You’ll be wanting one!

September 5, 2007

This is huge! I just wanted to let you know about the new iPods released in San Fransisco today. The Apple on-line stores got back up and running and here’s a first preview:

new iPod nano An all new iPod nano // Even though I really didn’t like the leaked previews of the new nano that appeared on-line during the last week, I kinda appreciate its sleek design. The aluminium case comes in five new colors and yes, it sports video! It makes me wonder wheter to buy a new one, because mine is already 2.5y old. Anyway, my shiny white 1st gen nano still matches my (even more) shining iBook. Hey, I’m becoming an “old skool” guy 😉

new iPod classic

A new iPod, from now on called iPod Classic // The new iPods seem thinner and yet much more performing, with an 80 or 160 GB hard disk under the hood, a very appealing aluminium case that matches the new iPod style, and a re-designed interface – yes: with cover flow! It only seems to me that the coverflow just isn’t that much user friendly with a click wheel – my opinion at distance.

A new iPod touch, actually a slim iPhone without the Phone (they could have called it just “i” though…) // Some thoughts: it looks quite expensive for an iPod with “only” 8/16 GB memory, but who am I to tell. It has a gorgeous 3.5″ touch screen and seem to have incorporated most of the functions of the iPhone; it has WiFi, Safari and YouTube on board. To me, this “phoneless” iPhone looks quite amazing, but it differs a lot from the other iPods in range. Didn’t they mean to create a “white” interface, somewhat in between the new Leopard and the new iPod interface? Anyhow, it’ll do fine according to me. Also, the WiFi-store and Starbucks cooperation will become huge – maybe we’ll be seeing a Starbucks opening here in Brussels city?!

new iPod line-up

If you’re Brussels based, check out the Apple Store this weekend at the 5th floor of the Galleria Inno (rue Neuve) – even though I hate the Media Markt outlet store, I should persuade myself to go and find out the atmosphere… – I’m quite sure that the new iPods will already be available over there!

Too much talk.. That’s about it for now. Just check out Apple.com ! You’ll be wanting one too! 😉

  1. Why on earth would you go to the 5th floor, when there’s an Apple shop on the outside of the City2 complex, also in the rue Neuve.
    And I bet that the one in Chée de Charleroi will even be quicker!


  2. Because the one inside the Media Markt is the first and only official Apple Store in Belgium. MacLine and the one in Uccle are only official vedors, but still independant. I used to go there (Uccle) 3 weeks after the Mighty Mouse was released in Europe and they even didn’t know when they would recieve one… Disappointing..
