The $229 16GB iPod Touch joins 32GB and 64GB versions of the Touch in Apple’s fifth-generation iPod lineup.

Cupertino, Calif. — Apple expanded its selection of fifth-generation iPod Touch MP3/video players with the launch of a $229 16GB model.

The new iPod Touch complement its $299 32GB and $399 64BG models, which were introduced last September.

 Apple also discontinued its two fourth-generation Touches. Those two models, sporting 16GB and 32GB storage, remained in the line after last September’s fifth-generation launch but were re-priced down to $199 and $249, respectively.

 The fifth-gen 16GB Touch offers all of the same features as its higher-capacity brethren except for the lack of a rear-facing 5-megapixel 1080p camera. Like the other models, however, the new model still features a front-facing 720p video chat camera.

Other features common to all three models include 8-pin Lightning connector, 4-inch Retina display, dual-core Apple A5 processor, AirPlay and Siri.
