Apple has introduced a new iPod U2 Special Edition as part of its continued partnership with U2 and Universal Music Group (UMG).

The new U2 iPod is effectively a fifth generation 30GB iPod that’s capable of video play back with an all-black stainless steel enclosure, red Click Wheel and engravings of the band member’s signatures.

U2 iPod customers will also get a 30 minute exclusive U2 video as a free download from the iTunes Music Store. It costs £239 (including VAT).

“We’re thrilled to continue working with one of the greatest bands in the world to bring U2 fans a special edition of the world’s best digital music player,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of worldwide iPod Product Marketing. “With its distinctive new design, including an all-black stainless steel enclosure, the new U2 iPod is sure to be a hit.”
