4 Methods to Play Flash SWF on iPod touch
iPod Touch, actually a very confusing product delivery because it is almost the same with iPhone except it cannot call!
There are 4 models in iPod Touch family and iPod Touch is just one of the 4 iPod product lines. iPod Touch 4 is the latest model so far that features a front-facing camera for FaceTime, the iPhone 4's Retina display without an IPS screen, support for recording 720p video and 960 x 720 still photos via a back camera, Apple's A4 chip, a built-in microphone, a 3-axis gyroscope and a darker and more glassy blank display.
Although iPod Touch and iPhone are too much alike, the following chart is still going to show you some differences besides the similarities.
