Apple iPod Touch pricing slashed by up to 25 per cent in Australia

Introductory iPod Touch gets updated feature-set

Apple has slashed the prices of its premium iPod Touch by up to 25 per cent and updated the feature set of its introductory 16GB model.

Pricing of Apple’s 32GB and 64GB iPod Touches has been slashed. The 32GB iPod Touch has dropped from $329 to $299, while the 64GB has been reduced from $439 to $349.

The introductory 16GB iPod Touch gains new features in spite of retaining its $249 price. It now comes equipped with Apple’s 5 megapixel camera and in five colours. These updates put the introductory iPod Touch in line with Apple’s 32GB and 64GB variants.

The iPod Touch is slim at 6mm and has the same display as Apple’s iPhone 5S, that is, a 4in, 1136x640 Retina display. It is powered by Apple’s A5 CPU and the rear camera can record Full HD videos.

Apple’s iOS 7 comes pre-installed, but the iPod Touch can be upgraded to iOS 8 when it is released later in the year. Running Apple’s iOS makes the iPod Touch compatible with the plethora of applications available from Apple’s App Store.

The updated 16GB iPod Touch will come in pink, yellow, blue, silver and ‘space’ grey within the “coming days”, said Apple.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
