New iPod launched!

So, this’ll probably be the next model I get. My current iPod is stuttering occasionally, and will probably have to be replaced before too long.

From engadget.com, the latest news:

New iPod announced! The new iPod, as speculated, features video capabilities and the wider display, but it’s still a music-first device.

The device will feature a 2.5-inch display, QVGA resolution (320 x 240), and will MPEG-4 h.264 (natch), and presumably Quicktime.

The new iPod will be 30% thinner than the current 20GB iPod (making it 0.44-inches thick—say wha?), and will feature a 60GB version (which should be thinner than the current 0.63-inch thick 20GB iPod), and editions of both in black.

The 20GB should go for $299, and the 60GB for $399. They’ll be shipping next week.

What’s the device named, you ask? The iPod. That’s it, just The iPod. Well spare you the Prince jokes. The iPod will have TV out.

Stevie has iTunes 6.0 up there—only about a month after introducing iTunes 5.0.

iTunes 6.0 will also feature video and the iTunes Music Store will feature video downloads (big surprise, right?)—at launch over 2,000 music videos will be made available at a cost of $1.99 apiece.

  1. o that’s just what someone said to me at apple’s launch last week. admittedly, it probably sounds funnier when it’s said in thick a brummie accent but it made me chuckle.

    (fyi: piss is gayer than kd lang but not as gay as john travolta.)

  2. Yeah, I think this is getting a little out of hand.

    I’m not that down with ‘censorship’ but I feel I may have to exert a little editorial control.

    As to the video ipod, I think it’s quite good… but I still feel that the PlayStation Portable would be a better choice. It has a much more impressive screen, and can play the new Grand Theft Auto game!
