The entire "new" iPod family
Apple's entire range of iPods receive a makeover

Apple today announced a new refresh to its line of iPods that include the iPod, the Nano, and the Shuffle. The new iPod will have a 60-percent brighter screen and have an increased video playback time of 3.5 hours, which is roughly 1.5 hours more than the current iPod. Apple will also be releasing a bigger capacity iPod that sports an internal 80GB hard drive that can play video for 6.5 hours.

The iPod Nano will also receive a refresh. Apple today announced that the iPod Nano will now be all aluminum and available in various colors. Currently, the iPod Nano is made of plastic and was previously reported to be easily scratched. Available colors for the new iPod Nano are green, silver, black, blue and pink. Apple will be making the new iPod Nano in three flavors: 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. The 2GB iPod Nano will only be available in silver color.

2GB: $149 - Silver only
4GB: $199 - All colors except black
8GB: $249 - All colors

The new iPod Nanos will come with a new charger, armband and new lanyard. Apple claims that the new Nano will be able to play for roughly 24 hours non stop.

Along with new iPods, Apple will be introducing new software for the small players as well. New generation software will include such features as gapless playback, searching, and a host of new games: Bejeweled, Pac Man, Texas Holdem, Tetris, Mahjong and others. Users will also be able to purchase games for their iPods off of iTunes for $4.99 per game.

Apple's iPod Shuffle will also receive a revamp. The Shuffle has been reduced in size to roughly the size of the iPod radio remote. The iPod Shuffle's body is now metal and comes in only a 1GB version for $79. Apple said that the new Shuffle will ship in October of this year.

Please, people. I hate to be the spelling/grammar nazi, but it's "definitely," not "definately." There is no "a" in the word. Thank you. Oh, yeah. Unless Apple has expanded the video codec compatibility of these refreshed iPods, I will stick with the Creative Vision: M. That 80GB version is looking tempting, though.

English is not my native tongue so I might slip a typo every now and then. Maybe I should switch to german, spanish, swedish or finnish instead. That would remove most of the grammar mistakes but I don't think many people would understand what I'm saying...

My point. There are international visitors here at Dailytech so cut us some slack.

On the Something Awful forums, if you spell definitely incorrectly, it changes it to [NOTE: I AM TOO STUPID TO SPELL "DEFINITELY" CORRECTLY.] I find it funny, at least!
