Apple unveils new iPod with the launch of the iPhone 5
The new iPod Nano seventh generation has a width of 5.4 millimeters, 38% thinner than the previous model. A 2.5-inch multi-touch screen and comes in seven colors: aluminum, black, purple, green, blue, yellow and red. It has three buttons on its side to raise and lower the volume, and to pause and advance the song.
Obviously the iPod Nano will use the new connector Lightning , and while still having certain features like a FM radio tuner and a pedometer, you now have the ability to communicate via Bluetooth to stream music wirelessly, plus last about 30 hours, six more than the previous model.
Regarding the iPod Touch, the people of Cupertino says that “not only is the most popular music player, but also the ‘player of video games’ most popular’, based on its 150 million players in the Game Center.
The new iPod Touch, which is now in its fifth generation, has a width of only 6.1 mm and weighs 88 grams, with a four-inch screen Retina Display and A5 processor, the same that powers the iPhone 4S now. Its rear camera is 5 megapixels and recorded in 1080. While its front camera for video calls is 720p.
Interestingly, it also has a kind of ‘hook’ (called
resourcefully iPod Touch Loop) to attach a leash and take your iPod Touch hung more securely to the wrist, which would mean that perhaps the future of the device is a hybrid between a gaming platform and a camera for casual use, before dying-like the iPod Classic, if it were to manufacture an ipad Mini.
The iPod Touch will cost $299 for the 32GB model, and $399 for the 64GB model. While the iPod Nano will be priced at U.S. $149 for the 16GB model.
What about the iPod Shuffle? There was no update, and 2 GB version still costs $49.
