Apple Unveils New IPods

SAN FRANCISCO — Apple CEO Steve Jobs has unveiled new iPods and hailed a truce with NBC Universal to bring its TV programs back to iTunes.

The iPod upgrades include two new Nano models, oval-shaped devices that Jobs said are the thinnest iPods yet. A $149 version comes with 8 gigabytes of memory; a 16-gigabyte version is $199.

Jobs also showed off three new versions of the iPod Touch, the closest cousin to the iPhone. An 8-gigabyte version of the new model will sell for $229; a 16-gigabyte version will be $299 and a 32 GB model will be $399.

NBC’s return to the iTunes content store comes a year after pulling out in a dispute over the prices Apple charged for shows sold.

Jobs kicked off the event by flashing a message on a screen behind him: “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”
