Apple iPod Touch 64GB (3rd generation)

Not much doing here in Touch-land. A new 64GB model, no 16GB unit and price cuts for everyone! Oh, and a bit more performance.

Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.


There's very little to report here, which is why we're tempted to keep the "2nd generation" tag for the latest iPod Touch even though it's technically the third iteration. At the much hyped 9/9/09 Apple keynote speech, Steve Jobs announced one new variant for the iPod Touch, a 64GB version, and the death of another model, the 16GB unit. The 32GB is priced the same as last year's 32GB model, the entry-level 8GB limbos in at AU$269 and the 32GB is now AU$399.

Feature-wise, the Touch is pretty much the same as before: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, accelerometer and a 3.5-inch multi-touch touchscreen. Both the 32GB and 64GB models now pack faster internals, which is similar if not the same to the recently released iPhone 3GS, and boosting its 3D performance they are now capable of OpenGL ES 2.0. All new models come shipped with OS 3.1 and seeing as there's no official announcement, we'll assume the ability to use the Touch as an external hard drive is still off the cards.


The new Touch is available now.

From M.

Those ipod haters, your a VERY small percentage & no one cares what you think.
@ M. and the like minded.

Blind ignorance is abounding, quantity does not equate to quality you need to experience quality to know what it is as I am sure you do not. If Ipods where the best than there would be no other so popularity in this case equates to sheep mentality and or different wants, uses, affordability and good marketing as Ipods cannot stand on quality alone.

So M. being in a COMMON majority is not necessary a good thing and you not caring what I think LIKE I CARE as your words are ever so insignificant to me and the like minded that appreciates quality. LOL

That's fine. If you can't even spell, then you're not someone whose opinion I value.
