iPod touch range made cheaper, 16GB model gets color selection and iSight camera

A price drop for the iPod touch range has been a long time coming, but it’s here finally. Prices of all three models of the iconic listening device have been slashed by Apple, even as the smallest model from the range has gained some important features which its elder cousins have been enjoying from the start.

These include the ability to select from different color options while buying the device. Yes, the 16GB model of the fifth generation iPod touch need not only be purchased in its space gray shade from now on. All the color selections which the 32GB and 63GB versions feature have been granted to this edition as well.

Moreover, while the earlier 16GB variant only grabbed a front-facing FaceTime HD camera, the refreshed version will also kick in a 5MP iSight camera on its rear surface. All this at a price of $199, which is down from the earlier $229 asking amount.

Obviously, this warrants a price drop for the other two models as well. Both have been granted $100 cuts in their price tags by Apple, with the 32GB variant now going for $249 and the 64GB iPod touch having been placed at $299.
