Apple’s 5th generation iPod Touch is certainly a very nice upgrade since it has been 3 years since the last update. The CPU has been upgraded from A5 to A8 and it should represent a significant improvement in the overall speed of the ipod Touch.

The most interesting part about the new ipod is that Apple has chosen to slow down the A8’s to 1.1 GHz to keep the ipod cool and running longer. Why not ship with an A7?

Anyway, I wonder if this new Ipod Touch will entice consumers to pay $299 for the 32 GB model?
