In September, 2006, a revamped iPod Shuffle, billed as the smallest and most wearable MP3 player in the world, hit the market. It was aluminum, rectangular and less than half the size of the first model. The lanyard gave way to a clip and it, too, became a favorite for working out. It also sported four new colors, like turquoise and mint green. By early 2008, the price of the iPod Shuffle would drop to US$49 for the 1GB model, and US$69 for the 2GB model.
