There’s little doubt that you knew about all of these products already, and it’s no real help that we are posting about them an entire day late. I was just so ecstatic all day that I was unable to type up a news post. Really. Our friends at TheTechLounge have posted a report of all that’s new, including new iPods, Ringtones, more iPods, Starbucks partnership and more.
Big fan of the iPhone but are too cheap to afford one? You’ll be happy to know that one of the announcements was the price drop for the 8GB model: $399. Yes, the phones only been out for a few months but it has already dropped $200. You almost have to feel bad for the early adopters. Of most interest to me personally is the iPod Touch, an 8GB/16GB iPhone-type device… without the phone capabilities. It’s smaller than the iPhone, naturally, but includes the same great screen. Overall a great showing.
Finally, the iPod touch. The iPhone minus the phone. People have been asking for one ever since they laid eyes on the iPhone (Ed – I wanted one ever since I first heard rumors of one, long before the iPhone). And Steve really delivered this time. The iPod touch’s screen and device dimensions are nearly identical to the phone, except that it’s only 8mm thick (or thin). The iPhone is 11mm thick.
