iPod touch: Kids review!

The iPod touch is now colorful and camera-equiped across the line, and available for just $199 for 16GB, and just $249 or $299 for 32GB or 64GB. To get to those price points, however, it eschews cutting-edge specs. It's not the fastest processor or highest-end camera. It's simply the least expensive, most portable way way to get onto iOS and the App Store. So what does that mean for the experience? How productive and how much fun is it to use?

To answer those questions we turned to our our ace 5-year old and 8-year old review team — my god children. Both are iPod touch users. Both use the iPod touch to pictures and videos, to share photos and make movies, to stay in touch with their extended families, to keep up with their school work, and to learn more about the world around them. And, in the video above, both of them were gracious enough to take some time and show us just exactly that.

So sit back, hit play, and check out our first kids-on — a day in their lives with the iPod touch.

iPod touch: Kids review!


It's amazing to me how much money a parent today will spend on their kids compared to when I was growing up. A 5 or 8 yr old with a $200 iPod Touch? Not in my household.

That was amazing Rene great job for a minute I thought I was looking at an apple add. They need to hire you part time of course you can't leave imore.
