New Cheaper, Faster, Bigger, Video Recording iPods

The new iPod Touch will run Open GL ES 2.0, the same as the iPhone 3GS. It'll be twice as fast, with a catch. The 8GB one that will now sell for $199 will be running the same old processor. The new 32 and 64 GB Touches will be running Open GL ES 2.0. So the 8 GB model stays the same with a price drop, other get an upgrade.

The iPod Classic will receive an upgrade. The $250 125 GB iPod Classic will now be upgraded to 160 GB for the same price.

The list of headphones available for the Shuffle will be updated to include Dr. Dre's Beats headphones (for anyone not broke after buying a new iPod, obviously).

The iPod Shuffle will come in some new colors and will receive a price drop, 2 GB for $59, 4 GB for $79. A special edition 4 GB model with polished steel will also be available for $99.

New iPod Nano will be priced at $149 for 8 GB and $179 for 16 GB. They'll have cameras for recording video. From what it looks like, it won't take pictures, which is weird. Here's details on the video recording:
  • H.264 VGA video, 640 x 480 pixels, up to 30 frames per second with AAC audio
  • 15 real-time special effects: Sepia, Black and White, X-Ray, Film Grain, Thermal, Security Cam, Cyborg, Bulge, Kaleido, Motion Blur, Mirror, Light Tunnel, Dent, Stretch, and Twirl
It'll also pack a built-in speaker for playback audio. Yep, that means you can record audio as well. The colors look even better as they are "polished anodized aluminum."

Two added features are the voice recorder and a pedometer with Nike + built in. The new iPod Nano's will be available today. It will also have genius mix enabled and FM radio. [Gizmodo]
