Every 2009 iPod, reviewed, photographed + more

For readers who mightn’t have seen the numerous changes taking place live last week, over the weekend, and today, iLounge has posted full reviews of the “late 2009” iPod lineup. Our review of the fifth-generation iPod nano, the text of which was published on Friday, has been updated with a large collection of new photos, as has our third-generation iPod touch review, which was published over the weekend and is now available in two versions—one solely discussing the new model, and one discussing it in the context of the second-generation model. Finally, both our iPod classic and third-generation iPod shuffle reviews have been updated with new pages and photographs focusing on the new models.

In brief summary, our top pick in the late 2009 iPod family is the $199 iPod touch (iLounge Rating: A-), followed by the fifth-generation iPod nano (iLounge Rating: B+) and late 2009 iPod touch (iLounge Rating: B+), then the late 2009 iPod classic (iLounge Rating: B), with the third-generation iPod shuffle (iLounge Rating: C) bringing up the rear. In case you missed them, here are links to reviews, news and articles related to the new lineup and iTunes 9:
