The new iPod shuffle

The redesigned iPod shuffle

The iPod shuffle has been totally redesigned, and is now the world's smallest MP3 player. There is now only one model, 1G for $79 (£55 inc VAT) with a brushed aluminium finish and an integrated clip. The down side to the redesign is that the shuffle no longer plugs directly into a standard USB port, you need to use the included dock.

Perhaps the biggest redesign coming out of the special event, a make-over for the iPod shuffle was long overdue as the cheap plastic exterior of the old model never really "fit" with Apple's image. The redesigned shuffle won't ship till October.
