Was just about to post the information mainly because I also have a question: the "old" 5.5G iPod Video players supported gapless playback together with the 2G Nanos. While I see "Skip-free playback" as feature of the new Nanos, it does not appear for the iPod Touch nor for iPod Classic. Does this mean that the "big" iPods lost the gapless playback feature?
Also, is the Shuffle a new series or did they just change colors? I see that the new Shuffles also support "Skip-free playback" now. Any idea if this can be added via firmware update to existing 2G Shuffles?

I am not sure about gapless playback for these newer devices. I would think that the 3G iPod nano and 1G iPod classic have gapless playback like their previous models. Both the new nano and iPod classic run a very similar (if not the same) firmware. The nano has the processor power for cover flow so I imagine it would more than have the processor power for gapless playback. As for the iPod touch, I am completely unaware and have not guesses about that as I don't know audio playback specs of the iPhone. If the iPhone has gapless audio playback then I imagine the iPod touch would as well.

I think the big surprise from all the announcements today was the $350 160GB iPod classic with 40 hours of audio playback time and 7 hours of video playback time. That is about $2.18 per GB, a cost that hasn't been seen in quite a bit of time. 160GB would be more than enough for some people to carry around their entire lossy or lossless libraries. With a 40 hour battery life, one could afford to lose 1/2 of that to listen to Apple lossless audio. I ordered my 160GB black iPod classic today.

I would have ordered the iPod touch but I think it is just too expensive, too early, and there isn't enough storage capacity. I realize that they are using NAND flash memory to fill the iPod touch and that is what makes it rather pricey (not to mention the display and wi-fi antenna) and that is also what limits their storage capacity but 16GB is just not enough to cut it for me. I also realize that if Apple added a hard drive to the iPod touch that it would be ridiculously thick as they would of had to add a much larger battery to get anywhere near 20 hours of audio playback.

I think the iPod touch is the future of iPods in that they will switch to a all flash memory system offering up touch screens, internet browsing, etc. I will just wait two years before purchasing a iPod like that. My 160GB iPod classic will more than last me as it is more than enough space for me to fit my full lossy library, music videos, movies, TV shows, and photos. Not to mention that I think it looks pretty slick and a lot more durable than the older 5G/5.5G iPods.
