iPod shuffle 3G follow-up articles and reviews

Macworld’s Jason Snell answers some of the questions some of us might have about the new iPod shuffle, like: what’s the story behind removing the controls (something to do with the iPhone) or what will happen to audiobooks and podcasts when loaded into the shuffle (they’ll have their own playlists) or there are no pictures of the bottom of the iPod shuffle, so what does it look like? You have to read the rest of the article to know the answer to the last question. Besides, it’s worth the read.

In the meantime, iLounge and AppleInsider has posted unboxing photos if you want to see more 3G iPod shuffle goodness. iLounge includes a first look review on the new iPod.

Two prominent tech journalists have already reviewed the 3G iPod shuffle and they were fairly positive in their reviews. The downsides, according to Walt Mossberg, include the decrease in claimed battery life to 10 hours, 2 hours less than the previous generation, the difficulty in using third-party earphones because of the lack of control, and the tediousness of having to listen to the iPod enumerate all your playlists if you have stuffed a lot of them into the shuffle .

Edward Baig from USA Today shared the same sentiment with Mossberg with regards to the Apple Earphones and the shortened battery life. He did say he got an hour more than the claimed 10 hour battery life during his tests.
