New iPods, Love them!

Apple has unveiled a new line of iPod's, including a long awaited touch-screen iPod and the new look nano. Added to the bunch is ability to buy music via iTunes directly from the device.

Touch-screen iPod, iPod Touch features the same 3.5-inch, touch-screen display as the iPhone, on which light finger touches allow the user to scroll through menus and resize pictures with two fingers.
You get all of the lovely multi-touch goodness that the iPhone provides, so you can swipe, flick and flip through your music, videos, pictures and podcasts to your heart's content. The display is 3.5in wide, 320 x 240 and is of course perfect for Cover Flow.The iPod Touch includes the Safari Web browser, with Google and Yahoo search engines and easy access to YouTube videos. Basically a iPhone without a chain attached to AT&T.
The iPod Touch is 8mm thick, and can store photos, music, videos and other digital data. It is priced at $299 and will be available in Australia later this month. A 16GB model will go on sale for $399.

The iPod nano now features a 2.0-inch display that features the same resolution as the previous-generation full-sized iPod: 320 x 240 pixels. "We've achieved this with a screen with the highest pixel density we've ever shipped: 204ppi," explained Jobs. "And the screen is just gorgeous. We you see it you're going to really love it."

Jobs demonstrated the iPod nano playing video by watching an episode of The Daily Show featuring John Hodgman, the actor who appears as the PC in the US versions of Apple's "Mac and PC" television ads.
Jobs said the new iPod nano provides 24 hours of audio and five hours of video playback on a single battery charge. The redesigned iPod nano comes in two versions - a 4GB version in silver, for $149, and 8GB version in colours, for $199.
