Apple 60GB Color Photo iPod

Apple 60GB Color Photo iPod

Apple has announced the long expected 60gb color version of the iPod:

“A delight for the ears. A feast for the eyes. Though it’s no bigger than a pack of playing cards and weighs in at just over 6 ounces, iPod Photo delivers a one-two sensory punch. Letting you carry an entire library of your favorite music — up to 15,000 songs — or enough photos — as many as 25,000 — to fill nearly 200 slide trays or cover nearly 5,000 square feet of wall space. Got a really big den?

The newest member of the iPod family, iPod Photo comes in two sizes: a 40GB model, available for $499, and a capacious 60GB model that sells for $599. Both feature a razor sharp LCD display that lets you see your photos in vivid color — 65,536 colors, to be exact. And with its built-in backlighting, you’ll be able to admire those photos indoors or out.”

Some highlights of the 60gb iPod Photo are 15 hr battery life, 220 x 176 pixel 65k color screen, syncs album art, and a (too high) $599 price tag.
