Apple's new sexy iPod Touch with Wi-Fi

Today Apple CEO, Steve Jobs unveiled the new “iPod Touch” which has many of the same features as the iPhone…with the exception of making or receiving calls. Another good news for all iPhone fans is Apple will discontinue one of the two models sold since late June and the remaining version, with 8 gigabytes of storage, will now sell for only $399, or $200 less than before.

The Touch iPod has a 3.5” widescreen and carries WiFi, giving the consumer the ability to surf the net using Safari and with the same scroll, flip and zoom in/out feature as the iPhone. There are two models of the iPod Touch, an 8GB for $299 and a 16GB for $399. The newest version of the iPod Nano has been introduced with a 2” color video screen

YouTube videos can be watched on the iPod Touch with the exception of being 8mm thick, the device looks just like the iPhone. Users will be able to download content from the iTunes store that can be imported to your computer.

A new version of the Classic comes with a full metal design and is thinner than its predecessor. A $249 version has 80 gigabytes of storage and 30 hours of audio. A slightly thicker model features 160 gigabytes of storage and will retail for $349. Jobs also pointed out that the new iPod could hold 40,000 songs in comparison to 1,000 on the original iPod.

Jobs also announced a new venture with Starbucks whereby iPod Touch users who visit one of the coffee house's outlets will be download any song playing directly to their music player. They can also retrieve a list of the last 10 songs that the Starbucks store played.
