£145 iPod touch, 8GB (current generation) at Apple

Apple's new iPod touch packs more features into a sleeker design and feels even better in your hand!

The iPod touch has a revolutionary touch interface and has been designed to let you control everything using your fingertips.

The iPod touch responds to motion using a built-in accelerometer, so you can immediately see the entire width of a web page, view a photo in full, or control a game using only your movements.

You can browse over and download loads of games and applications in almost every category at the Apple Store on iTunes or right on your iPod, and rock while you run with the built-in Nike + iPod support.

The iPod touch no longer plays just music; it also keeps a record of your workout performances, tracking your time, distance and calories burnt thanks to the sensor that you slip into your shoe.

The new iPod touch's body is stunningly thin and made of polished stainless steel for a more comfortable grip, and volume controls have been built into the left side to give you easy access to the most frequently used settings.

Plus, the iPod touch is equipped with a built-in speaker that lets you hear music, dialogues and action without headphones, ideal for casual listening, and an astonishing battery life for up to 36 hours of non-stop music and 6 hours of video playback.

A new Genius feature has also been integrated into the iPod touch, allowing you to create your very own multimedia library and music mixes. Music and videos on the iPod touch not only sound amazing; they look amazing, too.

You can buy this iPod touch for £145. You can also find similar deals from our online price comparator.
