Apple revamped its iPod range recently, highlighted by a new version of the iPod Nano with a curved aluminum design and built-in accelerometer. Besides the Nano, Apple also introduced a single iPod classic model and changes to the iPod Touch.
During a press briefing in San Francisco Sept. 9, Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced the new iPod Nano, which is touted as the thinnest iPod ever built and features a taller form factor with a larger screen than the previous Nano.
Jobs said that the newly redesigned iPod Nano as more environmentally friendly than past models, because it has arsenic-free glass; no brominated flame retardant, mercury or PVC; and more recyclable materials. There’s more they’re going to do in the future, but these are the cleanest, toxic-free iPods they’ve ever built.
The revamped Nano line comes in different colors, like, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, pink and silver. The 8GB Nano sells for $149 while the 16GB model sells for $199; both Nanos are now shipping.
Apple also introduced the iPod classic line to just one model , a 120GB music player that costs $249. Previously, the classic line came in two versions, a $249 80GB model and a $349 160GB model.
