Apple has just confirmed they’ll release the next generation iPod Touch as of next week and it’ll be available today for pre-order. It’s smaller, thinner than the current model, though it doesn’t sport the glass on glass design we expected it to bring, which is featured on the iPhone 4.
New enhancements include:
– Retina Display
– Apple A4 Chip, no clocking mentioned
– 3 Axis Gyro
– iOS 4.1 with Game Center and all the rest of the goodies mentioned here
– Front Facing camera with FaceTime over Wi-Fi
– Back Camera with HD Video recording.. The technical specs section mentions the image resolution to be of 960 x 720 but there’s no word on how many megapixels are supported by the sensor. Let’s hope they just forgot to add this and not have the first confirmation the sensor will suck in comparison to current market standards..
– 40 Hours of battery life
It’ll be available in three models: 8GB for $229, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399. You can pre-order it as of today and get it as of next week. Apple’s iPod Touch site has just been updated, and you can also access the new iTunes 10 service here.
