Apple has announced that its iPod touch range has been revamped, and the wifi-enabled device will be getting a new 5MP iSight camera.
This means the touch will be capable of 1080p HD video recording, have a 4-inch Retina display, and a FaceTime camera. The move brings the touch range further inline with the iPhone; most of its differences are now circled around the touch’s thinner, curvier design, while the iPhone, of course, can make phone calls.
The new range will be pre-loaded with iOS 7, but will support the next version of the operating system, iOS 8, in the fall.
The iPod touch is also now available in a variety of colors including pink, yellow, blue, silver, space gray, and red. The new touch has been put on sale in the US immediately, while worldwide availability will be “in the coming days,” according to an Apple release.
Pricing will start at $199 for 16GB, with 32GB and 64GB versions available for $249 and $299, respectively.
