New iPod Touch

Apple released the new iPod Touch today at their media event. The new iPod Touch matches up with the rumors, now sporting a curved back but retaining the same storage capacities. Features include:

– 2.1 Firmware
– Built-in speaker, volume controls
– Genius playlist
– Nike+iPod support
– Battery: 36 hours for music, 6 hours for video.
– $229 for 8GB, $299 for 16GB, $399 for 32GB

Apple also appears to be positioning the iPod Touch as a gaming device with a new ad that shows off a number of games and calls it the “funnest iPod ever”. Phil Schiller also demonstrated a number of games on stage, including Spore Origins, Real Soccer 2009 and Need for Speed: Undercover.

Spore Origins was released for the iPhone and iPod Touch just yesterday, and a first look gameplay video of Real Soccer 2009 has been posted to

The 2.1 upgrade will be available for free for current iPod Touch owners with Firmware 2.0.
