New iPods Across the Board
Apple officially announced the new iPod touch, Nano, and Shuffle today. However, any mention of a new iPod Classic was absent.
The new iPod touch comes in both black and white as well as 8GB ($199), 32GB ($299), and 64GB ($399) flavors. The new iPod touch features a retina display and enough horsepower to use all the feature of iOS 5 and can take advantage of iMessage as well.
The new iPod nano comes in seven different colors (silver, red, pink, gold, green, blue, and black) as well as 8GB ($129) and 16GB ($149) capacities. Also, a testament to the Nano-as-a-watch movement, Apple included 16 different clock faces for users to choose from when checking time on the Nano. Also, it comes with a bevy of built-in sensors for fitness tracking and new scrollable touch user-interface.
The new Shuffle comes in 5 colors (silver, pink, gold, green, and blue) and a single 2GB capacity for $49.
It is a sad day for iPod Classic lovers out there. Unless Apple still supports the device after today, it appears to have been phased out with no updates to the large capacity simple MP3 player forthcoming.
