    Here's a strange thing I noticed, and I can't find much information on the Internet of it.
    When I read the technical specification of the ipod touch, I noticed the screen only displays 64k colors! That's the same amount of colors as the ipod nano.
    Isn't that strange? I did some research and found that even the creative zen displays 16.4m (=Million!) colors!

    Is this a 'problem', or hardly noticeable? Or is the information I achieved incorrect? 64000 colors seems to me a low amount of colors, even my 5-year old cellphone displays that amount of colors, and most of the cellphones nowadays display 256k colors....?

    I believe it's actually 32-bit which is something like 16 million colors.

    I absolutely guarantee you that it is not 64k colours. My phone is 256k, and the iPod Touch blows it away in terms of colours. I think that the above poster who mentioned 32-bit colours is right - or it's somewhere along those lines. Trust me, there is no way that screen is 64k. Not a chance.

    lol, but yeah, 64k seems low to me. I think that is wrong.

    How can you think Touch is 64k colours, you've seen icons, pictures, right?
    The shine, gradients, sunburst, etc.
    It's DEFINITELY 32-bit (16mil).

    No, I found this information also on other websites. And I don't expect websites to lie about something like that. And yeah, it also seemed strange to me, since 64k doesn't display colors that great
