iPods Get Upgrades - Greener Too

Posted on 9.08.2008

Apple has announced the full release of an all new iPod Nano, as well as some upgrades to the iPod touch and other models. The Nano features the slimmest of all iPod designs, as well as a larger screen than previous versions and is more environmentally friendly than earlier versions. This includes arsenic-free glass, free of BFRs, mercury and PVC, and made of more recyclable materials. According to Steve Jobs, "There’s more we’re going to do in the future, but these are the cleanest, toxic-free iPods we’ve ever built." It retails for $149 (8GB) and $199 (16GB).

Who knew that Apple was lagging behind in the green department? Well, we did. Although they do seem to be getting better.

The iPod touch will now feature a design akin to the iPhone (don't grab the wrong one on the way out the door), integrated volume controls and a built-in speaker.
