iPod touch 2G, new inside and out
"Let's Rock" also brings a wave of news for the iPod touch, now more and more similar to its iPhone cousin. The screen remains the same as the old first generation iPod touch, but changes the chassis, now made of a very thin steel.
From the hardware point of view, the buttons for volume control, an external speaker for listening and an integrated Nike + receiver have (later) been added: in this way only the shoe transmitter is needed.
The interface is obviously updated with the App Store and the integrated software to be used with the Nike + iPod kit; new Genius function for automatic playlist creation is added. The battery runtimes declare 36 hours of audio playback and 6 hours of video.
Also in this case, great attention to the environment, with the use of materials without mercury, arsenic or BFR.
The new iPod touch 2G can be purchased directly from the Apple Store, in three different capacities: the 16 GB model costs 279 euros, the 32 GB model 369 euros and the 8 GB model 209 dollars.
