iPod Shuffle


Here’s a first look at the new iPod Shuffle display, which is supposedly a 1.2inch x 1.2inch touchscreen. Plus, “it has two connectors; one of these is presumed to attach to a home button, although the button isn’t part of the frame here.” Continue reading for one more picture.

The component is marked “Apple,” which may or may not add credence to the rumor, depending on your personal level of skepticism.

Apple’s iPod Shuffle is now more colorful than ever. It comes in gleaming pink, blue, green, black, or silver. Yes, there’s still enough room on the device for some personalization (engraving). Available now in 2GB or 4GB storage capacities. Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

Rest assured that the all-new, button-less iPod Shuffle is still packed with plenty of electronics on the inside, as this teardown shows. There’s just one screw to remove, and you’re ready to explore. Click here for first picture in gallery.

This teardown is a little different than most, mainly because of just how simple this device is; once it was cracked open, there was one screw to worry about.

According to early reviewers, the “player itself makes the old shuffles like almost giant in comparison; its featureless face might be a bit odd if it weren’t for the fact that your thumb covers the entirety of the player when you hold it.” Video after the break.

Still, people seem quite satisfied to put up with this sort of inconvenience and hassle when it comes to Apple, and with design, size and build quality like this, not to mention the welcome addition of VoiceOver, we imagine those third party accessory makers are going to like this new shuffle just fine.

Now that you’ve seen the new iPod Shuffle and/or pre-ordered it, we’ve got the guided tour for your viewing enjoyment. Apple touts this player as the world’s smallest — “controls of the new iPod shuffle are located on the right earbud cord. With command central now strategically placed in this more convenient location, you can navigate your music.” Video after the break.

Amazon is now offering the 3G iPod Shuffle for pre-order at $79.99 shipped. Its new “VoiceOver feature lets iPod shuffle tell you what song is playing and who’s performing it.” Product page.

With VoiceOver–and with the controls conveniently located on the earbud cord–it’s even easier to navigate your music. You can do it without taking your eyes off your run, your ride, or whatever you’re doing.
