Apple announces new iPod Touch

Apple has announced a new iPod Touch, featuring, 16Gb storage, an ultraslim design, 4-inch Retina display, dual-core A5 chip, and Apple EarPods.

There is no rear-facing camera at all, however, and Apple has also omitted the “loop” lanyard hook. The new 16GB iPod touch is available to order now for $229 in a single black and silver design — Apple says it will ship within 24 hours.
