Company introduces new program called 'FaceTime'

Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled a refreshed line of iPod media players on Sept. 1 including a new iPod Touch which allows for video calling.

The new iPod Touch features front- and rear-facing cameras which allow a user to hold video chats with iPhone or other iPod Touch owners using Wi-Fi and an Apple program called "FaceTime."

The new iPod Touch is part of the "strongest new lineup of iPods we've ever had," Jobs said at an event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.

"It's the biggest change in the iPod lineup ever," he said.

Jobs, dressed in his trademark black shirt and blue jeans, also showed off a new iPod Shuffle for $49 and a touchscreen version of the middle-range iPod Nano starting at $149.

The new iPod Touch costs $229 for the eight-gigabyte model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB version.

He said the new iPods would be available next week.
