Right on the heels of launching its latest iPod touch, Apple revealed that it had reached a new milestone. The Cupertino-based company has sold more than 100 million iPod touch devices worldwide since its launch back in 2007, TheLoop reports.
When the first iPod touch was launched, it was an instant hit as it featured the design and most of the functionalities of the iPhone minus the calling ability. It played an important role in bridging the gap between iPods and iPhones, as you could own a device as good as the iPhone at a much affordable price.
Yesterday, Apple released a cheaper variant of its fifth-generation iPod touch with a 4-inch Retina Display, dual-core A5 chip and 16GB of internal storage. To keep the price down, Apple has sacrificed the 5-megapixel iSight rear camera; though it still retains the 1.2-megapixel front camera to make FaceTime calls.
Though Apple hasn’t officially launched the product in India, we were told by people familiar with the matter, that this latest iPod touch has been priced at an MRP of Rs 17,800 and is likely to be available in the next fortnight or so.
