Steve Jobs has just announced an overhaul of the iPod range, with new iPod nanos, iPod classics, and iPod touches.
Here’s a quick overview of the new designs.
Available in nine colours (including a (PRODUCT) RED charity version), and either 8GB or 16GB storage capacity, the new design features curved aluminium and glass, and a built in accelerometer which allows you to flip viewing orientation, and even shake the device to shuffle music tracks.
It measures 3.6 x 1.5 x 0.24 inches, has a two-inch diagonal colour LCD with LED backlight (320 x 240 resolution), and offers up to 24 hours of music playback or four hours of video playback on a single charge.

Read on for the iPod classic and iPod touch.
The new iPod classic has a whopping 120GB of storage, comes in either silver or black, and is constructed from anodised aluminium and polished stainless steel with rounded edges.
It measures 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.41 inches, has a 2.5-inch colour LCD with LED backlight (320 x 240 resolution), and up to 36 hours of music and six hours of video playback.
The second generation iPod touch is thinner than its predecessor, and now comes with up to 32GB capacity.
Apple says it’s the “funnest” iPod ever, partly because it comes with built in App Store and Nike+ support.
It features a contoured, polished stainless steel design, and same 3.5-inch widescreen display.
It offers the same music and video battery life as the iPod classic, though applications are bound to drain the battery at variable rates.
8GB £169 16GB £219 32GB £279
All new iPods feature the “Genius” functionality built in to iTunes 8, which recommends and creates song playlists based on your library and tracks in the iTunes store.
