Yesterday Apple announced an update to its iPod touch line of devices, and they look delicious. The newest models are thinner (6.1mm), lighter (88 grams), and have a bigger screen (4") than last year's models. Apple has also crammed a dual-core A5 CPU in there, along with a 5-megapixel camera, iMovie, Siri, and a weird loop on the back that you can attach a wrist strap to. It also has a battery that will last through 8 hours of video watching (that's more than three viewings of The Avengers!) or 40 hours of music listening (that's more than 37 listen-throughs of The Avengers's soundtrack).
And you can get all that with 32GB of storage for $299 or 64GB for $399. At these prices though, we have to wonder: who would buy the iPod touch over a full tablet? Yes, it's like comparing Apples to oranges [sigh], but when a full-fledged tablet like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD costs $199, will consumers pay more for a smaller screen, albeit with arguably better internal specs, including storage? Where do you stand on this, Internet? Discuss! Leave us your thoughts in the comments below.
