Apple and U2's relationship is only warming up, multiple source say. The band has already released its new single initially exclusively through the iTunes Music Store, threatened to release the entire album through iTunes if it leaks early, and recorded a 2-minute commercial for Apple. Up next: a U2-edition iPod, tipsters say.
While Think Secret has been unable to confirm this with one-hundred percent certainty, sources say that Apple is planning to release the U2-edition iPod around the week of November 21, when U2's new album will hit stores. For a small premium over the regular iPod, said to be around $30, the U2-edition iPod will feature a distinctive enclosure and will come pre-loaded with all the band's major album releases.
