About This iPod
The Apple iPod shuffle is small and low-cost MP3 player that comes without any display included in its build. The idea behind the device is to reach new demographics while providing a device which is easier to carry while exercising. There is USB support included for charging and data storage. Due to the small nature of the device, it is only able to support 4 GB on its solid-state storage which could take up to 1000 songs. This capacity is more than enough for the average user, many having multiple devices from Apple’s portable range.
