Aaaaand surprise surprise Apple announce new iPods too...
Apple, alongside the announcement of the new iPhone 5, have completely refreshed the iPod range.
By Alan Metcalfe
It's the 7th Generation of the teeny iPod
5.4mm thick, 38% thinner than the last
New Volume buttons on the side, quite like the iPhone, with a third functional button for Play/Pause in between them
Multitouch screen (what you expect from the iPod touch or iPhone)
And a big home button
Available in Seven colours, aluminum, black, purple, green, blue, yellow and red.
There's an FM tuner too, just in case every song you've ever owned wasn't enough for you
You can view photos and widescreen videos
Pedomoeter and Fitness app built in, so no need for Nike + accessories
Bluetooth too, so you can now stream to your car radio
30 hours of music battery life
And the new Lightening connection is as standard - surprise Surprise
Price: 16GB for $199 or 32GB for $249
5th Generation of the iPhone that isn't an iPhone
88 grams in weight
It has a slightly squared back, which makes it even more like a neutered iPhone
Same size as the new iPhone 5, 4inch screen
Retina display, the same as the new iPhone 5
40 hours of music playback, and 8 hours of video on the new battery
5 Megapixel iSight Camera, with all the bells and whistles of the new iPhone 5, including panoramic photography
A new button on the back, called the iPod Touch loop - a place for you to attach a wrist strap to keep it safe while you walk around, or take photos with it. A clever move by Apple, obviously trying to capture some of the compact camera market
A 720p Factime Camera, so you can burst your spots or do your eye makeup
And there's 5 colours - raw aluminium, black, blue, yellow and red - with matching wrist bands. Hoorah
Price: 32GB is $299 or 64GB for $399
Ah yea, you know Apple. Let's reinvent the wheel, make it white, and considerably more expensive.
- "They look like no earphone you've ever seen before"... Apparently.
- The speaker port points right into your ear canal. Which is better... Apparently.
- It has buttons that do things, because doing things with your headphones is really important... Apparently.
What sort of sucker would buy all this overpriced gack?
