Apple today announced that its iPod shuffle is now even more affordably priced at US$49 and that it is introducing a new 2GB model of the iPod shuffle for $69. The popular iPod shuffle is just half a cubic inch in volume, weighs just half an ounce, features an aluminum design with a built-in clip and comes in five colors-silver, blue, green, purple and a (PRODUCT) RED special edition. The new 1GB iPod shuffle is available immediately and the 2GB iPod shuffle will be available later this month.
