With sales of the iPod (and all standalone portable digital music players) in freefall, I’ve often wondered how much longer Apple will want to continue in this space. The answer seems to be “a little bit longer.”
Today the company announced some updates to the iPod Touch line. For $219, you can now get a 16GB version in your choice of colours (pink, yellow, blue, silver, space grey and (PRODUCT) RED) with a 5 megapixel camera that also does 1080p HD video recording and a front-facing Facetime camera.
If 16GB isn’t enough, you can have a 32GB model for $269 or a 64GB version for $319.
All of them will be available in Canada in the coming days.
