Great news, Apple fans: the new iPod touch, which Steve Jobs recently flaunted on-stage at Apple's special event one week ago, is scheduled to hit stores today! This is great news for music lovers, as the latest version of Apple's touchable iPod is certainly something worth getting excited about. Aside from the touchscreen we all know and love, the fourth generation iPod touch also comes with the Retina display and a FaceTime camera. Additionally, a gyroscope is also included inside the device. For the past week we've all been pretty excited about the iPod touch's impending launch. Yet, as Engadget reports in its review of the device, there are a few downsides. First, the camera isn't as good as the iPhone 4's. While the rear camera is capable of recording HD video (720p), a different lens and sensor means the quality is seriously reduced. A fixed-focus lens also means the joys of autofocus (and tapping the screen to focus the lens) is no longer a possibility, photos taken on the iPod touch can easily turn out blurred.
