Apple has launched a new iPod touch today on its online stores. The new 16GB iPod touch is identical to 32GB and 64GB models and has a rear iSight camera as well. The entry level 16GB fifth-gen iPod is priced at $199 and is available in six different colours. However, the $9 loop accessory which is not a pre-requisite is not bundled with the iPod; it can be purchased separately. Nevertheless, the features available on the 16GB model are the same as on the 32GB and 64GB models.
There is also a considerable reduction in the price of current 32 and 64GB iPod touch. The 32GB model is available for $249 (down from previous $299) and the 64GB iPod touch is available for $299 (down from previous $399).
Previously, 16GB iPod touch was available only in silver colour for $229 and had front camera only. Apple released a Press Release announcing the new product, calling it the “Most Affordable iPod touch Model.”
