Apple spent a couple of minutes talking about the iPod Touch at today’s event. Here’s what’s new:

  • The 8GB Touch is getting a price cut from $229 to $199. (The 32GB and 64GB will still cost $299 and $399 respectively.)
  • It will come in black and white.
  • It will get updated to iOS 5, with all the nifty new features like cloud-based backup.

That’s about it. Apple also announced a new line of iPod Nanos that look like watches (anyone remember the Microsoft SPOT watch?), but the iPod Classic is not getting an update.
