Apple has announced the launch of their new 16GB iPod touch via press release. The new 16GB iPod touch is now available for $199 and comes in multiple colors that include pink, yellow, blue, silver and space gray. It features a 5-megapixel iSight rear camera and A5 chip, but the loop wrist strap is not included so you will have to buy that separately.
The new 16GB iPod touch can be purchased through Apples Online Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. As of right now the new device is only available in the U.S. but will be available worldwide in a few days, according to press release.
With the launch of the new iPod touch Apple has decided to discontinue the $229 16GB iPod touch, which did not come with a camera. Prices have also been slashed on other devices, the 32GB iPod touch price has dropped from $299 to $249 and the 64GB dropped from $399 to $299.
