What’s more interesting is how Apple didn’t announce the new upgrade to hardware during MacWorld 2008. In the past year and a half, Steve’s keynotes have been rather segmented – not delivering everything in one big bang. Though this is just a minor announcement, I don’t see reason why he could have announced this during MacWorld ’08. The closest I could think of would be that it might derail focus on the new Apple iTunes rentals. But that also doesn’t make sense as well since the new announcements do affect the iPods and the iPhone as media storage hubs alongside Apple TV.
To iPod touch owners – do you feel cheated out of this deal, or does the USD $499.00 price tag turn you off?
Oh well. Steve does it because … he can.
FYI Digital Walker will start to have stocks of the 32GB iPod touch starting next week.
