Cool New iPods Released

apple has completely revamped its ipod line up with introducing new shuffle (just Colours), new Nano (with video and coverflow and a wider 2 inch screen and new UI), new iPod Classic( wioth new ui, coverflow and 160 Gb hard disk and full metal body) and ipod touch(Exact like the iphone only way thinner and only 16Gb hard disk). check it out at Apple
and a sad part is they have DROPPED the iphone prices to 399 for 8Gb and are killing the 4Gb but till its available 4 Gb for 299.

Man, that ipod touch looks sweet! But how come its restricted to the smaller storage capacities?

On the other hand, a whopping 160 GB for the ipod classic rocks. I gotta get my hands on one of those.

Ha ! So Apple caught you. How do you feel with 2 GBs today. At least I would feel like I wasted so much 2 yrs back. You'll feel the same way after 2 yrs ! The same thing which we find hot today loses its charm ! How sad !!!

I will have to get that 160GB for myself. The touch is sweet but only wish it was a minimum of 30GB or 80GB

@ GTO: The small capacity of the touch is due the fact that it is using a SSD (Solid State Disc) like the SD and MM Cards which are coming only in small capacities currently. :(

Just wait for another 6 months and you will get better storage capacity.

Within a few months the iPhone prices have been slashed by $200.

I dont think they will be coming with a better storage in ipod touch model until the flash memory becomes really really cheap. Guy what do you think is a better bargain : Iphone (cracked ) which is not 200$ cheaper or the new ipod?

I will wait. MIcrosofts Zune refresh is about to be released and so is creatives refresh up on the cards.

Though apple is the leader a major price revision cant be sidelined. It somehow gets better and better at apple these days.
