Yesterday we wrote that Apple launched a new “stripped-down” fifth-generation iPod Touch, replacing the fourth-generation iPod touch. Now Apple’s retail stores began carrying the device today. Australian Ben Pasternak was one of the first to purchase the new iPod touch, and he has posted a brief video overview of it. The new iPod Touch carries a black front and silver back, lacking the rear camera and support for Apple’s Loop wrist strap and is available in 16GB only.
The new 16 GB iPod touch is priced at $229, compared to $299/$399 for the 32/64 GB models. iLounge has also posted some photos of the new iPod touch.
