Apple launches new iPod Touch, as it breaks the 100million mark

Apple launched
a new entry level iPod Touch early Thursday, and also quietly confirmed that they've sold 100 millon of the portable media devices since launching the line in 2007.
Both announcements came, well, without announcements of any sort; the new iPod quietly appeared in Apple's online store last night, and company spokespeople mentioned the sales milestone in a conversation with blogger Jim Dalrymple. There isn't a related press release to be found.

The $229 device features the same slim form factor, A5 chip, 4" Retina display and iOS 6 operating system as Apple's other Touch models, but lacks the rear-facing camera and larger storage capacities of the previous Touches. Available only in one configuration (16GB of storage paired with a black & silver finish), the newest iPod will ship within 24 hours and be available in Apple retail stores tomorrow.
