectivity, the media functions, and that beautiful widescreen without having to decide what small percentage of your music collection gets to take a ride on your iPod. Don’t worry: the gigantic 160GB iPod classic is still available for your music hoarders out there, but for those of us with a respectably large but not yet insane music collection who wants to hop on the iPod Touch bandwagon now have one less reason to make the leap.
