iPod shuffle Sept 2008
Amidst its other high-profile announcements, Apple today quietly refreshed the iPod shuffle with new colors. The update swaps out the pale colors from before with five colors largely similar to the early 2007 models in bright blue, green, red, and pink; the red iPod remains a (PRODUCT) RED variant that delivers some of the purchase price to charity and is exclusive to Apple's own online and retail stores.
However, pricing and feature sets remain the same as for the second-generation shuffle since it was introduced in late 2006, and maintain the capacities and prices introduced earlier this year. A 1GB model sells for $49 while a 2GB version is available for $69. Both ship immediately from the online Apple store.
