CNET Update: iPods arrive while waiting for iPad Mini

2:49 /

Apple's new iPod Touch and Nano are shipping, new photos offer more clues about iPad Mini, and Facebook adds a Pinterest-like feature.

Today's show is about to get a little touchy. I'm Bridget Carey. And this is your CNET Update. The new iPod Touch and iPod Nano are now shipping. The Touch starts at $300 for 32 Gigs of memory. It has a larger screen and works with Siri just like its iPhone cousin, and for the first time it comes in a few colors. It's coated in tropical shades of pink, yellow and blue, as well as light gray, slate and red for the Product Red Foundation. The Nano is $150 and comes in even more colors. Adding green and purple to the rainbow, and the Evolve music player has a design that looks like a super shrunk down iPhone with a certain home button under the 2.5-inch touch screen. Aside from the new iPods, the hype just continues to grow on the next iPod Mini. A researcher at 9to5Mac posted photos on Twitter that appear to be real photos of the back of iPod Mini, showing a thin body and a small or lighting port connector at the bottom. Now pricing will be interesting if the iPod Touch starts at $300, you gotta wonder, will this new iPod model also be around $300 or maybe even a little more? The competitive price point in the 7-inch category is $200, but Apple may not care to compete closely on price if there are high-end features. While, Apple's tablet gets smaller, Google's tablet is getting larger. I have here the Google Nexus 7 Tablet. But Google is working on a 10-inch version of this according to an analyst at NPD Display Search. This would be a high-end device made by Samsung. Facebook wants to be more like Pinterest. It just added a feature called Collections where you can mark products you like into a wish list. First, a retail has to create something called the Collection on their Facebook page, only seven stores were doing this including Pottery Barn and Victoria's Secret. Users can collect those products posted to their wall and file it to a category. I thought it'd be pretty buggy when I tried it out and I couldn't find all the items I collected in one place. So once Facebook irons this out, you will probably see this at more retailers. Today's app to watch is one that could be handy if you're going for crossnating on ordering prints of your digital photos. It's called FreePrints. Right now, it's only for Apple Mobile devices but it'll be an Android by the end of the year. What makes FreePrints interesting is that one menu holding all the photos you have on your device as well as social networks like Facebook, Flickr, Instagram and Picasa. Just check up the images you want, the sizes you want and get the glasses mailed to you. It's called FreePrints but it's not completely free. You still have to pay for shipping and it cost about the same as you would pay for an online service like Snapfish. That's your Tech News Update for today, but we got links to all these stories at the blog cnet.com/update. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
