Apple Announce the New iPod Shuffle, 64GB iPod Touch, 160GB iPod Classic and iPod Nano With a Camera

Labels: , , , , , ,

Yes, I'm going to make this one long post of all of the iPods that Apple announced at their event today. First up, we have the new iPod Shuffle. The 2GB model will now go for $59 and the 4GB model will be available for just $79. They also added in a new Special Edition stainless steel model which is $99 for 4GB of storage. The iPod Shuffles are now available in pink, green, and blue models as well.

There were big rumours about the iPod Touch gaining a camera, but that turned out to be false. There is no camera on the new iPod Touches and that's definitely a sad thing for those who were looking forward to it. Nothing entirely too big here, basically. They announced a $199 8GB model, a $299 32GB model, and a $399 64GB model, which is seen above. The look is still the same, and I now hate it because it's been around for too long. Although there is no camera, the CPU did get an upgrade, the 64GB model is said to be "50% faster" and it supports OpenGL, which should make gaming even better.

Apple went on to announce a new iPod Classic that has 160GB of internal storage. Even though the storage was bumped up 40GB, it has the exact same dimensions as the old 120GB model. It's now available for $249.

Last, but definitely not least, it's the new iPod Nanos. These were definitely my favourite iPod announcement. Unlike the iPod Touches, the iPod Nanos do have a camera. The new iPod Nano has: a 2.2-inch display with a 240 x 376 resolution, an FM tuner, a microphone, a speaker, and VGA @ 30fps recording abilities. The dimensions are the exact same as the last Nano but it weighs 1.28 ounces, which is 0.02 ounces lighter than the last model. "Apple claims that the new nano can last up to 24 hours when playing back audio, while video playback should zap the rechargeable battery in just five hours." These Nanos are now available for $149 for the 8GB model and $179 for the 16GB model.

Apple iPod Classic looks amazing. I like the sleek design. It is very simple to operate and battery life is very good. It is available in 2 colors silver and black. People need not worry about the sound quality, its very clear. Video quality is also satisfying. For more details refer apple ipod classic

I'd rather get an iPod Touch, that's the in-thing right now. I'd actually rather get the Zune HD though. That looks like it will be a great PMP!
