Apple has announced that its iPod Shuffle, which the company claims as the world’s most wearable music player is now even more affordably priced at $49 (1GB; dropped from $79). In addition, the company also will add a new 2GB version of its iPod shuffle later this month for $69.


“At just $49, the iPod shuffle is the most affordable iPod ever,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. “The new 2GB model lets music lovers bring even more songs everywhere they go in the impossibly small iPod shuffle.”
