New iPod fails to include radio

The new iPod will not include a digital radio, despite recent press rumours. The lack of news comes as Apple announced they will "refresh or replace every product in the iPod lineup", Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple told journalists moments ago in San Francisco.

Apple launched the first iPod 6 years ago, and it has always been said the simple addition of a radio would make so much difference to the product. An add-on has been available to bring FM radio to the iPod for a few years.

One of the most common complaints about the iPod is that it lacks a simple radio.

[link=,,2162894,00.html]Newspapers[/link] and [link=]online[/link] blogs all suggested digital radio would be part of the new iPod.

In other news, the iPod nano gets smaller with more memory for the same price, the original iPod becomes the Classic iPod and the new iPod "Touch" has the option of a 160GB hard drive, space for 40,000 songs, Wi-Fi with Apple's web browser Safari built in, and the ability to download and purchase songs from iTunes via the internet.
