iPod ShuffleWhile the iPod Shuffle is great (I will be buying one soon) I think that Apple should have made it with an LCD display since other flash players have them. One good example is the Teac MP 200 which is available in the EU (not sure about the US). This Teac player has a beautiful “full graphic Organic LED / Panel 128 x 64 dots Featuring 4 line / 2 color OLED display” in a (almost)similar compact design and it looks great. Read More…

With the display you can see the currently playing artist and song as well as search for any song stored on the player. If Teac (and many others) can then why can’t Apple make a flash player with a built-in display even if the display is less than 4 lines and only 1 color?
Of course, this first version of the iPod Shuffle will be popular but I think that consumers will want a second version of the iPod Shuffle with a display, if Apple wants to keep selling them for more than two years. I really hope to see the next version of the iPod Shuffle with some sort of a display.
I currently own an iPod mini and will still buy the iPod Shuffle so i can use it for working out and sports. Speaking of which, I wish Apple would release an iPod mini with a color display, I think that it would be easy on the eyes, but that’s probably too much wishing at once, huh?
