Apple Rolls Out The New iPod Family
Most of the smart phones like iPhone, Android, and even Blackberry can play MP3 music. But if you're still all about having a dedicated MP3 device, Apple is still showing you love with the announcement of the new iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and shuffle.
The Shuffle has gone back to the buttons, but still caries voiceover features from the previous version. The Shuffle will also have a 15 hour battery life.
The iPod Nano has gotten the biggest physical change. Gone are the buttons, replaced with a multi-touch screen. It is 46% smaller and 42% lighter and still has FM radio, Nike+ support, and a pedometer. All this with 24 hours of battery life and it comes with a clip for the runners out there. Downside..... Gone is the video capability and with such a small screen, a touch screen seems a little silly.
The iPod Touch gets a face lift with the new retina display with the 326ppi resolution that the iPhone 4 has and is .33 inches thinner than the previous model. It comes with a HD camera that's able to shoot 720p video, and has a front facing camera for Facetime with other iPod Touch or iPhone 4 users. Apple also incorporated the A4 chip that's in the iPhone 4 along with the 3-axes gyroscope, all wrapped in iOS 4.1. Apple claims over 40 hours of audio along with 7 hours of video.
The new iPod family will hit the streets next week, along with the new iOS 4.1 download.
Apple representatives are standing by to take your order right now....... Hurry before they run out.
