The only remaining fourth generation, "Clickwheel" iPod with a monochrome display is now the 20GB model, remaining at $299. Pricing for the 30GB and 60GB iPod photo models, at US$349 and $449 respectively, places them in the same price points as the now-discontinued $399 40GB iPod.
Industry sources have confirmed the new 30GB iPod is using Toshibais new one-platter hard drive. As a result, the new model is thinner and lighter compared to the 40GB model, which used a two-platter mechanism.
Apple made no additional changes to features or pricing on the special edition, U2 iPod, which remains priced at $349.00.
