Typing on the iPod Touch is no harder--or easier--than with the iPhone. It will still take good aim, practice and plenty of patience.

The new Nano comes loaded with new games and Apple's Cover Flow software, which lets users scroll through album covers when searching for music. Notice that it keeps the click-wheel. It will be available in the same colors as the Shuffle.

The iPod Nano comes in several new colors. Silver isn't a new color, but this one happens to match Jobs' stubble.
