In addition to announcing a stripped-down, lower-cost fifth-generation iPod touch, Apple told The Loop that 100 million iPod touch units have been sold since the device’s introduction in 2007.

In addition to launching a new model of its iPod touch on Thursday, Apple told me this morning that it has sold more than 100 million units of the iPod touch since its introduction.

The first iPod touch launched a few months after the original iPhone, and it has since seen several major hardware and software updates that have made the product into a true iPhone “without the phone/contract” device.
