The iPod Classic U2 Special Edition is identical to the 20 GB configuration of the iPod 4th gen with Color Display in hardware, but has a special edition case featuring a black front, a stainless steel back with laser etched signatures of the U2 band members, and a red ClickWheel. 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 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).
