Today Apple introduced the new iPod touch featuring Apple's multi-touch user interface and WiFi.
The iPod touch comes with the same user interface as the Apple iPhone and even features the Safari web browser.
"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."Additionally Apple announced the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, which lets you buy songs on the go on the iPod touch.
Apple also announced an exclusive agreement with Starbucks today 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.
Other features of the new iPod touch include a 3.5 inch screen, cover flow, 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).
