In spite of general courier weirdness — the useless Track and Trace page showed them picking up my parcel this morning when in fact they picked it up yesterday afternoon — my new white 60Gb iPod with video has arrived. The package is so small! But then it doesn’t have the accessories of the older models. The package contains a connection cable, a plastic insert for the dock, some earbuds and covers, and a leather-like slip cover. Fitting the iPod into the slip cover is rather like putting toothpaste back in the tube — it’s a very secure fit.
The photos below show packaging and products side by side. The old is a 4th generation 40 Gb iPod (not photo capable) and the new the 60Gb iPod with video.
