If perhaps after Christmas, you’re still wondering whether you should get your hands on that new iPod Touch, this little comparison might help you out. Here we have a video showing the comparison of the iPod Touch with one of it’s latest mp3 player rival, the Samsung P2 aka Samsung YP-P2. The P2 looks alot like the latest LG Viewty, with its glossy black candybar design it looks rather like a touch screen mobile phone!
The Samsung P2 comes in 4 Gb and 8 Gb memory capacities, for some good specs, we recommend visiting CNET, watch the video shortly after the break…
With the recent buzz about the use of the free iPhone “jailbreakme” AppSnapp Installer for 1.1.1, we’re disappointed to say that the iPhones soon to be delivered to the UK from O2 won’t be able to take advantage of this brilliant piece of firmware breakthrough…
Why? It seems that from the image shown above, the iPhone which will be arriving the UK on November 9th will come with the latest firmware version 1.1.2, which means this lot will have already out-paced jailbreakme‘s recent application.
Yes, Apple has finally decided to open up the latest iPhone as well as the Touch to 3rd party applications, however the community will need to wait until February for this “software development kit” to be released.
Here’s what Steve Jobs said in the press:
Let me just say it: We want native third party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers? hands in February. We are excited about creating a vibrant third party developer community around the iPhone and enabling hundreds of new applications for our users. With our revolutionary multi-touch interface, powerful hardware and advanced software architecture, we believe we have created the best mobile platform ever for developers.
Here’s some news about a soon to arrive video / mp3 player to look out for, SanDisk’s latest version of Sansa View!
Following the news about the launch of redesigned new iPods and iPod Touch, SanDisk decided it was also time to tell the world about their newly improved media players. The new Sansa Views has been redesigned with a new 2.4-inch, 320×240 pixels screen, if you can recall the old Sansa View which was abit chubby both in size and thickness, this new one will instead be more comfortable to hold in the palm of your hands.
The new Sansa View will support video formats like MPEG4, WMV and H.264, it will also come bundled with a converter software, allowing you to convert DivX formats for viewing.
As you can see in the pic above, at just 0.35″ thin, it will be a convenient handheld media player / device, along with a battery that SanDisk has claimed to be able to last up to 7 hours of video play and 35 hours of music play.
Additionally, the new Sansa View will be available in 8 Gb and 16 Gb. Although it isn’t available to the UK yet, based on its pricing, what you pay for a 8 Gb Sansa View will only get you a 4 Gb Apple iPod, which is about $149 USD, equivalent to approximately £73 pounds.
The new iPod has been spoken about in everyone’s conversation here in the UK, Apple this and iPod Touch that…woh…we britons are just as addicted to Apple as any other nation after all. I realise its already been in the press, in the news on tv and you readers out there probably know more about then i do! But ok, it doesn’t matter, this will just be a quick post with lots of cool pics and some main specs about the new iPod Touch.
So it turns out Apple will finally be launching an iPod with touch screen and WiFi, the new iPod will be equipped with a hi-resolution 3.5″ screen, Safari web browser, with its internet connectivity, users will also be able to directly download music via iTunes. The new iPod Touch does not have any buttons, music controls, everything is simply based on control via its touchscreen. However, if you’ve read up to this point, you may probably realise there is really nothing more to the new iPod Touch that iPhone doesn’t already have, except for the phone bit.
If you were to hold the iPod Touch, you will notice that it is thinner (8mm) in comparison to the iPhone, may be that is the main difference! In terms of pricing, iPod Touch will be expected to arrive the UK (and worldwide) by the end of the month. Roughly speaking, the 8 Gb version will cost approx. £150.00, while the 16 Gb will be £200.00.
