Apple on Wednesday introduced the next generation iPod shuffle. The shuffle has always been Apple's smallest iPod, but now it is nearly half the size of the previous model.

The new iPod shuffle features VoiceOver, which enables the iPod to speak your song titles, artists and playlist names. The shuffle can speak 14 languages including English, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.

All of the controls for the Shuffle are located on the earphone chord, allow you to play, pause, adjust volume, switch playlists and hear the name of the song and artist. The iPod can also give you information like battery life.

According to Apple, the third generation iPod shuffle is significantly smaller than a AA battery and holds up to 1,000 songs.

The new iPod shuffle comes in silver or black and features a sleek and ultra-wearable design with a built-in stainless steel clip. The shuffle is available immediately and costs $79.
