Apple has posted a PDF-formatted Features Guide for the iPod touch. The 85-page guide covers virtually all aspects of the device’s features, interface, and connectivity. According to the guide, the iPod touch will come with a pack-in stand for viewing video and photo slideshows, and will allow users to display playback controls when the device is locked with a double-click of the Home button. The guide also explains the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store in detail; for example, songs purchased from the store are placed in a “Purchased on (name of the iPod)” playlist, as well as the traditional “Purchased” playlist, when the touch is synced with the user’s computer.
