iPod Photo announced today!

Apple’s at it again. They announced today, the release of their iPod Photo. Color screen (65,000 colors), album art, photo syncing. What else could you ask for? Perhaps a media card reader? Or at least a slimline media reader that you’d plug into the dock connector?

I think the album art is cooler than the photos. Who wants to view photos on a teeny, tiny screen? However, it comes with AV cables so you can display them on your television. iPod photo optimizes the photos to fit on either a 4:3 or 16:9 televison. I guess it’d be cool to fire up a slide show, playing music, all from your iPod.

I think it’s funny they have this hooked up to a Sony television, as Sony is directly competing with this product, with their VAIO Digital Music Player (VGF-AP1L).
