Besides a new iPod nano, Apple also rolled out a new iPod touch. The first iPod touch was unveiled about a year ago and the second-generation touch packs a thinner design, volume control buttons, a built-in speaker, more games and better App Store integration. Steve Jobs said the "iPod touch is the funnest iPod we've ever created."
Apple® today introduced the second generation iPod® touch featuring an amazingly thin contoured metal design, a gorgeous 3.5-inch widescreen glass display, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking, integrated volume control buttons, a built-in speaker for casual listening, a built-in accelerometer and other advanced sensors, and Apple’s revolutionary Multi-Touch™ user interface. iPod touch, now available for just $229 for the 8GB model, is perfect for playing music, movies and games, with millions of songs, thousands of Hollywood movies and hundreds of games available on the iTunes® Store.
The new iPod touch is smaller and lighter than the original, with a sleek new design that features a contoured metal enclosure with integrated volume control buttons and a brilliant 3.5-inch widescreen glass display. With its rounded edges, flush display and curved, more compact design, the new iPod touch is more comfortable to hold and more portable than ever.
iPod touch users can choose from hundreds of exciting game titles such as “Spore Origins” and “Scrabble” from Electronic Arts, and “Real Football 2009” from Gameloft available on iTunes or directly through the App Store application on the iPod touch. The revolutionary App Store works over Wi-Fi, enabling users to browse, purchase and wirelessly download applications directly onto their iPod touch and start using them instantly. The App Store features an incredible array of applications in a wide variety of categories, including games, travel, entertainment, social networking, sports and much more.
The second-gen iPod touch plays back 36 hours of music or six hours of video on a single charge. You can get a 8GB model for $229, 16GB for $299 and 32GB for $399.
Apple also introduced the "one-size-fits-all" 120GB iPod classic for $249, but that device has the same specs as the previous model.
