Our first look at the 16GB fifth-gen iPod touch

We’ve got our hands on the new, stripped-down $229 16GB iPod touch. The new edition lacks the rear iSight camera and loop wrist strap found on the 32GB and 64GB models.

We have pictures of the new device and our initial thoughts in our original fifth-generation iPod touch review. A full review of the new edition will be posted early next week.

  1. I keep thinking that this story is a spoof, that there is no such thing as a new iPod Touch. I figure that if I look closely enough at these stories, I’m going to see a byline from The Onion or Saturday Night Live. I keep checking the calendar to see if it’s April 1, April Fool’s Day somewhere.

    Or, I’m going to discover a Samsung label on it! Or, wake up from a funny dream and discover it really didn’t happen!

    It makes little sense, very little sense. The price break isn’t big enough, dropping the camera loses a key part of its appeal, and it hurts the Apple brand itself.

    Could this be a trial balloon to see if the market would accept a low-cost iPhone without a camera? If that’s the case, or even if it isn’t, Tim Cook has made a major blunder on this– and I’m usually a defender of his from all the detractors!
