Apple to Update iPod touch

We’re now just about halfway through 2014 and Apple has yet to launch any new products. The company has refreshed or even relaunched several existing devices such as the iPhone 5c, fourth-generation iPad, MacBook Air and iMac, and the trend will reportedly continue next week when Apple attempts to breathe new life into its iPod touch  lineup.

According to two independent reports, Apple has plans to launch a new lower-cost version of its iPod touch handheld device next week. The move is likely an effort to boost sales, which continued to slip over the past few years as customers continue to opt for smartphones and tablets.

MacRumors cited a single unnamed source in stating that the new iPod touch model will be a 16GB version of Apple’s current iPod touch, and it will be made available for $199. The device will supposedly sport all of the features found on Apple’s larger capacity models, including six color choices and a rear camera; Apple had previously launched a $229 iPod touch that lacked color options and a rear camera.

Separately, French-language blog iGeneration reported many of the same details, though it added that the new iPod touch model will launch on Tuesday of next week.

UPDATE: It looks like the wait was far shorter than expected — Apple just launched its new cheaper iPod touch. Here’s the full press release:

Apple Brings Vibrant Colors & iSight Camera to Most Affordable iPod touch Model

iPod touch Lineup Now Starting at $199

CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apple® today announced its 16GB iPod touch® is now available in vibrant colors and equipped with a 5 megapixel iSight® camera for just $199.

Plenty of rumors have pointed to two new iPhone sizes this year — 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches — but only the 4.7-inch model of the next-generation iPhone 6 has been substantiated with blueprints, schematics, dummy models, and cases, all of which match and fit each other perfectly. We have little reason to believe Apple will also launch a 5.5-inch iPhone this year, but many continue reporting the rumor anyway.  If you think Apple will actually release an iPhone larger than th ...

Review: Opera Mini 8 for iPhone and iPad still isn’t there

N
I’ve wanted to like Opera Mini, I really have. I’m a longtime big fan of Opera’s Web browser for OS X, so it seemed a fairly logical leap that their iOS browser offering would appeal, too. It didn’t. I didn’t like the user interface aesthetics or the way it worked, and it wasn’t especially speedy. Worst of all, Opera mini’s support of cut/copy/paste was even worse than the iOS norm, which is at best pretty mediocre ...
