Apple iPod Touch 64GB (5th Generation)
The iPod Touch takes top honors for a myriad of reasons. This 5th generation of the device offers longer battery life at around 48 hours of continuous music playback, a long list of games and apps available from Apple's App Store and a sleek and thin device that can fit in any pants pocket.
Formats such as MP3, AAC, uncompressed WAV, and ALAC are all compatible with the operating system and there are third party apps available to play other formats that aren't supported such as FLAC. The 4-inch retina display offers a wider screen for watching movies and playing games. At least two versions, the 32 and 64 GB models, have a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot gorgeous 1080p HD video. Sound quality is excellent (there's a reason these devices in particular are so popular) with earbuds upgraded from previous generations.
