Apple today introduced the iPod Touch. It looks remarkable similar to an iPhone, with a large touchscreen, single home button, and built in Wi-Fi. The built in Wi-Fi is what excites me. I have been wanting something like this for a long time, and now I have to find a way to justify the purchase when I already have an iPod nano.
The iPod touch is an unbelievable 8 mm thin, and is priced starting at just $299. It has a 3.5-inch widescreen display, built-in accelerometer that automatically senses when you rotate it into its landscape position, it automatically switches to Cover Flow so you can browse your music collection by album cover artwork with just a flick of a finger. iPod touch also has a built-in ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the display’s brightness. iPod touch features up to 22 hours of audio playback and up to five hours of video playback.
The new iPod touch is scheduled to be available later this month. The 8GB iPod touch model is $299 (US) and the 16GB iPod model is $399 (US).
