New iPods are here!

If you visit the Apple Store daily, you should have notice that the new iPods have arrived.

The first big difference is the notable colour display available on all models.

But the fancyness of the screen is not the only change. The battery life has also extended from 12 hours on 4G iPods (mine) to 15 hours on the new model.

As for the capacity, the 30GB and 40GB models have been replaced by the 60GB one, while the 20GB model is still available. This will allow bigger capacity while keeping an affordable model around.

It also seems like Apple is cutting the cost by not shipping the Firewire cable and only providing the USB2 cable.

Nevertherless, the U2 iPod is still around, now using a gorgeous (quoting Steve Job's terms on the first presentation of the U2 iPod) colour display.

Now, I do feel like I have 400 bucks to burn... ;)
