Apple Unveils New iPod Models

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has unveiled a new version of the company's popular iPod media player that's based on the iPhone, featuring wireless Internet access and a Web browser.

Dubbed iPod Touch, the device features the same three-and-a-half-inch, touch-screen display as the iPhone. Light finger touches on the screen allow the user to scroll through menus and use two fingers to resize pictures.

The iPod Touch also has built-in wireless Internet access, including Apple's Safari Web browser.

Jobs also unveiled other new iPod models, including an iPod Nano with a two-and-a-half-inch video monitor for watching movies and playing built-in games. The current version has a two-inch screen but does not play videos.

The new Nano, which will be in stores starting this weekend, will come in two models: a 4-gigabyte version for $149, and an 8-gigabyte version for $199.

Apple also announced it will be selling ring tones for its iPhone for 99 cents, plus the 99-cent cost of the song. Ring tones from more than 500,000 songs available on iTunes will go on sale next week.

    The meeting could provide powerful imagery to Catholic voters back in the United States as well as the possibility for conflict between a president and a pope who have not often seen eye-to-eye.
