Apple's latest event, "It's just Rock and Roll", surely had a large impact on raising the bar when it comes to mobile gadgets! This post will tackle the new iPod Touch and Nano.

iPod Touch 3rd Gen: a new mobile gaming platform?

Ok, I admit it, I was one of the bloggers who thought that the iPod Touch 3rd Gen would have a camera. I was proven wrong when Steve Jobs presented the newest one without a camera on the back. However, what bothers me and almost every Tech Blogger I talked with, is besides the memory bumpage and hardware upgrade, what is there to look forward to with the new iPod touch? New games? Is Apple serious in going up against mobile gaming giants the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS? Looks like the iPod Touch is Apple's foray into the gaming world:
According to Steve, Apple wasn't "exactly sure how to market the touch" at first, but once they listened to their customers and started to focus on gaming, "it just took off."
Good luck on that Steve.

Prices will range from $199 for the 8GB, $229 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB, and the brand new 64GB for $399.

iPod Nano gets vid cam!

The biggest upgrade was the iPod Nano as it now comes with a camera at the back and FM Radio. It'll also have speakers and microphone on it to enable you to hear the video without speakers. It'll also have a wide range of colors from red, pink, orange, silver, black, purple, blue, green, and yellow. They will cost $179 for 16GB and $149 for the 8GB.
