4th Gen iPod Touch vs. Original iPod

It's been 10 years since the release of Apple's iPod, the gadget that forever changed how we listen to music... and not only has the music industry changed with the iPod and iTunes, but so has the iPod's overall design and user interface. Although the image above speaks for itself... check out the (general) specs of how they compare below. 

Original iPod
...features a 5 GB hard drive (10 GB option available after March 21, 2002) capable of holding 1000 songs in 160-Kbps MP3 format (or 2000 on the 10 GB drive), a high output amplifier (60-mW), a FireWire port, and a standard 3.5-mm headphone jack in an ultrasleek "iBook white" and stainless steel case with a 2-inch white backlit LCD display. Battery life is an estimated 10 hours. 
Fourth Gen iPod Touch
A major update to Apple’s most versatile iPod, adding twin cameras, a high-resolution 960x640 3.5" screen, a microphone, a bigger and longer-lasting battery, and a 3-axis gyroscope, amongst other features. Now capable of video calling using FaceTime, high-definition video playback and storage, and recording of 720p movies with the rear camera. New body design is slimmer and lighter than before while remaining solid in the hand. Remains capable of great audio performance, including better speaker quality. As of October 2011, available in both original black and new white versions, both with stainless steel backs. Built in rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Music playback time up to 40 hours and 7 hours of video playback time. Available in 8GB, 32GB and 64GB.
