Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation is a little bit outdated iOS tablet released in 2012, with a fast Dual-Core CPU running at 1 GHz, a small sized 4-inches multi-touch display, and two cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. But let's get into much more detail.

Being just 0.24" thick,the Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation is slim and stilized. This tablet is offerred in two color options, black and white. This tablet is much lighter than what one would expect from a tablet like this.

Apple decided to build this tablet with a Apple A5 system chip, holding a good performance 1 GHz Dual-Core CPU and 512 MB RAM. Graphic intensive tasks generally uses a lot of processing time, so this tablet has an additional 200 megahertz PowerVR SGX543 MP2 graphic processing unit to help with that calculations. A key feature of the iPod Touch 5th Generation is the 64 GB inmense internal storage and even though it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of applications and even the largest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling it.

The iPod Touch 5th Generation includes a spectacular 1136 x 640 4 inches screen, providing this tablet with a high level graphical experience. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The iPod Touch 5th Generation doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't work with GSM networks.

The Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation has two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. It is capable of capturing Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 frames per second. This tablet also has lots of valuable characteristics like flash, digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The iPod Touch 5th Generation packs a poor capacity 1030 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours, although you will need to charge it even after moderate usage. A big issue to take into consideration is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to lose its charge, making it necessary to change the whole tablet.

The Apple iPod Touch 5th Generation also includes Bluetooth (for communication with other devices, computers and accessories), and some sensors likeAccelerometer and Gyroscope.

This tablet is priced about 265 dollars, which is not very cheap for comparing with similar devices. In case are looking for a social tablet, this tablet is probably a good choice for you.
