Apple's new iPod touch 5 makes the already nearly 2-dimensional iPhone 5 look thick by comparison, but we knew that already. Now that they've finally hit stores in all their multi-colored, looped up glory, we can finally get a good look at everything else.
In addition to Darth Vader black and Storm Trooper White, I picked up an Imperial Guard red and Leanna got a Max Rebo blue. (I'm still waiting on my Yoda green nano!) They all look great, at least fresh out of the package. The loop is the only slight let down. It's leathery, which is nice, but thin and, at least to my eyes, not very Apple-like. Something like the old iPod lanyard might have been a better choice.
We'll be back soon with a full review, but in the meantime, here's the unboxing and the hardware tour.
