Apple has just introduced today the brand new iPod Shuffle model.
The world’s smallest music player is offering 4GB of storage (approximately 1000 songs) for your music.
The next/previous and volume controls have been moved to the right earbud cord!
There are 3 buttons on the cord: volume-up, volume-down, main button.
Using the main button:
You can play/pause with a single click. Double-click to move to the next track, and triple-click for the previous track.
On the iPod Shuffle body you can find the shuffle/play in order/turn off button, and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The amazing new feature is the VoiceOver functionality.
Since there is no display on the iPod Shuffle to view the track info, the VoiceOver is talking to you, reading both the title and the artist of each song!
You just have to press and hold the main button.
Moreover with the aid of the VoiceOver, you can listen to your playlist names, and easily select one of them.
iPod Shuffle can be operated and synced via iTunes.
VoiceOver is also multilingual (iTunes detects the song language), here is a quick list of the supported languages: English, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish.
The built-in rechargeable lithium polymer battery lasts about 10 hours when fully charged.
Currently the iPod Shuffle is coming in two colors (silver and black), and costs $79.00.
Well done Apple, yet another cool and innovative gadget!
