Briefly: Special edition (RED) iPod expected tomorrow
October 12, 2006 - Apple and Bono have teamed up to launch a special edition (RED) iPod nano, which will be unveiled tomorrow during Bono's appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show, according to widespread reports. The launch comes one month after Think Secret tipsters first said a deal for a (RED) iPod was close to being completed.

The iPod nano is said to be a 4GB model that is wrapped in a special red case and priced at the same $199 as other 4GB iPod nanos. $10 of each sale will be going to Bono's AIDS-awareness charity, (RED), which passes the funds on to The Global Fund, an organization that helps women and children affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa.

The launch of the iPod will represent one of the first (RED) products to be available to customers outside the United Kingdom, where special (RED) American Express cards and Motrola SLVR phones are available, among other items.
