Apple introduced three new iPods, refreshed the iPod shuffle, and dropped the price of the iPhone by $200 per model, as detailed in this news story. It also announced new iPod accessories, version 7.4 of iTunes with a 99-cent ringtone creator, and a Starbucks-backed iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store for its portable devices. Apple today offered a $100 Apple Store credit to all early iPhone adopters.

The iPod classic is the sixth-generation hard disk-based iPod, preserving its predecessor’s 2.5” screen size and body footprint, but changing its face material to silver or black metal, upgrading its user interface, and offering 80GB of storage for $249 or 160GB of storage for $349. We have unboxing photos here, a First Look here, and a user interface video here.

The third-generation iPod nano adds a 2” screen with video and game playing features to its super-popular flash memory-based predecessor. A silver version is available for $149 with 4GB of storage, and five colors (red, black, silver, green, and blue) are available in $199 8GB models. We have unboxing photos here, a First Look here, and a user interface video here.

The iPod touch is Apple’s first 3.5” widescreen, multi-touch iPod. Though it preserves some of the wireless (Wi-Fi) functionality and interface of the iPhone, it strips the cell phone, built-in speakers, camera, and microphone, and Bluetooth features out, losing .2” of height, and loses several features such as e-mail and text messaging in the process. It is the first iPod with Safari web browser functionality, but does not currently support iPod games like the new iPod nano and classic models. We have a First Look here, and a user interface video here.

Apple also refreshed last year’s iPod shuffle with four new colors, preserving the original silver model and last year’s $79, 1GB pricing. We have unboxing photos here, and additional color comparisons with last year’s shuffles here.

We’ve also posted an editorial on the new Apple announcements, reflecting our mixed feelings, and a Ten Things You Want to Know article about the new iPods. Much more is coming very soon.

Looks like an iPhone for me now, and a 160GB(!) iPod Classic for me at Christmas time. Fairly disappointed that there’s no hardrive version of the touch as there’s basically no difference for me between 8GBs and 16GBs.

Well, a tough choice here.  Do I go with gobs of capacity for… well a dated iPod design or a super sexy media machine that can’t really hold much in the way of media?  I think I’ll go iPodless for a 2nd year now.

To the person above:

I actually think the new Classics are much better than the 5Gs!! The user interface is AWESOME! And the shell is slightly different being metal and all.

Why go ‘iPod-less’ when you can get a brilliant 80GB Classic for a fairly cheap price (compared to the cost of the first 5Gs)

I would like to know if I can access files (songs, photos and videos) from my Western Digital My Book World edition on the ipod touch? I can currently access those files from my Macbook but it would be even more critical to be able to do this with an ipod touch considering its’ small storage space. It sure would make this worth owning if you could get whatever files you wanted while on the go from you home storage drive.

Does the new ipod touch have a “notes” option? One of the things that will decide if I get the new one is if I can type in notes and have them transfered over to my mac or vice versa. Will there be software available? Or will my only option be to have an internet connection and do it somewhere like Google or Yahoo.
