Apple introduces new iPod touch 2nd generation
Apple has introduced the second generation iPod touch featuring a new thin contoured metal design, a 3.5-inch widescreen glass display, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi wireless networking, integrated volume control buttons, a built-in speaker for casual listening, a built-in accelerometer and other advanced sensors.

The device also comes with Apple’s Multi-Touch user interface.

iPod touch, now available for US$229 for the 8GB model, aloows users to play music, movies and games, with millions of songs, thousands of Hollywood movies and hundreds of games available on the iTunes Store.

The new iPod touch is smaller and lighter than the original, with a sleek new design that features a contoured metal enclosure. With its rounded edges, flush display and curved, more compact design, the new iPod touch is more comfortable to hold.

iPod touch users can choose from hundreds of game titles such as “Spore Origins” and “Scrabble” from Electronic Arts, and “Real Football 2009” from Gameloft available on iTunes or directly through the App Store application on the iPod touch.

The App Store works over Wi-Fi, enabling users to browse, purchase and wirelessly download applications directly onto their iPod touch and start using them instantly. The App Store features an array of applications in a wide variety of categories, including games, travel, entertainment, social networking, sports and much more.

iPod touch works seamlessly with iTunes so users can import, manage, and then auto-sync their favorite content.

The device offers up to 36 hours of music playback or six hours of video playback on a single charge. The 32GB model holds up to 7,000 songs, 25,000 photos or 40 hours of video; the 16GB model holds up to 3,500 songs, 20,000 photos or 20 hours of video, and the 8GB model holds up to 1,750 songs, 10,000 photos and 10 hours of video.

The new iPod touch works with the new iTunes 8 Genius feature, allowing customers to automatically create playlists while on the go. Users can preview the playlist Genius creates, refresh the list to choose different songs and save Genius playlists to enjoy again later.
