Taking to the stage in a trademark black sweater Steve Jobs unveiled the new range of iPods proudly proclaiming that for this year's PMP updates Apple has “gone wild”. Joining the Touch in the iPod update is the rest of the range as both the iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano are given significant updates.

Continuing to take notes from its smartphone sibling the Touch adds Apple's A4 processing chip and 3-axis gyroscope for improved gaming. The Touch's gaming credentials will be further boosted by the Game Centre featured in the iOS 4.1 update that it will come packed with the new Touch at launch.

Whilst the Touch's new front-facing camera will allow for FaceTime calling between all compatible iPod Touch and iPhone 4 devices, it is the device's rear camera that offers the cream of the recording crop with 720p HD video capabilities joining the snapper.

Available in three sizes, 8GB, 32GB and 64GB, the new iPod Touch is available for pre-order today ahead of shipping next week priced at £189, £249 and £329 respectively.
