Announced in July 2004, the iPod (Click Wheel) was thinner, lighter, and cheaper than its predecessor. It also featured a redesigned hardware interface, based on the successful Click Wheel interface used for the iPod mini. Battery life was also dramatically improved, thanks to the use of a PortalPlayer PP5020 System-on-a-chip, which was much less power-hungry than the PP5002 used in previous players. The iPod (Click Wheel) was available in two models: a 20 GB model sold for $299, while a 40 GB model was available for $399. In February 2005, the 40 GB model was dropped, and the price of the 20 GB model was cut to $249.
