The iPt4 is a piece of junk. Bad battery life and inferior screen compared to the iPhone 4S. I had one and got rid of it. The iPt5 has a screen comparable to the iPhone 5 and much better battery life. Plus the A5 chip in the iPt5 is much faster than the one in the iPt4 with twice the zip and twice the RAM. The iPt5 is the first truly major overhaul to the touch line and they finally did it right.
EDIT: Forgot to mention that iPt4 is a two year old technology now as they failed to update it last year, except to offer a white model.
