The new Apple’s iPod shuffle portable digital media player still lacks screen and now lacks even the well-known Apple’s “wheel”, but it can tell names of tracks and playlists with voice, a feature not available on other music players available today.

“Imagine your music player talking to you, telling you your song titles, artists and playlist names. The amazingly small new iPod shuffle takes a revolutionary approach to how you listen to your music by talking to you, also making it the first iPod shuffle with playlists,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of iPod and iPhone product marketing.

The new VoiceOver feature enables iPod shuffle to speak song titles, artists and playlist names. The third generation iPod shuffle is significantly smaller than a AA battery, holds up to 4GB of music and is easy to use with all of the controls conveniently located on the earphone cord. With the press of a button, users can play, pause, adjust volume, switch playlists and hear the name of the song and artist. iPod shuffle features up to 10 hours of battery life.

The third generation 4GB iPod shuffle is now shipping and comes in silver or black for a suggested price of $79 through the Apple Store, Apple’s retail stores and Apple authorized resellers. iPod shuffle comes with the Apple earphones with remote and the iPod shuffle USB cable.

The fourth generation of the Apple iPod Shuffle is a return to the iconic form that made it a hit from 2006 to 2008. Now it offers a few extra features to keep things interesting. As expected, Apple is keeping things simple with its entry-level iPod, offering it in just one 2GB capacity that are available in 4 colours silver, green, blue, and orange. I love this model because having the volume and play controls on the actual unit is much nicer than having to be constrained to specialty headphones that have the controls on the cord, which if you actually want a comfortable pair you have to buy from a 3rd party, which ultimately adds to your cost.
