The iPod touch (1st Generation) is an iPhone OS-based general-purpose mobile computer designed and formerly marketed by Apple Inc. The iPod touch was released on September 5, 2007, following the release of the first-generation iPhone's June 29 release. The iPod touch is commonly referred to as 'training wheels for the iPhone', or 'an iPhone without the phone'. This is because the iPod touch ran iPhone OS just like the iPhone, minus features such as telephony, text messaging, cellular connectivity, as well as Bluetooth.
This model notably lacks numerous features that can be found in later models, including:
- Volume buttons
- Integrated speaker
The 1st generation is the only iPod touch to be able to be charged via FireWire. To compensate for the lack of the internal speaker, a "clicker" was used to make the keyboard and lock/unlock sounds instead.
