Oprah Winfrey and U2 frontman Bono took away any surprise of Apple's new iPod announcement as the pair went shopping today in Chicago and purchased 10 red iPod nanos. Of course, Apple doesn't have a red nano yet, but according to the Chicago Tribune a red nano will be introduced this week - at this point in the week, that must today.
Apple is introducing the nano as part of the Product Red campaign, which supports African AIDS relief. Sales of products and clothes bearing the label will go towards assisting the relief effort.
Apple last updated the iPod nano on 12 September during a special event in San Francisco. The iPod nanos are made from an aluminium enclosure that comes in several colours - blue, pink, green, silver and black. The 2GB nano comes in silver only, the 8GB model is available only in black, while the 4GB nano will be available in silver, pink, green and blue.
There was no information available on the capacity of the red iPod nano.
