Apple Announces 4-Inch iPod Touch, Multitouch iPod Nano
Today, Apple updated its iPod touch line to a 5th generation model which incorporates the same larger 4" screen as the just announced iPhone 5. At only 6.1mm thin and 88 grams, the iPod touch is the lightest iPod touch they've created. The new iPod touch also contains the A5 processor.
Apple is promising 40 hours of music playback, and 8 hours of video, slightly increased over the 4th generation Touch. The back camera is much improved to a 5-megapixel, backside illuminated, f/2.4, 5-element lens, with the same sapphire crystal lens cover as the iPhone 5. The front camera is also upgraded to a 720p camera. The new iPod touch also supports the new Panaroma feature and also includes Siri.
Finally, there's hidden feature on the back of the new iPod Touch, called the Loop. It's designed to hook to a wrist-strap for added security.
The new iPod touch comes in five colors and will be available in October at $299 (32GB) and $399 (64GB). The 4th Generation iPod Touch will remain at $199 (16GB). Preorders for the new iPod Touch begin September 14th.
Apple also announced a radically redesigned iPod nano. The new iPod nano has a 2.5" screen and multi-touch interface. The design shares a lot of cues from the iPhone with the inclusion of a front Home button. The iPod nano includes an FM tuner, widescreen video, pedometer, Bluetooth, and the new Lightning connector.
The new iPod nano comes in 7 colors and will be available in October for $149. Preorders for the new iPod Nano begin September 14th.
The iPod Shuffle was upgraded with new color choices, but the same $49 pricing and 2GB capacity.

Not really happy with the price point, I was hoping for a 4" at $199..

The new iPod touch colours look horrific.
I hope they look better in person.

Ugh. I really was excited for the new Nano until it was unveiled. The 4th generation Nano is definitely the best one to date.
Does anyone else think the new Nano is basically a white-faced Lumia?

I really wish Apple would use the option key a little more, and the command key a little less.

I was hoping for larger storage on the Nano by now. 32GB at least for the top end model. Oh well.

The new iPod Touch has the new taller display of the iPhone 5, an A5 CPU/GPU, a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash and Siri. Great!
No GPS on the new iPod touch?
No camera on the new iPod nano?
Higher price for the new iPod touch?
At least, this might make my watch-style iPod nano go up in price. You know, the one some of us got as a replacement for our 1st-gen iPod nano with the bad battery?

How much RAM is in the new iPod Touch? I hope it has more than 256 MB of RAM or I won't be getting it.
Also too bad they don't have purple back iPod Touch. I will just get the white one with the silver back then.
