Apple's new redesigned iPod Shuffle is now available in the stores after a week Apple announced. With Apple's Voiceover technology, iPod shuffle is made for those who want to enjoy music with no hassle of navigation. This absolutely compact music player with aluminum body is free from any display. Yet, the colorful stylish iPod shuffle takes care of you, choosing songs, musics randomly and uses VoiceOver technology to tell you the the title or the artist just by a press of VoiceOver button on the top of iPod Shuffle.
iPod shuffle speaks over 25 different languages so you hear VoiceOver titles & artists in your native languages. Currently iPod Shuffle is available with capacity of 2GB which is enough to load your favorite play list and music collections along with battery life upto 10 hours.
“We’re making the iPod shuffle even better by combining clickable buttons and VoiceOver technology, so users can find and enjoy their music without ever looking at their iPod shuffle. With its all-aluminum enclosure and built-in clip the new iPod shuffle is a great workout companion, and at just $49 it's a great entry-level iPod that almost everyone can afford.” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
iPod shuffle has a full size play/pause button even larger than the previous models, so you don't need to ever look at player. The flip button on the top features three modes : random playing, orderly playing and shuffle off.

Apple iPod Shuffle's 2GB model is now available in the Apple Store, Apple's Retail Store, and Apple Authorized Resellers with a price tag of 49USD (approx. 2300 INR).
I think with lack of display iPod Shuffle is highly priced. But if you listen to songs without bothering about the tracks then iPod Shuffle is for you.
