Yesterday in San Francisco at MacWorld Expo, Apple announced some new products and upgrades for the iPod touch and iPhone.

These upgrades provide additional applications, annoyingly free on the iPhone and a �12.99 upgrade for the iPod touch.

Huh!

Probably worth it for the e-mail and notes applications which make the iPod touch a more interactive device than it was.

Key new product announced at the keynote was the MacBook Air, a small light MacBook, which with a 13" screen is still a little on the big side for me.

The new upgrades to the iPod touch do make it much more useful to learners who want to use it to “learn while mobile”.

    It’s the best email you’ve ever seen on a handheld device. View rich HTML email with graphics and photos displayed inline, as well as PDF and Microsoft Word and Excel attachments.

Whether it’s the best is down to personal opinion…

However now that it can receive and send e-mail (outside webmail) and view Word and Excel attachments (no mention of PowerPoint) and PDFs (okay save that presentation as a PDF) means that it is now possible to read more stuff on the iPod touch then you could before.

I quite like the idea of the Maps feature, whether it will actually work in practice is a different story.

As you can e-mail notes this means that learners will be able to send their tutors answers to questions, etc…

Even better news
We may actually see support for Flash on the iPhone:
Then we really have a serious tool for learning

Steve Jobs said that the iPhone doesn't support Flash because it runs too slowly on the device to be useful.
