New Ipods

What is it about Apple that every time they do something cool, I feel like I HAVE to blog about it??

Well, I don’t know, but I do know that these new iPods that were just announced are HOT

Here’s the link from Ars Technica

They basically redid the whole line of iPods. They’re going with 4 models now, the Shuffle, a new version of the Nano, the iPod Classic, and the new iPod Touch

The Shuffle
is the same you’ve seen, the small matchbox size player with a clip on it, but now comes in 5 colors: White, Light blue, sea green, purple, and the new Red that goes to fund the fight against AIDS. All are 1 GB in size, and $79 each.

The new Nanos come in the same selection of colors (replacing the purple with the classic black) but are no longer the thin models you’re used to. The new player is more square in shape, built to accomodate the 2.5 inch screen. Why does a Nano need a screen that size? Because it now does video. Pretty sweet. 4 and 8GB models, priced at $149 and $199, respectively.

The iPod classic is essentially the 5th gen iPod (video model) with a beefed up storage capacity, the cover flow feature added to the player, and a sleeker, all metal design. Comes in white and black. 80 GB is $249, and the whopping 160 GB is $349

Finally, the coup de grace, the new iPod Touch. This is what all of us who loved the iPhone’s player capabilities but were disappointed with the phone features were waiting for. Because, essentially, that’s what you have here. An iPhone without the crappy phone part. Full touch screen interface, cover flow, calendar, contacts list, and a built in Safari web browser!! Yep, bring this bad boy in range of some Wi-Fi and you’re able to browse the net and preview/buy songs directly off iTunes!! And it’s less than 8mm thin. Comes in 8 and 16 GB models, priced at $299 and $399 respectively

Check the links for more info, or click here to see them all side by side. These things look sweet. I’m heavily considering buying an iPod Touch. It’s a really awesome looking player.

What do you guys think?
