That looks more like concept art for an iPod nano. The whole point of a shuffle, even since the first generation, was to be a screenless, tiny, portable, and inexpensive music player for on-the-go people. Meanwhile, the nano was designed for portability but also versatility and storage.

The entire point of the Shuffle was for the purpose of playback. You did not need to see what you were playing, only hear it.
If you must know what song you are playing, or is coming up next. Or must have that control or choice then go get a player designed with that in mind.
That was not the idea of the Shuffle, which did exactly as its name implied. Shuffles your music, and it did that just fine.

if you are not getting a ipod touch or iphone, why go with an apple product for just music?
there are many companies who make mp3 players with more features and more storage for less money
$25 well spend
