    A delight for the ears. A feast for the eyes. Though it’s no bigger than a pack of playing cards and weighs in at just over 6 ounces, iPod Photo delivers a one-two sensory punch. Letting you carry an entire library of your favorite music — up to 15,000 songs — or enough photos — as many as 25,000 — to fill nearly 200 slide trays or cover nearly 5,000 square feet of wall space. Got a really big den?

    The newest member of the iPod family, iPod Photo comes in two sizes: a 40GB model, available for $499, and a capacious 60GB model that sells for $599. Both feature a razor sharp LCD display that lets you see your photos in vivid color — 65,536 colors, to be exact. And with its built-in backlighting, you’ll be able to admire those photos indoors or out.

    I actually might buy one now, if only it had a way to transfer off the media itself.

    What's the point in having them uncompressed on such a small screen anyway? I think it's a good thing to downsize the images before the transfer.

    Anyone who has ever owned an iPod would take that as an insult. The iPod is by far the coolest and most used piece of electronic equipment I have. I often use it for listening to my music while I'm out taking pictures.

    I think the next version will have a net connection and that would be helpful for journalists and pros who are in the field. That would be a cool idea.

    This happened to me, and for it, I will hate ipods for the rest of my life... I did a little researching, and I found that they use the same batteries for the ipod Photo that they did for the normal iPods. Which means that this same problem will still be there, and the thing will not hold a charge after 18 months.
