Apple iPod shuffle and classic might get the axe this year

Scuttlebutt going around the web says that Apple might be planning to kill off a couple of the iPods in its lineup that have been around for a long time.

Apparently on the last earnings call Apple dropped a mention that there would be a product transition. What products would be in transition weren't specified on the call. I think many of us though the talk was of the new iPhone 5.

Creative Zen Stone Plus giving Apple even more troubles

So first, the Zen Stone came out from Creative, and the fact that it wasn’t an Apple product, combined with the fact that it was the same size, with similar functionality as the Shuffle, and it was slightly cheaper, well that was enough to help the original model sell a good number of units. Well now it appears Creative is besting Apple’s Shuffle in more areas than price.

In fact they are fixing one of the few flaws of the shuffle, the lack of a screen for navigational purposes. Then they are upping the storage to iPod Nano levels with 4GB for the Zen Stone Plus.

Apple iPod Shuffle Seeing RED

So they have the possible iPhone-like iPod being announced, a fat Nano that might rear its ugly head, and then what about the Shuffle? Well instead of leaving it well enough alone they are going to add the player to the PRODUCT (RED) line, so it’s a win-win, Apple doesn’t have to leave any of its line of players out of the announcement and they get to do some charity work.

iPod Shuffle Wristwatch

The iPod Shuffle hasn’t received too much love from case manufacturers. Most likely due to the fact that the integrated clip leads one to infer that it doesn’t need a case.
