Apple announces all new 4-inch iPod Touch and 2.5-inch iPod nano

As expected, Apple today unveiled along side the iPhone 5 an all new iPod Touch and iPod nano. The 2012 iPod Touch features a 4-inch Retina Screen, an A5 processor that’s found on the iPhone 4S (Apple says that this chip will provide up to 7x the performance of previous touches), an improved camera that’ll support FaceTime HD (the 5MP iSight camera will shoot 1080p videos), and is only 6.1mm thick and weights 88g, making it the thinnest and lightest Touch ever.

The new iPod Touch will come in 5 different colors and 2 models will be available in October: 32GB for $299 and the 64 GB capacity for $399. Like the iPhone 5, pre-orders can be made starting September 14th.

All New Apple EarPods now available for $29

First leaked a little over a week ago, Apple introduced a set of all new earphones that will replace the iconic white earbuds that ship with all iDevices. Called the “EarPods”, they took 3 years in the making and not only wears more comfortably, but they’re supposed to sound significantly better.

Unlike traditional, circular earbuds, the design of the new Apple EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear. Which makes them more comfortable for more people than any other earbud-style headphone.

The speakers inside Apple EarPods have been engineered to minimize sound loss and maximize sound output. So you get high-quality audio that’s just as impressive as what you’d hear from more expensive headphones.

The EarPods are now available for purchase online for $29 and they’ll also come shipped with the iPhone 5, new iPod Touch and Nano. Check out Apple’s intro video below.
