When Apple launched the iPhone 5 last month, the tech giant also revamped it’s iPod range with iPhone Touch and iPod Nano getting a complete make-over.
As with previous devices in the iPod Touh range, the 5th gen iPod Touh has also been designed around the new features and specs which the latest iPhone has got!
At the thickness of only 6.1mm and weighing just 88g, it looks sexier and more stunning that the super-slim new iPhone 5. Well, this is the design which you would always what to have for your smartphone!
Also, instead of the traditional black and white themes, for the first time, the 5th Gen iPod Touch comes in a variety of colors (like it currently ships for Shuffle and Nano range) giving you a lot more options to choose from as per your taste.
The new range iPods are already available in the US and UK markets but the Indian debut for the new gen iPods is still pending. Again, like the iPhone 5, we expect the new iPod Touch and iPod nano also to be made available some time around Diwali.
In my last post, I wrote about the slashed prices for iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 in India ahead of the iPhone 5 launch and now in this post, I am writing about the 5th Gen iPod Touch price in India.
iPod Touch 5th gen is available at $299 for 32 GB and $399 for 64 GB variant in the US. In the UK, it has a price tag of £249 for 32 GB model and £329 for a 64 GB variant.
As per the price tag released on the Apple India website, the 32 GB variant will sell for Rs. 23,900 (approx. $450) and the 64 GB model will be available at Rs. 30,900 (approx. $590). This is almost 1.5 times the prices for which it is available in the US!
5th Generation iPod Touch Prices in India
- 32 GB Rs. 23,900
- 64 GB Rs. 30, 900
Here I have listed the main features of the iPod Touch 5th Gen:
- 5MP iSight camera
- 1080p HD video recording
- AirPlay mirroring
- Widescreen Video
- Facebook and Twitter integration
- Audio playback Up to 40 hours
- Video playback Up to 8 hours
- Apple EarPods
- Lightning to USB Cable
- iPod touch loop
What do you think about the iPod Touch 5th Gen prices in India? If I were you, rather than spending almost 1.5 times the money here in India, I would dig out some link with my relatives in the US and rather get it from them – but even that is not too simple!
Or, else if you are getting inclined towards the 64 GB variant, better go for an iPhone 5 or simply take a 4th Gen model rather than shelling out so much money on a bigger screen if listening to good music is what you are after! 😛
And, if you are inclined towards the 32 GB model (for Rs 23, 900), rather got for the iPhone 4 8GB model which is now available for Rs 28,300 after Apple slashed prices!
