The player is still the tiniest one on the market, so if you're prone to misplacing things, it's probably not the best option. Also, there's still no physical controls on the Shuffle--something to keep in mind.
Despite rumors that suggested Apple would kill off the iPod Classic, this iconic MP3 player is still holding on strong. It's now thinner than before and continues to be available in silver and black versions.
Surprisingly, the iPod Nano is the device to get the most extensive updates from Apple, not the least of which is a built-in camera with an integrated mic and the capability to take both still and video shots.
Perhaps the most exciting thing is that Apple finally broke down and added an FM radio to an iPod. This, combined with the integrated pedometer make the iPod Nano a top contender in the realm of fitness-friendly MP3 players. Definitely a smart move on Apple's part.
Now more than ever, Apple is touting the iPod Touch as a gaming device, stating affordability of the games (apps) as the thing that could edge the player ahead of devices such as the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS.
