Latest Apple ipod model

Apple iPod photoThe Apple iPod photo (30 GB) effectively is the same as the previously introduced ipod photo(40/60) but uses a thinner housing and a smaller hard drive.

It uses a 30 GB 4200 RPM ATA-66 hard drive, capable of supporting "up to" 7,500 songs in "128-Kbps AAC format", as well as many as 25,000 photographs in iPod viewable format.

Although Apple considers this model to be a member of the ipod(4g) series -- and it shares the "ClickWheel" for navigation and the same basic case design (with an "iBook white" front and a chromed stainless steel back) -- it has a two inch diagonal 65,536 color LCD with an LED backlight, like the earlier iPod photo model.

It supports viewing photographs, optionally with synchronized music, on the internal display and on a television or projector using an AV cable via the custom headphone jack that is capable of video output (line out and S-video provided by the dock, which along with the AV cable, was sold separately).

It offers up to 15 hours of music playback and 5 hours of slideshows with music, although when compared to the iPod (4G), the skip protection is reduced from 25 minutes to 17 minutes.

Unlike the first revision of the original iPod photo model, the iPod photo (30 GB) is capable of immediately viewing many types of images transferred through the optional iPod Camera Connector (US$29).

  1. This latest version works great. The song limit is huge and the battery back up is amazing. I would like to know its price.
