I speak of the fifth generation iPod touch. I don’t know about you, but that picture is making me drool just a little bit.
It’s been a while since Apple updated the iPod touch range. Two years, to be precise. This latest chap - the iPod touch fifth gen - doesn’t disappoint. Essentially you’re looking at an iPhone 5 without the phone stuff. Sort of.
iPod touch fifth gen specs include a 4in Retina display (1136 x 640), dual-core A5 processor (same as the iPhone 4S), 5MP rear iSight camera, 1080p video recording, Siri, and all the shiny new features of iOS 6 – including Maps, Shared Photo Streams, and, er, Passbook.
Apple also unveiled the all-new EarPods, promising that they “sound unlike anything you’ve ever heard.” We’ll believe that when we hear it.
I can’t see Apple specifically naming the colours (heck, you can see them above anyways). There’s also an exclusive red edition online, with “a portion of the purchase” going towards the fight against AIDS in Africa. Nice one.
This iPod touch fifth gen spec page suggests it’ll only be available in 32 and 64GB flavours. For serious? No 16GB? And still no sign of the elusive 128GB model, bah. Pricing starts at £249.
Fifth gen iPod touch pre-orders open on September 14 (same as the iPhone 5), with release following in October.
Oh, and the iPod touch fourth gen is down to £169 for the 16GB model, and £199 for 32GB.
