Seeing Red (nano)

Red iPod nano.For
those fashion forward folks who like bright colors, Apple has released a 4GB special edition nano
in RED.
The technical specifications appear to be similar, if not the same, to
the other 4BG nanos but the difference is Apple will donate $10 of the
purchase price to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. The
special edition nano is associated with Bono, leader of the rock band
U2 and his fight against the disease.

According to the press

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria was established in 2002, with the
support of the world’s leaders and UN Secretary General Kofi
Annan, to dramatically increase resources to fight three of the
world’s most devastating diseases, and to direct those
resources to areas of greatest need by supporting locally-driven
strategies. To date, the Global Fund has committed $5.2 billion (US) to
more than 363 programs in 131 countries. For more information about
