iPod Touch

I have added something to my wish list.

Most of you would have heard of the iPhone, which is Apple’s super cool smart phone. The iPhone is not officially available in Malaysia, but here is another device which is just as cool.

The iPod Touch can do everything an iPhone can do except take photos and make phone calls.

What I love about the iPod Touch is you can run Java applications just like the iPhone, and you have the same multi-touch interface.

In case you are wondering, what sets the Apple iPhone apart for other touch screen PDAs and smart phones is the multi-touch interface, which means it can detect more than one touch at the same time.

This allows you to do things like ‘squeeze’ a picture to minimize. There are rumours that the new MacBooks may come with a multi-touch trackpad.

This iPod also has limited motion sensing capabilities which detects motions like tilt and shake.

While I don’t really care for the music playing capabilities, I am intrigued that Apple is trying to push the iPod Touch as a portable gaming system like the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS.

I’m wondering if can replace my aging PDA.

It even comes with a microphone so the hardware is actually capable of supporting a voice over IP application.

It retails for RM1800 the last time I checked, which means that the chances of me getting one will be almost impossible.
