Introduced in September 2007, the iPod classic was part of a brand differentiation of the iPod line. The iPod classic was to be apple's larger, high-capacity model, while other flash-based iPods introduced at the same time would be smaller, thinner, and (in the case of the iPod touch) offer increased connectivity. The iPod classic came in an all-metal case, with either a black or matte silver front-face, and featured a new two-pane OS, which featured Cover Flow, along with other user interface enhancements. The iPod classic was available in two capacities: the 80GB model sold for $249, and the 160GB model sold for $349. Both models were replaced in September 2008 by the iPod classic (120 GB).
