iPod Clasic - AKA the 6th Generation iPod. The iPod Classic is part of the continued evolution of the original iPod line that began in 2001. It is Apple's core portable music and video player.
The iPod Classic replaced the iPod Video, or 5th generation iPod, in Fall 2007. It was renamed the iPod Classic to distinguish it from other new iPod models introduced at the time, including the iPod touch.
The iPod Classic plays music, audiobooks, and videos, and adds the CoverFlow interface to the standard iPod line. The CoverFlow interface debuted on Apple's portable products on the iPhone in summer 2007.
While the original versions of the iPod Classic offered 80 GB and 120 GB models, they were later replaced by the 160 GB model, which is now the only iPod Classic available.
