Apple Updates 5th Generation iPod, Slashes Prices


5th Generation iPod

Earlier today in his Apple keynote, Steve Jobs unveiled the newly updated 5th generation iPod. The unfortunate thing, however, is that a 16x9 widescreen model was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the video iPod sees a capacity bump from 60 GB to 80 GB, along with a reduction in price by $50 each, $249 for the 30 GB model, and $349 for the 80 GB model. Yes, the 30 GB iPod costs the same as the new 8 GB nano. The screens on the new iPods are 60% brighter than that of their predecessors, and there is brightness control to boot. That should make viewing movies and video on these iPods a little easier. Battery life sees an improvement as well, with the 30 GB model enjoying 3.5 hours of video playback (14 hours for music) and the 80 GB version hitting 6.5 hours of video playback (20 hours for music.) Software updates include the ability to play games, better search abilities which allow you to type in your query, along with a better scroll experience. The new iPods are available now.
