A touch-screen iPod has been added to Apple's popular line of portable music players.
The gadget also has wi-fi and a web browser on-board so people can buy music when they are out and about.

The device was unveiled by Apple boss Steve Jobs during a press conference that also showed off revamped versions of the other models of music players.

The overhaul comes in time for the key US holiday season when Apple typically sees an upturn in sales of the players.

The iPod touch was the star of the widely anticipated announcements made by Mr Jobs which saw changes made to every music player the company makes.
