Apple has introduced a 16GB iPod touch for US$229 alongside its 32GB and 64GB models.

Like its bigger siblings, it sports 4-inch Retina display and dual-core A5 chip. However, as noted by “Macworld” (, it lacks a few of its siblings’ features: For one thing, you’ll find no rear-facing camera on the model. Apple dropped the fancy 5-megapixel iSight camera from the 32GB and 64GB models, leaving only the front-facing FaceTime HD camera, with its 1.2MP photo and 720p video capabilities.
