Today kicked off Apple’s “Let’s Rock” event and boy did it rock. They’ve just unveiled three new iPod touch models that are hitting stores today. They’re priced more competitively at $229 for the 8GB, $299 for the 16GB, and $399 for the 32GB, saving you about $50 off of each version.
They’re a bit thinner and the backs are similar to that of the iPhone 3G. There will be built-in speakers, but no mic. That’s not a major issue, because they will work with new Apple headphones that have a microphone on the cord (sold separately for $79).
All of the new models will come with 2.1 firmware, which is releasing soon for anyone who has the current-model iPod Touch. Nike+ is built in, so you just have to buy the transmitter or sensor and you are all set to go!
Oh, and did we mention the new models are more eco-friendly? Yep, they’re constructed with arsenic-free glass and highly-recyclable components. Now, we definitely have to get one.
