Apple released a new wired remote control and FM tuner for the iPod, dubbed the iPod Radio Remote, at Macworld Expo Tuesday.
The iPod Radio Remote is designed to add FM radio capabilities as well as remote control operations to the iPod nano and iPod with video. The remote lets users skip tracks, adjust the volume, and listen to FM stations. The wired remote can be used while the iPod is stored in a pocket or even a backpack, and does not require line-of-sight. The iPod Radio Remote, which plugs into the iPod’s dock connector also includes a pair of Apple headphones with a shorter cable, and will begin shipping immediately for $49.
