Apple quietly unveiled 16BG variant of its popular device, iPod Touch for $229 on its online store. When the 5th generation device was released last year, it was only the 32GB and 64GB models. The 4th gen device was available with 16GB and 32GB.
The new model released still features the same 6.1mm sleek body, with the 4 inch Retina Display. Even the internals are the same except the rear camera. Yes, the 5MP iSight camera misses out. This has allowed Apple to reduce the price of this device considerably. With the increased no. of budget Android phones in the market, sales of this popular PMP has been going down. With this year’s WWDC right around the corner, this move by Apple really was a surprise! Looks like Apple wants to target this device for gamer’s and music lovers. Below you can check the video of this newly released device.
Briefing on the components retained in this device are the Dual core A5 chip, FaceTime HD camera with 1.2MP photos and HD video (720p) and the Apple Earpods. Currently this device is available only in the US Apple Stores. Should be available soon enough in other stores too.
