The new iPod touch runs on iOS 5, which includes over 200 new features including iMessage, Game Center, Notifications and Wi-Fi Syncing to iTunes.

iMessage brings the functionality of iPhone messaging to consumers' iPod touch, so consumers can send text messages, photos, videos and contact information to an individual or group on other iOS 5 devices. It also allows consumers to maintain one conversation across all their iOS devices - for free - with notifications, read receipts and typing indication.

Game Center enhancements include the ability to add photos to consumers' profile, purchase new games from within the Game Center app, and even ways to find friends and new games.

iPod touch also works with iCloud, Apple's set of free cloud services, including iTunes in the Cloud, Photo Stream and Documents in the Cloud, that work with the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC to automatically and wirelessly store content and push it to devices. When content changes on one device, all other devices are updated automatically and wirelessly.
