Apple updates iPod nano and iPod touch product lines
The iPod nano and iPod touch lines have now been refreshed. The iPod nano will now have built in sensors to make the fitness experience even better. You won't need any additional adapters or software. Icons are also a bit bigger to make navigation easier. It'll come in seven different colors and you can choose between an 8GB capacity ($129) and a 16GB capacity ($149). It will even have 12 new watch faces -- including Mickey Mouse -- for those who want to strap it to their wrists!
The iPod touch line will also see the addition of a white model. The models will remain the same capacity wise - 8, 32, and 64GB with the following price points -
- 8GB iPod Touch - $199
- 32 GB iPod Touch - $299
- 64 GB iPod Touch - $399
It doesn't appear there are any internal changes to the iPod Touch. The main change Apple seems to be highlighting is iOS 5, which will be a free update on October 12. Since there's no AirPlay Mirroring and no Siri, that probably means there's not even an Apple A5 chip in there!
So for iPod touch, Apple lowered prices instead of bumping features to maintain price point. Interesting.
Did you expect more of a change to the iPod touch line?
