Apple iPod shuffle (2G) 1 GB
Advantages: Compact, Stylish, Colourful, Simple
I have an iPod touch which i love to death, but because i'm always paranoid about losing it, i got the ipod shuffle as it wasn't anywhere near as expensive and i wouldn't be too upset if i lost it/broke it while jogging.
I have the pink one, which is stylish, discreet and is a good size (1 inch), for sticking in your pocket or bag. It also has a clip which you can attatch to your clothes, belt or bag, making it ideal for joggers/runners/bikers. I find this clip ideal for when i'm in a rush as it's easily attatchable and stays in place nicely. The intructions included with the item are very simple as is use of the iPod.
Other colours aswell as the pink are also available - blue, orange, grey, purple and green. All are ideal for teenagers or children because of the funky colours. Ofcourse they'd be ideal for anyone but i think that's Apples main market for this product.
Because they're so bright it's easy for people to notice you have one, making it somewhat of a fashion statement for the younger people and altough they're not quite as popular as they used to be since the ipod touch came in, people will usually notice the iPod shuffle and it sometimes even starts conversations!
The 1GB iPod can hold up to 240 songs which really is amazing considering how tiny it is! You can add songs by connecting the device to your computer via a USB cable which is quick and simple. You'll need iTunes downloaded onto your laptop/computer to add songs to your iPod. iTunes is easily available for download if you don't already have it installed. The USB cable is included with the ipod, aswell as a pair of apple headphones which are great.
The battery life is impressive, with upto 12 hours before it runs out - much longer than my iPod touch.
The iPod has a simple, compact design. There are 6 buttons:
1 at the top which is an on/off button
In the middle there's the volume options
On the left and right are the buttons to skip and replay
The circle in the middle is to play/pause
It's extremely easy, again, making it ideal for younger iPod users.
The iPod is well worth the £40 i paid for it. I'd reccomend it to anyone who enjoys bein on the move alot but worries about losing there phone/mp3 player. This is a somewhat cheap product compared to many others and is great for taking out & about with not as much worry about it falling out of your bag or pocket as say an expensive iPhone or iPod touch.
I'd also reccomend it to anyone who has a younger child (obviously over 6/7 as it could be classed as a choking hazard!), who enjoys music and it'd be an ideal first iPod for them to learn to look after and add music to etc before buying them an ipod touch etc.
5/5 - Reccomended :)
Summary: Another Great Quality Apple Product!
