Apple releases new iPod touch 16GB without rear camera for $229

iPod touch 16gb no camera

Apple has released an addition to the iPod touch lineup, bringing in a 16GB fifth-generation unit which lacks the 5-megapixel rear camera found on the 32GB and 64GB variants. The new model replaces the fourth-generation iPod touch, which sold for $199 for the 16GB model (which did have a rear camera.) Apple has now discontinued that model altogether. Besides missing the rear camera, the 16GB fifth-generation iPod touch also does away with the Loop wrist strap. That makes sense, since the wrist strap was mainly used alongside the camera. You can pick up the new stripped-down 16GB iPod touch for $229.
