Apple's new iPod Touch: Features and Details

Apple just introduced the new iPod Touch. "The iPod touch is a landmark iPod, ushering in a whole new generation of features based on its revolutionary multi-touch interface and built-in Wi-Fi wireless networking," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "People are going to be amazed at how thin it is and how much it does." It is basically the iPhone without the phone.

Apple iPod Touch features:

  • 3.5 inch touchscreen
  • 8mm thin
  • cover flow library browsing (finger dragging you see on every iPhone commercial)
  • 22 hours of audio playback
  • 5 hours of video playback
  • availability later this month
  • the 8GB iPod touch model is $299 and the 16GB model is $399
  • Apple's multi-touch user interface (same user interface as the Apple iPhone)
  • WiFi internet connection
  • Safari web browser
  • YouTube capable
  • iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, which lets you buy songs on the go on the iPod touch
  • motion sensors that automatically readjust the screen to landscape or portrait mode, depending on how you're holding the device
  • AND an exclusive agreement with Starbucks that allows you to access the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store for free in participating US Starbucks stores starting next month. When you enter a participating Starbucks location, your iPod touch, iPhone, or PC or Mac(R) running iTunes will automatically recognize the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. You can see what song is currently playing or has recently played in the store, and immediately preview, buy and download it over Wi-Fi.
