The Long-Neglected 16GB iPod Touch Gets a Camera And a Price Cut

While it might surprise some that the iPod touch is still trundling along, the entire lineup has gotten a significant price cut today—and the lowest-end version picked up a fancy new camera and a color spectrum.

The 16GB iPod touch now costs $200, down from $230, and comes in pink, yellow, blue, and grey in addition to the silver that existed before. It's also added a 5MP rear camera, where previously it had none. The rest of the lineup—the 32GB and 64GB iPod touch—now cost $250 and $300 respectively, a $50 drop in each case.

That's about it for upgrades though; it's otherwise got the same three-year-old A5 processor, middling RAM, and other ho hum specs. That's okay though! The iPod touch is the perfect device for kids who aren't old enough for phones but ARE old enough for Instagram and I dunno maybe Where's My Water? You know, kid things, that don't demand a full arsenal of computing power but do benefit from a pink shell. [Apple]
