iPod classic Color Display

There were two iPod classic Color Display models to offer: a 20 GB or 60 GB model. The 60 Gb model was just the renamed version of the iPod Photo with revised software. The changes included the function of bookmarking within the podcast menu and the ability to display colored podcasts artworks. The 20 GB model stepped in place of the previous 20GB standard model and the 30GB iPod photo. Thus Apple merged two iPod lines in one, reasonably dropping the price in the process. That was the double win, for users could get a color-screened model with photo features for a monochrome price. The iPod classic Color Display supported viewing the photos to a music, displaying them on the external display or NV via an AV cable or dock (sold separately). Images from a digital cam can also be viewed on iPod immediately via the iPod Camera Connector (optional).
