Every Apple product, including the iPod touch has an inbuilt multitasking capability. Just like the Apple iPhone and iPad, it can be used to run a plethora of applications that enhance its usability.
The iPod touch 3G comes with 32 GB/64 GB of storage capacity and a whopping 256 MB of RAM and voice phone support, along with a significantly faster operating internal hardware. Its multi-touch graphical user interface makes its use as a portable media player and PDA (personal digital assistant) possible.
It is an iPod, a pocket computer, and a handheld gaming console, all bundled into one. Its accessories include a headphone, remote, and a microphone set. Since the device provides wireless access to the iTunes store, as well as access to the Apple's 'App Store', you can download loads of free and paid apps.
