Apple introduces iPod touch with Retina Display, FaceTime, HD Video
As part of the 2010 special music event, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced a new iPod touch with Retina Display, HD video recording, FaceTime video calling, Apple A4 chip, 3-axis gyro, and iOS 4.1 with Game Center.
“We’ve put our most advanced technology inside the new iPod touch,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Whether you’re listening to music, playing games, making FaceTime video calls, browsing the web, capturing HD video or watching TV shows and movies, the new iPod touch with its Retina display, A4 chip and 3-axis gyro is more fun than ever.”
The good news is that the video recording really is 720p. The bad news is that the still photos are only 960x720(!). And yes, it's thin.
Unlike last year, they're not letting the previous generation iPod touch linger around as the bargain basement SKU either. Every storage size and price point gets the new features.
Pricing is 8GB/$229. 32GB/$229, and 64GB/$399. (No 128GB model, sorry, iPod classic does linger for that...) and it starts shipping next week.
Anyone getting one?
