Apple has unveiled a new iPod with video playback capability. The new models come in 30GB and 60GB configurations. Video is displayed on the gadget’s 2.5-inch, 320-x-240 pixel colour TFT display, and the unit offers realtime decoding of MPEG-4 and H.264 video.

The video iPod can hold up to 150 hours of video, and costs £219 for the 30GB model, and £299 for the 60GB model. You can choose between white or black finish. According to the Apple UK online store, the new iPods will be ready to ship in a week.

Apple plans to make episodes of five different TV shows available through the new version of iTunes, although whether these services will eventually roll out in the UK is unclear.

Ad-free downloads of Desperate Housewives, Lost, Nightstalker, That's So Raven, and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody will be available on iTunes for $1.99 each.
