About half the size of the original Shuffle, the new half-cubic-inch iPod contains 1 Gbyte of flash memory that holds up to 240 songs.
Apple Computer Corp. said Tuesday it will have the new iPod shuffle digital music player in stores Nov. 3.
When the new compact design was announced in mid-September, Apple said it would make the device available in October.
About half the size of the original shuffle, the new half-cubic inch iPod contains 1 GB of flashmemory that holds up to 240 songs. It weighs half an ounce and features an aluminum design with built-in clip, making small enough to wear.
The shuffle offers up to 12 hours of battery life and is based on Apple's shuffle feature that lets music fans serve up a continuous mix of their favorite songs anywhere they go.
The iPod lets users enjoy songs randomly, or flip a switch to listen to songs in order.
Connect the iPod shuffle to a Mac or a PC with the included dock, and the iTunes AutoFill feature syncs songs from their music library.
