iPhone 4, iPod Touch, Retina, Apple, iPhone games, Face Time, iPod Touch 4th generationDuring his press conference filled with announcements of new iPod and music-related products, Steve Jobs was joking about the fact that everyone is calling the iPod Touch “an iPhone without the phone”. A few seconds later, the CEO announced the new iPod Touch that is an iPhone 4, but without the phone in it. The iPod Touch has all the new features of the iPhone 4 including the gorgeous Retina display, a new camera on the back that shoots HD footage including HD video, a front camera that can be used for Face Time between iPods and iPhones. The only thing that looks different from the hardware side is the thickness of the device. The iPod Touch is still thinner than the iPhone 4, and it’s even thinner than the last generation iPod Touch. The new iPod Touch devices, available with 8 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, will be available next week. Here’s some pricing and release date information from Apple’s press release:

iPod is the world’s most popular family of digital music players with over a quarter billion sold. Apple’s new holiday lineup includes a brand new iPod shuffle® for just $49; the amazing new iPod nano® with Multi-Touch™ starting at just $149; the incredible new iPod touch with Retina display, Apple’s A4 chip, FaceTime, HD video recording and Game Center starting at just $229; and the iPod classic® in a 160GB model for $249.

    TIP NEW APP: eCarPark

    Hello,

    eCarPark is an iPhone/iPod app that allows you to save your car park location.

    You don’t have to use Location Service to set a park. There are other features that you can use like write notes, take a photo, record a voice notes and set park meter timer.

    The park meter timer has an option to be alert by push notification (only for iOS4 or later).

    If you set an GPS location and you have an iPhone 3GS or later, your can use the compass that guides you to your car.

    This app was developed with two situations in mind:
    - people who park in big open parking.
    - people who park inside a building.

    On an open parking, you can save the geo location and if you have an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4, the app will use the compass feature of the iPhone to show you if you are heading to the right direction.
    If you have iPhone 3G, the app will calculate your movement in the park to show an arrow pointing to the direction you are heading. In iPod you will not have this feature, since its geolocation is far less accurate.

    In the second case, you don’t have to use geolocation, since you are inside a building. You can use all other features without having to wait to get a geo location signal.

    Features:
    - allow GPS position record
    - allow voice record
    - allow take a photo
    - allow take notes
    - allow push notification of time remaining (iOS4 only)
    - easyly find the direction where your car is parked at.

    With this app you’ll never loose your car again!
    It only cost $1.99!!!

    To get this app just click here: eCarPark for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
