The iPod Touch is Apple's latest addition to the iPod series and is basically an iPhone without the ability to make phone calls. It uses the ease of a touch screen to access the Internet, play multiple types of media and run applications. Another feature of the iPod Touch is the ability to play video through the television. All that's required is a compatible audio-video cable to connect to your television. Refer to the References section for compatible iPod audio video cables.
