So Apple redid the iPod line-up yesterday:

  • iPod touch – Basically an iPhone without the phone. It’s got the WiFi browser and you’ll now be able to buy directly from the iTunes store from the phone.
  • iPod Nano – Totally new shape to accommodate a new larger screen so you can watch movies and video! Available in 4 or 8 GB sizes.
  • Classic iPod – The same but up to 160 GB of music a video (also in 80 GB).
  • iPhone – Price dropped $200 and only the 8 GB model is available now. And you can buy ringtones and songs via WiFi. I’d expect at 16 GB model soon…

    You can use the WiFi free at Starbucks, but I’m not sure if that’s for surfing or just buying music. You can also see a “now Playing” list at Starbucks and easily purchase any of the last ten songs. If it’d update my podcasts via WiFi or if the had a 160 GB iTouch I’d really be tempted…

    Please note – Some of the features and items aren’t ready yet, but I think all are supposed to be by the end of the month.

    ArstechnicatestedWhile the previous What’s Inside an iPod Nano ?!? examination was more of a vivisection, these folks at ARS Technica took to a new level in a stress test (followed by a dissection). They didn’t expect the patient to live so they had to keep upping the ante of their test. Just so you know, dropping your iPod Nano while you bicycle may not cause any problems at all. Actually, there’s a chance it’ll survive being dropped while your driving the car (at 50 MPH). Don’t worry about running it over, okay, maybe you should worry about running it over, but it doesn’t mean the music will stop playing! (The good stuff starts on page 3)

    So yesterday Apple released the iPod Nano. You’d think with the other stuff going on I would have realized there was just one more thing…

    The iPod Nano has 2GB and 4GB models, color screen, click wheel, thin as a pencil (3.5 x 1.6 x 0.27 inches and 1.5 ounces) and I think it’s all solid state (no hard drive) so it doesn’t skip and that should help the battery life too. It’ll hold up to 1,000 songs or 25,000 photos (4GB version) and it comes in black or white. The more I look the more I like. My question is how small can they keep them this size but still get them up to 80 (or 100) GB?

    I’m sorry that I’m such an Apple geek, I just think they make really stuff (I’m not really sorry). And with the iPods everyone (even Windows people) can benefit from it. I’m sure these work as external storage devices too. Photo/diagram in the extended entry.
