Apple's New Budget 16GB iPod Touch: 4-inch Retina Screen

Apple has quietly launched a budget-friendly new iPod touch: a 16GB model, with a 4-inch retina display and a price tag of $249 in Australia.

Replacing the last-gen 3.5-inch version, which hung around Apple's store for a while, the new budget offering loses some of the more advanced features found on the more expensive models — such as the rear camera. It does, however, pack a dual-core Apple A5 processor and the same screen as the 4-inch iPhone and iPod Touch. It can also handle FaceTime, thanks to a front-facing camera on the front.

Only available in silver, it's available in Australian Apple Stores as of today for $249. [Apple via Verge via Slash Gear]
