Apple has finally realised the futility of high pricing its products and releasing a no frills 16GB iPod touch.  The new release is priced at $229 (Rs.13000.00 approx).  As I have mentioned it comes without the rear camera even the front camera has been toned down.  The front camera will be a 1.2MP one with 720p (HD) capability.  This version will not have the loop which you can connect to your wrist. 

The Apple India website has an image of the new release with the quotes "Coming soon".   As far as I can tell it should be available by the first week of June, 2013.  

A brief description about the 16GB iPod touch.  It comes in two colours, Black and Silver.  The 16GB variant features a 4-inch Retina display, Apple’s A5 chip and Siri. Housed in an anodised aluminium body, like the 32GB and 64GB variants, it is even slimmer than the iPhone 5 at just 6 mm thick. It weighs 86 g.  

The fifth generation iPod is said to deliver twice processing and 7 times faster graphics compared to it older sibling.  It can also give you a 40 hours non stop music playback or a 8 hours video playback on one charge. It will also ship with the the popular Apple EarPods.

So if you are planning to get one, visit this site for further news.  Do comment in on the article.

    1. Yes a great opportunity for Apple to reach Indian fans I guess

  4. I confess I am not an apple fan !!Somehow things dont look easy to me on their platforms .. although I have heard all good words .. lets see sometime in future !! :)

    1. mysay.in the iOS tech is really good once you get the hang of it but Apple sadly has kept it surprisingly costly so we may have to wait for a long long time to get a budget iPhone
