The third-generation iPod Shuffle is nearly half the size of the previous model, but it’s the player’s new VoiceOver feature that has everyone talking. With the added functionality, you just press a button to have the Shuffle speak aloud the name of a song, artist, or playlist. The iPod’s voice can even tell you how much life is left in your battery. It speaks 14 different languages, too: English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

The new Apple iPod Shuffle has an updated aluminum look, available in either silver or black, along with a built-in stainless steel clip. It has a 4GB capacity (about 1,000 songs) and an estimated battery life of about 10 hours. The new iPod Shuffle is selling for $79 and is available now.
