Apple Computer, maker of the uber-popular iPod digital media player, on Tuesday said that though it missed its originally planned October launch date for its second-generation iPod shuffle, it will release the product on Nov. 3, Macworld.uk.com reports.

Apple first unveiled the updated iPod shuffle—as well as new versions of its video iPod and iPod nano—at a September company event in San Francisco.
The second-gen iPod shuffle will be available via Apple retail stores, Apple’s Web store, and through authorized resellers within a week, Macworld.co.uk reports.
At half the size and weight of the original iPod shuffle, the 1GB, aluminum-bodied device is the smallest iPod Apple offers. It doesn’t have a screen for viewing content, but it does include a clip for attaching to belts or other pieces of clothing, as well as an increase in battery life to 12 hours, according to Macworld.co.uk.
It will sell for about $79.
