iPod Photo Details
Continuing on with the Apple news for the day, here is the skinny on the new iPod Photo:
The unit has a 65,000 color screen with 220 by 176 pixel resolution. The battery life has been bumped up to 15 hours per charge (so why can't the black and white iPod have more than 12 hours?), and iTunes will import album art for display purposes, and will also be responsible for synching photos to the iPod. Supported applications for image management are iPhoto (for Mac users) and Adobe Photohop Elements or Album on the PC side. As for iTunes, in order to synch your pictures you will need to download the new version 4.7.
The cost of the iPod Photo will be $500 for the 40 GB model and $600 for the 60 GB. I am sure they will be popping up on the free stuff sites soon enough. If you can't wait for that, Apple is scheduled to begin shipping the new iPod's within the next two weeks.
One of the nicer features of the iPod Photo is that the dock has an S-Video out (along with regular video) that can be used to play slideshows (with or without music) on any television. In fact, if you are using a widescreen display, the iPod will adjust the photos automatically for that aspect ratio!
