New iPod Touches

  • New storage sizes, new price points (8GB for $199, 32GB for $299 and 64GB for $399).  There is NO 16GB model.
  • 8GB model is pretty much the same as previous.
  • 32GB and 64GB models have new internals (50% faster) including support for OpenGL|ES 2.0.  This is probably more inline with the 3GS speed upgrade.
  • 32GB and 64GB models have new headphones with remote and microphone.  The bigger models also have voice control.
  • Same form factor as before.
  • NO Cameras on iPod Touches.  Unfortunately this was widely rumored but proved to be a no show at the event.
