>> Hey I'm Donald Bell senior editor for digital audio MP3 here at CNET and today we're taking a first look at the new Apple iPod Classic. It really is identical in form factor to the fifth generation video iPod. The main difference is that it's thinner for the capacity that you get. Right now, I've got the 80 gigabyte iPod Classic and the 30 gigabyte fifth generation iPod. And they're about the same width. So, the new graphic user interface that's shared by both the iPod Classic and the iPod Nano lets you see your files in a split screen view. The other cool thing about the iPod Classic and the iPod Nano is that now you can go inside the music menu and access the cover flow mode that lets you browse your music collection. You can also browse your music collection using the list mode. But the cover flow mode is just a cooler looking way to do it. It's not anymore functional, it's not any quicker, it's just more entertaining. Another reason to go with the iPod Classic over the iPod Nano is that it's going to be a much better portable video player for you. It's a 2.5 inch screen versus the two inch screen. It's gonna be the same resolution three 320 by 240. One disappointment we did notice about the iPod Classic is that it's done away with the video iPod's ability to use the headphone jack as a video output. So, you can't plug in a ten dollar AV mini jack cable into the headphone jack and connect this up out of the box to your television. The iPod classic is available in either black or silver. It comes in either an 80 gigabyte capacity a 249 dollars or a 160 gigabyte capacity for 349 dollars. I'm Donald Bell and that was a first look at the iPod Classic. ^M00:01:41 [ Music ]
