Video iPod and new iTunes

Apple, after much anticipation, released the video iPod at their “one More Thing…” event in San Jose today.

The new model is 30 percent thinner than previous models, has a larger 2.5-inch QVGA display with 324 x 240 resolution, at 30fps, 260,000 color 2.5-inch display, H.264 support, and either a 30 or 60GB hard drive allowing up to 150 hours of video.

Video iPod

A new version of iTunes (version 6) has been released to con-incide with this launch. iTunes 6 will allow download of music videos, and tv shows (like Desperate housewives and Lost! – you hated them on TV – you can now hate them even more on your video iPod!).

The new iTunes also has built in functionality for:

  • Buying videos
  • Buying songs for friends
  • Reviews and
  • Recommendations based on previous purchases

Videos will cost $1.99 each.

  1. I liked your con-incide comment, but maybe you could elaborate…?!

    Funny, Richie was just saying to me the other day that he believes Apple are very clever (if devious) by releasing a product and then adding feature after feature to ‘new’ products which with a little effort could have been released on the first product, thus ‘creating’ a market for the latest gadget.

    I assume this is what you’re getting at but I’m not 100% sure… 🙂

    Works too. If it didn’t rankle with me a bit that they do this, and if I had a large disposable income I would be buying one!

  2. I just got my 2000t and all of my songs are skipping in iTunes, and I cant figure out why. If someone could help me out and tell me how to fix this I would really appreciate it because its driving me crazy. Thanks for the replys.
