Apple: New Versions For Every iPod
 
 

Today at the Apple Media Event, Steve Jobs announced three new iPods. Every single model of iPod will see an update. First off, the iPod Shuffle now has buttons and will be smaller than the 2nd generation. It packs the traditional clip and also supports genius mixes and VoiceOver to tell you the song, artist, battery level and more. 15 hours of battery life are promised. It'll sell in 5 colors for $49 (2 GB).

Next, the new iPod nano. It has a color, multitouch touchscreen and otherwise looks like a second-generation iPod shuffle. There's a clip on the back as well. This new nano is 46% smaller and 42% lighter. It has a 24 hour audio battery life, physical volume buttons, VoiceOver support, an FM radio and a pedometer. Voice memos are also supported, as is Genius, shuffle and repeat. It will come in six colors and cost $149 for the 8 GB and $179 for 16 GB.

Last, we've got the new iPod touch. The platform that outsells Nintendo and Sony portable players combined is getting better. Jobs announced that the touch has over 50% of the US and worldwide portable game device share. The new edition is even thinner, with a Retina Display, the 1 GHz A4 processor and a 3-axis gyroscope. There's a front-facing camera for FaceTime and a rear-camera for HD recording. It'll have 40 hours of audio on the battery, and the ability to edit video with iMovie. The 8 GB will cost $229, the 32 GB will cost $299 and the 64 GB will cost $399.

All of these new iPods will be available next week, and up for pre-order today.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
