At its publicized event on Sep 9th, Apple introduced several new pieces of hardware, including new iPod nanos and a revamped iPod touch. The iPod nanos in particular received a wealth of changes, including an updated interface, a thinner casing, and an accelerometer that allows for functions such as shaking for shuffle play and rotating for Cover Flow.
The new iPod touch, dubbed "the funnest iPod ever" by Steve Jobs, has also received a cosmetic makeover, making it look a little less like an iPhone:
The new iPod touch is smaller and lighter than the original, with a sleek new design that features a contoured metal enclosure with integrated volume control buttons and a brilliant 3.5-inch widescreen glass display. With its rounded edges, flush display and curved, more compact design, the new iPod touch is more comfortable to hold and more portable than ever.It also boasts a longer battery life, and has access to hundreds of programs from the App Store. Interestingly enough, Apple is placing a particular emphasis on the gaming aspect of the iPod touch, including a features page touting the iPod touch's accelerometer/touch screen control scheme in relation to gaming.
Pricing for the iPod nano starts at $149 for the 8GB, and $199 for the 16GB. The iPod touch goes for $229 for the 8GB, $299 for the 16GB, and $399 for the hefty 32GB.
