iPod touch photos
Apple's new iPod touch began shipping to its retail stores (as well as very few customers) this weekend -- but iPhones were still the popular ticket at its San Francisco flagship location. Apple's retail stores began receiving shipments of the 16GB model on Thursday, but by Friday had still not put them on display. Representatives said that they didn't know when to expect shipments of the 8GB model. Built around the iPhone design, the new iPod touch is thinner and more compact as well as sports few new features not yet available to iPhone users, including the iTunes mobile music store. However, it does uses the same multi-touch interface. We have the traditional unboxing photos and a quick look at the over-the-air purchase process. Update: While few customers report receiving their iPod touch, some Apple retail stores and some Best Buy stores have received both 8GB and 16GB models.
