Apple has announced that its iPod shuffle is now priced at $49 and that it is introducing a new 2GB model of the iPod shuffle for $69.
The iPod shuffle is half a cubic inch in volume, weighs half an ounce, features an aluminum design with a built-in clip and comes in five colors – silver, blue, green, purple and a RED special edition.
“At just $49, the iPod shuffle is the most affordable iPod ever,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. “The new 2GB model lets music lovers bring even more songs everywhere they go in the impossibly small iPod shuffle.”
The $49 1GB iPod shuffle is available immediately through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while the 2GB iPod shuffle will be available later this month for a suggested price of $69.
