Question by : ipod touch 20010 – iphone 4?
i want to know why there is such i price gap between the iphone 4 and the new ipod touch when they practically have the same features, except ones a phone?
Answer by PFC
For starters, the iPod touch is designed for people who want the features of an iPhone, but don’t want or need the phone. Why pay for something you don’t need, right? the iPhone has a 3G connection as well as wifi, with built in gps support and compass. Have you seen the prices of gps’ lately? A good one ranges from 200 to 300 USD, and the iPhone is a very capable GPS device. This already tacks on quite a bit of money, but the ability to use Internet anywhere you are, given you have a 3G signal, is also a price raiser. The iPhone also has better cameras, and don’t take my word for it, but I believe it has more ram as well. (iPhone has 512MB while the new iPod retains it’s 256MB) With a contract, though, the iPhone paid in monthly increments is quite affordable, as it is included in your plan, plus a hundred or so extra dollars to pay for the phone. There really are many differences underneath separate the two and make the iPhone so much more expensive.
