The only real performance related hardware difference between the iPhone 4 and the new iPod touch is that the iPhone 4 has 512MB of RAM while the iPod touch has only 256MB (like the iPad). You might be wondering what impact such a difference will have on your daily usage. Well, iSpazio came across an interesting video that pits the two devices against each other. As you’ll see, the iPod touch is actually just as fast as the iPhone 4, and even beats it sometimes.
Appleinsider claims that Apple may already be in "advanced testing stages" of a new FaceTime capable iPads.

Let's look at the following statement of the editor of Wired, Chris Anderson:

It seems that the new iPhone 4 from Apple plans to conquer a well-supplied market of China, as this device has got an important approval from government agencies.
Apple has recently won the network license of China for its iPhone 4 from the Certification Center of Telecommunication Equipment. It fully corresponds to the statements of China Unicom, a carrier of Apple products in China, which said that it is planning to sell iPhones a bit later this year.
It is a rather interesting idea of Apple, as it is going to open a lot of retail stores all over the territory of China to attract more customers.

Apple has released iOS 4.1 for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 2G, iPod Touch 3G and iPod touch 4G.

Full official changelog and download links are after the break:

The good: The fourth generation of Apple's iPod Touch offers nothing but improvements, including an HD camcorder, front-facing camera, integrated microphone, FaceTime video calling, Retina Display, gyroscope sensor, and a slimmer, lighter design.
The bad: Photo quality doesn't hold up to the iPhone 4's; there's no GPS, and no option for 3G data service.
The bottom line: The iPod Touch is the best iPod yet, offering all the fun of the iPhone experience without a carrier contract or monthly bill.
