The Return of the iPod Touch

After two years since the last release, Apple debuts a new and improved iPod Touch. The updated device is brighter, cheaper and available today in the US.

Specifically, the new iPod comes in blue, gray, pink, red, silver and yellow, with a rear-facing camera and high-definition video capabilities.  Plus, all three models (16GB, 32GB, 64GB) are seeing major price cuts. Most significantly, the 64GB model is now available for $100 cheaper.

While all three models are programmed with iOS 7 software, they can be upgraded to iOS 8 this fall. Will you be buying a new iPod?
