Apple unveils new 1GB iPod nano at $149

Apple today unveiled a new 1GB iPod nano for just $149, essentially a 2GB nano sans half the flash memory, as first rumored in December.

The new 1GB iPod nano is thinner than a #2 pencil and features Apple's patent pending Click Wheel and the same color screen as the other iPod nano models. Each 1GB iPod nano holds up to 240 songs or 15,000 photos.

In addition, Apple also announced that it is reducing the price of its 512MB and 1GB iPod shuffle to $69 and $99 respectively.

"Now everyone can afford an iPod nano, with our new 1GB model starting at just $149," said Greg Joswiak, Apple's vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. "The iPod is the world's most popular digital music player with over 40 million sold, and now even more music lovers can experience the unrivaled combination of iPod and iTunes."

Pricing and Availability

The 1GB white and black models of iPod nano for Mac or Windows are available worldwide immediately for a suggested retail price of $149 (US), through the Apple Store, Apple's retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. All iPod nano models include earbud headphones, a USB 2.0 cable, case and a CD with iTunes for Mac and Windows computers.
