With the press of a button, says Apple, you can play, pause, adjust volume, and switch playlists. Also, the VoiceOver feature lets iPod shuffle speak song titles, artists, and playlist names. 

The iPod shuffle is now available worldwide in a new 2GB model for $59 and a 4GB model for $79. Both models come in silver, black, pink, blue, and green.
