10/24/2001 07:52:00 AM Eastern

Cupertino, Calif. - Apple yesterday unveiled the iPod, the company's first portable digital music player.

The cellphone-size iPod uses an internal 5GB hard drive to store up to 1,000 songs and connects and can download an entire CD though a Firewire port in less than 10 seconds. The lithium battery can play for 10 hours on one charge and the device is equipped with a small, backlit LCD.

The iPod, which will only work in conjunction with a Macintosh computer using its iTunes music software, will hit stores on Nov. 10 with a $399 suggested retail price.

The iPod can play back MP3, MP3 VBR, AIFF and WAV formats and it can act as a portable storage device allowing users to store non-music data on the hard drive which can be downloaded onto a Mac through the iPod's docking station.
