Early Press Release re: Oct 12!

Apple Introduces Scratch Free iPod nano

APPLE "ONE MORE THING" EVENT, SAN JOSE—October 12, 2005—Apple® today introduced the iPod® diamond nano, an update to its revolutionary full-featured iPod nano. The iPod diamond nano features an ultra-portable, lightweight design with a gorgeous color screen, a micro-thin scratch resistant diamond shield, Apple’s patent pending Click Wheel and the ability to hold 1,000 songs or 25,000 photos. iPod diamond nano works seamlessly with the iTunes® Music Store, the world’s number one digital music service. The iPod diamond nano is available immediately in a 4GB model priced at just $2499 and a 2GB model priced at just $1999, with both models available in stunning white or black diamond designs.

“iPod diamond nano is the biggest revolution since the iPod nano,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPod diamond nano is a full-featured iPod in an impossibly small size, and is completely impervious to scratching. Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man. Now they are part of the iPod revolution."

iPod diamond nano is the perfect combination of innovative design, storage capacity and ease of use. Thinner than a standard #2 pencil and weighing only 1.5 ounces, iPod diamond nano comes in two models—the 4GB iPod nano holds up to 1,000 songs and the 2GB iPod nano holds up to 500 songs. iPod diamond nano features Apple’s innovative Click Wheel for precise, one-handed navigation, and its ultra-portable design fits into even the smallest pocket making it easy to take iPod nano to the gym, in the car, traveling, commuting or anywhere you go. The diamond hard exterior makes the iPod diamond nano the most scratch-resistant iPod ever.

The most fashionable and wearable iPod ever, the iPod diamond nano features optional accessories including lanyard headphones, which integrate the headphone cables into the lanyard, so users can wear their iPod nano around their neck without dangling headphone cables. Optional armbands available in gray, pink, blue, red and green allow users to wear their iPod nano as the ultimate fashion and sports accessory.

Pricing & Availability
The 4GB and 2GB white and black diamond models of iPod nano for Mac or Windows are available worldwide immediately for a suggested retail price of $2499 (US) and $1999 (US) respectively, through the Apple Store® (www.apple.com), Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers. All iPod nano models include earbud headphones, a USB 2.0 cable and a CD with iTunes for Mac and Windows computers.

New optional accessories designed for iPod nano with the following suggested retail prices include: Lanyard headphones for $39 (US), armbands in five colors each for $29 (US), dock for $29 (US) and a set of iPod nano Tubes in five different colors for $29 (US) and will be available within the next 30 days.

iPod nano requires a Mac with a USB 2.0 port and Mac OS® X version 10.3.4 or later and iTunes 4.9 (or later); or a Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port and Windows 2000, XP Home or Professional (SP2) and iTunes 4.9 (or later).

* Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information. Music capacity is based on four minutes per song and 128-Kbps AAC encoding; photo capacity is based on iPod-viewable photos transferred from iTunes.

Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning desktop and notebook computers, OS X operating system, and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital music revolution with its iPod portable music players and iTunes online music store.

As of press time, Black Diamond Canada, maker of fine quality cheeses, was unavailable for comment.

Is this a spoof or a news article with a bunch of typos. $2499 and $1999 for a iPod nano? One too many nines in there, isn't there?

You have me laughing pretty hard over your post . Obviously it is real. I mean come on, this is the only way that ANY iPod could be fully scratch proof right? Apple doesn't want to be known as the company who made products that scratch easily now do they?

I already put my order in for 5 of them. I mean, Christmas is around the corner, you better get your order in quickly before Apple runs out of them at those prices

I'm guessing it is so expensive because of the diamond-made shield that prevents scratching. Very innovative of Apple, if not expensive.

There have been reports of iPods increasing street crime (never mind the poor English as the pods may increase temptation but not the crime..).

This new version could see an explosion of such crime. Luckily third party support has been swift and new convenient cases in several colours have been launched:
Cases for Nano Diamond
A MacPro 2.66 Xeon, an iMac G5, a Uni MB, a wee PowerBook 12" 1.5, an eMac, a couple of cameras, a lens collection and a wonderful iPod. Oh, and a delicious wife.

I hope they come out with a diamond encrusted version I can wear on a big ol' gold chain around my neck. That'd get me all the ladies.... or not.
