It seems that Apple just released their new iPod Shuffle today. VoiceOver seems to be the newest technology other than the new form-factor. They say its half-the-size of the previous one, and has a capacity of 4GB. In terms of color, its currently available in silver or black.
The only thing I’m worried about is that you have to use the built-in controls on the earphones that comes with it (or am I missing something?). That’s actually a pretty big one to weigh out.
That would suck if you’d like to use something else and/or replace it in the future. You won’t be able to Play, Pause, Skip, etc. Anyways, I personally wouldn’t buy this new one and would stick with the previous generation just because of the limitation of having to play songs only through the earphones.
I’m hoping I’m not the only one that finds this as a big concern.
