what’s new apple?

As I predicted, Apple did announce a new iPod yesterday. They did not do just that so here is a simple, easy-to-follow list of what’s new with Apple:

  • New iPod: iPod Touch – pretty much an iPhone without the phone. 8GB version for $299, 16GB version for $399. Comes out in a few weeks.
  • iPod upgrade: The iPod Video will now be called iPod Classic and be available in either gray or black. 80GB version will be available for $249 and the 160GB version for $349 (but it is a bit thicker).
  • iPod Nano upgrade: Wow, the new iPod Nano looks sick. The screen is now two inches wide, it plays videos, and the memory has been upgraded. The silver 4GB is going to cost a measly (by Apple’s standards) $149, while the 8GB is priced at $199 and you have the choice of any color you want.
  • New WiFi music store for the new iPod Touch and the iPhone. Now you can buy songs anywhere you have wireless internet.
  • $200 price drop on all iPhones!
  • No more production of 4GB iPhone: no one bought it anyways.
