iPod Classic 4th Generation (2004) U2 Special Edition

The iPod Classic 4th Generation (2004) U2 Special Edition is identical to the 20 GB configuration of the iPod 4th Generation 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. An “exclusive” U2 poster and a US$50 discount coupon for “The Complete U2” “box set” download came in a bundle. It cost US$30 more. The iPod classic 4th Gen acquired a lot of features from the junior model iPod nano, including: the touch-sensitive scroll wheel with four auxiliary buttons under it; the energy-efficient components, enhancing the battery life for over 12 hours of music playback, while the battery remained as in the previous model. The iPod classic 4th Gen case became thinner of course, while the accessories to go by were cut back by the Apple for some editions.  Initially, the two models were being offered: the 20 Gb model and the 40 Gb model, but later on October 26, 2004, the iPhoto was introduced as the iPod classic 4th Gen premium edition. The device featured a 220 x 176 pixel LCD capable of displaying up to 65,536 colors. It supported JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG graphic file formats, and the users could attach their iPods to TV or other external display for slideshows via a bundled TV cable. (more…)

iPod Mini 2nd Gen 4 Gb, 6 Gb

The iPod mini 2nd Gen is almost identical to the previous model. The casing colors (silver, blue, pink and green but no gold anymore) become richer, the battery life is boosted up to 18 hours as well as the capacity – up to 6 Gb. In every other aspect the iPod mini 2nd Gen remains the tiniest mp3 hard drive player at the time of introduction in the anodized aluminum case, offered in five colors: silver, gold, pink, green and blue. The iPod mini 2nd gen has a grayscale LCD display with LED backlight and a ClickWheel for navigation under which pressure sensitive buttons are hidden. The battery provides up to 18 hours of playback, but unfortunately it is not a user-replaceable one. The iPod mini 2nd gen has also such features as a voice recorder, an alarm clock and some games. As for connectivity, it can also boast an audio out connection for stand-alone powered speakers and a USB-earphone jack dock typical for iPods. Also an armband was being offered as an option but still the player worn that way proved to be too cumbersome for any physical activity. (more…)

The iPod classic Photo 40 Gb and 60 Gb models hit the market in October, 2004, and started the color screen portable players war.

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). (more…)
