Here is a good news about Apple fans, and also for those who love white color. When Apple launched white iPhone, that model too received good response. Now Apple has announced the new iPod touch white model.
The new iPod touch comes with iOS 5 and iCloud. But now you’ve got the choice of color, buy the traditional black model or buy the new white model. The new white model really stands out.
According to Apple, iPod Touch is #1 portable game player. This new model doesn’t include any hardware changes, but it’s the same old hardware under the hood.
Features of the new White iPod touch
- iOS 5 – That’s what this new model is about. iOS 5 is the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, according to Apple. It includes more than 200 new features.
- iMessage: With iMessage, you can message fellow iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch users who are running iOS 5. iMessage on iPod touch works over Wi-Fi, it’s free to use and secure
- Twitter integration: Twitter is integrated into iOS 5. So now there’s more tweeting, while doing your stuff
- Game Center: Purchase new games from within game center, find friends and get game recommendations, meet new opponents, friends and foes. It’s game play time.
- More apps: With more than 5,00,000 apps, now you’ve got the choice that no other platform has got.
- iCloud: iPod Touch works with iCloud – Apple’s free cloud service, so that you can store the data in the cloud and which can work seamlessly with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC. The data stored in the cloud is wirelessly pushed to other devices also. When content changes on any device, all your other devices are updated automatically and wirelessly.
iOS 5 will be available as a free software update for iPod touch (third and fourth generations). So those who are using older generations, need not to that their iDevice are becoming obsolete and out of fashion.
Apple iPod Touch White Pricing
The 8 GB model which previously priced at $299, can now be bought at $199, that’s $30 less. Talking about higher models, their pricing remains the same – $299 for 32 GB and $399 for 64 GB.
The new iPod touch is available from October 12th. Order it from Apple Store (www.apple.com), Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers.
And here’s one question that is asked by many. What is the difference between the White iPod Touch 4g and the old iPod Touch 4g? The only two major differences is that the new model can be purchased in white color also, and it will have iOS 5 pre installed. There is no other technical or physical difference. (Note that 4g means 4th Generation. The new iPod Touch white is also a 4th generation model and not a 5th generation one)
Update: Now you can order this white iPod Touch from Amazon.
