Apple today announced the iPod nano RED Special Edition. “RED” was created by U2 lead singer Bono and Bobby Shriver to engage business in the fight against AIDS in Africa by getting the world’s most iconic companies to make uniquely branded products. A portion of the profits from these products goes directly to the Global Fund to fund programs for women and children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa. The iPod nano RED comes in a red aluminum enclosure and features 24 hours of battery life, Apple’s innovative Click Wheel and an very thin and light design. Apple will contribute US$10 from the sale of each iPod nano RED to the Global Fund to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. Apple will also offer a $25 iTunes RED gift card available for purchase at Apple’s retail and online stores next month.
