Apple’s New Shuffle Available Worldwide Friday

The "Most Wearable iPod Ever" from Apple, the new iPod Shuffle, will be available worldwide this Friday, according to a press release from Apple.

Apple’s new iPod® shuffle which I saw in the flesh at the Mac Expo London, is tiny and just so neat and appealing. It will be available in Apple’s retail stores and Apple® Authorised Resellers this Friday, November 3. It is nearly half the size of the original iPod shuffle and is just half a cubic inch in volume. It weighs in at just half an ounce and features a minimal aluminium design with a built-in clip, making it the most wearable iPod ever. The new iPod shuffle contains one gigabyte of flash memory which holds up to 240 songs. The package includes earbud headphones and a new minature dock. With up to 12 hours battery life, the new iPod shuffle is priced at just £55 (inc. VAT).

“With its ultra-compact design and built-in clip, the new iPod shuffle is the most wearable iPod ever,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. “ The new iPod shuffle completes our all-new lineup of iPods for this holiday season and beyond, and we hope it's going to be a huge hit.”
