At today's press event
, Steve Jobs announced a full revamp of the iPod line. The new iPod shuffle
is smaller than the 2nd generation device and brings back something that many users missed with the previous model. Specifically, buttons!
The new shuffle has a familiar-looking click wheel on the small postage-stamp shaped model that was introduced a few years ago. It will hold 15 hours of music, is available in 4 colors and sells for US$49. As of this writing,
availability has not been announced
. The iPod shuffle, and all models introduced today, will go on sale (pre-orders) today, with expected delivery next week.
We'll have more on this and the rest of today's announcements all day long.
