IPod Touch 5th

I too was very upset to find there was no rear camera, bought this for my granddaughter. I think Apple should change it so it includes the rear camera.

After I found out that there was no rear camera, I know that this is a complete RIP OFF. Apple has seriously gone crazy, why would they remove one of the best parts of the iPod Touch. I always use the camera on my iPod touch 4th generation. I really wanted an iOS 7 experience and now there is a feature removed which is very important to me and most people! And [PRICE] is very expensive for the model with a camera. And I was going to buy one of these iPod's and another one as a gift for my dad. Now I am not getting even 1 iPod. Congratulations Apple! I am not going to buy any more of your products anymore. And also, I just switched my phone to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from an iPhone 5. I was also going to buy an iPad Mini Retina for my daughter for her birthday next month... Now I am getting her a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) Tablet.

Did not do my homework before ordering and was not aware that this iPod did not come with the rear camera. You can only take selfies. What were they thinking??? Other than this disappointment, the iPod was as expected and perfect for my needs.
