Apple unveils iPod remote

today unveiled its iPod Radio Remote, combining the convenience of a wired remote control with new FM radio capabilities for the iPod nano and fifth-generation video iPod. The iPod Radio Remote offers music lovers a convenient way to skip tracks and adjust the volume of their iPod, even when it's in a pocket or backpack, and listen to FM radio stations while displaying station and song information on the iPod screen. The iPod Radio Remote includes a pair of Apple headphones with a shorter cable, and is available for $50.

"The iPod Radio Remote combines two great features in one elegant product," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of worldwide iPod product marketing. "The iPod Radio Remote is both the best remote control and the best FM radio listening experience for iPod."

In addition to the iPod Radio Remote and the over 2,000 accessories designed for iPod are the iPod AV Connection Kit and the new iPod nano In-Ear Lanyard Headphones. The iPod AV Connection Kit includes everything needed to connect the iPod to a TV for watching photo slideshows and video, or a stereo system for listening to music, and charges the device. The iPod nano In-Ear Lanyard Headphones combine the features of the iPod nano Lanyard Headphones and the Apple In-Ear Headphones.

The iPod AV Connection Kit includes an iPod Universal Dock, an Apple Remote, an iPod AV cable, an iPod dock connector to USB 2.0 cable and an iPod USB power adapter, and is compatible with all iPod models with a dock connector for $100.

The iPod nano In-Ear Lanyard Headphones will be available for $50 and include three different sized caps to ensure the headphones fit securely.
