Apple Introduces the iPod
12:31 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Apple today introduced the iPod, a digital audio player that sports a 5GB drive, 20-minute skip protection, a FireWire port, and a Lithium-polymer battery that can run up to 10 hours. The device is about the size of a deck of cards, with a width of less than one inch, and weighs a mere 6.5 ounces. A neat feature is its ability to charge via the included power adapter or via FireWire.


Fitting in the palm of your hand, the iPod has a backlit LCD display, and offers support for playlists, ID3 tags, and iTunes 2 (which should be available in early November). The $399 device will be available on November 10. Here's some more PR on it:

When you first plug iPod into your Mac, all of your iTunes songs and playlists are automatically downloaded into iPod at blazing FireWire speed. Then, when you add new music or rearrange playlists in iTunes, simply plug iPod back in and it's automatically updated in seconds. It simply doesn't get any easier or faster than this. You can download an entire CD in less than 10 seconds, or 1,000 songs in under 10 minutes. Plus, iPod automatically charges whenever you’re connected and your Mac is on.


The Apple Store is currently accepting pre-orders for the iPod.
