Apple updated its iPod media players, introducing a model with a touch-screen and other iPhone features. A new version now has a touch-sensitive screen, wireless Internet access, and a Web browser. Unlike an iPhone, it can't make or receive phone calls.

The iPod Touch allows users to download songs wirelessly, and, eventually, will let people sample and buy digital tunes from any Starbucks in the U.S. that offers Wi-Fi Internet access.

The iPod Touch is less than 1/3-in. thick and can be used for storing photos, music, videos, and other digital data. It features the same 3.5-in., touch-screen display as the iPhone, on which light finger touches allow the user to scroll through menus, and two fingers are used to resize pictures.

The iPod Touch also has built-in wireless Internet access and the Safari Web browser. The iPhone, which runs on AT&T Inc.'s cellular network, also supports Wi-Fi.

The 8-gigabyte iPhone will be US$399 — $200 cheaper than the same model when it went on sale in June. The 4-gigabyte iPhone, which sold for $399, will be phased out. By comparison, the new touch-screen iPods will start at $299.
