The sophisticated third-generation Shuffle has some innovative features, but they take getting used to.

Manufacturer’s Description

The 3rd Generation iPod shuffle is jaw-droppingly small. It's half the size of the previous generation. Yet there's room for so much more. With 4GB of storage, it now holds up to 1,000 songs, and lets you enjoy multiple playlists, too. Introducing VoiceOver, the feature that gives iPod shuffle a voice. With the press of a button, it tells you what song is playing and who's performing it. It can even tell you the names of your playlists, giving you a different way to navigate your music.
