iPod Touch – The new addition in iPod family
Recently, at the Apple’s 5th Apple event, they revealed some new features in their products, price-cuts and some iPhone announcements. But the major announcement for the day was the new product line of their iPod series. The latest addition in the iPod family is called iPod Touch.
What comes first tin your mind when you see the image above? iPhone, right? But no, this is not the iPhone. It is the new product in the iPod product family :) . It has the same screen size as the iPhone, but it is thinner at around 8mm. It has 3.5 inch wide-screen display with the “slide to unlock” feature. The best feature I liked is the built-in “WiFi” through which, you can browse the web, buy music with iTunes and watch videos on YouTube (a built-in application in iPod Touch). The battery lasts quite long as compared to other iPods. Battery will last 22 hrs. for audio playback and 5 hrs. for video playback. As for the prices are concerned, 8GB version comes for $299 and the 16GB for $399. It’s expected to release on Tuesday next week. So we’ll have to wait and see what pans out :) .
The rest of the family members include:
This was formerly know as iPod Video. This is also coming out somewhere next week. Comes in two flavors, 80GB and a whopping 160GB.
They now also support video playback. it has 2-inch QVGA, 320 x 240 display screen and the screen is 65% brighter then the previous versions. Comes in two flavors, 4GB ($149) and 8GB ($199) versions. These are also hitting the stores next weekend.
Still the same, nothing new. 1GB comes for $79.
How’s the new family? :D I’m planning to buy the new iPod Nano when it comes out. The new one is really cute and cool :) .
So what are your views? Is this generation any better than the previous ones? Do let me know below.
