@darkhorizons Working on the ground at SDCC yesterday... the sun is VASTLY over rated.
At the speed Apple is coming out with new iPods, you have to wonder when you should just hold your purchase and wait a month. Back on September 7th, they announced the iPod Nano, now comes the regular iPods with video playback. White versions in 30GB & 60GB and black versions in 30GB & 60GB flavors.
They both feature 320 x 240 pixel, 2.5-inch, 260,000 color display, 20 hours of battery life, and supports playback of H.264 and MPEG4 at 30 fps. Killer news is they also feture TV Out jacks so you will be able to plug the iPods into your TV for full screen viewing. The killer part is the 30GB version being 31% thinner than the current 20GB iPod and the 60GB versions will be 12% thinner than the 20GB iPod. They are estimated to hold 75 hours of video for the 30GB versions and 150 hours for the 60 GB ones. 30 Giggers will set you back $299 and 60 Giggers will know a coll $399 out of your waller.
So the big question is, what will you play for videos on your new gadget? Well, Apple also released iTunes 6 today that will be selling (currently) 2,000 music videos and episodes of Lost and Desperate Housewives for a $1.99 each.
Next month, iPods that make toast. Mark my words.
