Apple Inc. (AAPL.O) Chief Executive Steve Jobs unveiled on Wednesday an iPod with a touch screen that can browse the Internet wirelessly, fighting to maintain the digital media lead at a time when the company faces renewed attacks from rivals.

Jobs, who also showed off an iPod nano with a video screen, said the company plans to refresh its entire line of music players. In addition, Apple's iTunes Web music store will begin selling songs over wireless connections, he said.

Shares dropped about 2 percent as Jobs continued to introduce new products at an event in San Francisco.

"Buy the anticipation and sell the reality. I guess investors were anticipating something more positive from Apple," said Paul Foster, options strategist at Web information site theflyonthewall.com in Chicago.

The new touch-screen iPod will have many of the features of Apple's hit iPhone, including a touch screen, the ability to connect to the Internet wirelessly using Wi-Fi technology, and a mini Web browser.

"We've built in Wi-Fi and we've made it usable," Jobs said, in what could be seen as a dig at Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) Zune music player, which beat the iPod to market with Wi-Fi but has not enjoyed the iPod's popularity.

Apple will also update its iTunes online music store to let customers turn songs into ringtones for the iPhone and to allow customers to buy songs while connected wirelessly.

The iPod classic is the sixth generation continuation of Apple Inc.'s original iPod digital audio player. It was announced with a host of other iPod products at Apple's Special Event on September 5, 2007. It utilizes a new user interface which includes the Cover Flow feature.

There are two different iPod classic models: 80 GB and 160 GB, for US$249 and US$349, respectively. Both models have a new anodized metal design.

With 80GB or 160GB of storage,1 iPod classic gives your music and video room to move. It also has plenty of energy (up to 40 hours of audio playback), good looks (a sleek, all-metal design), and a great personality (a brand-new interface with Cover Flow). In other words, iPod classic makes an ideal companion. Why not get to know it better?

the ipod touch is blah. the iphone is blah. and this is just playing off the iphones features. both are overrated, and those new nanos are pointless. why would you want a nano that can play video? just get a normal ipod, its only gonna cost u about 150 more, and you get about 15 more gig, plus a bigger screen. apple is oversaturating the market
