Apple calls the new shuffle the World's smallestdigitalmusicplayer. With 0.5 cubic inch (8.19cm3) (without the clip) I need to agree it is the world's smallest portable audio player.
For me an important distinction is though that the iPod shuffle does not have a display.
So comparing the shuffle to the MobiBlu Cube DAH-1500i is not a valid comparison. The MobiBlu Cube (volume: 13,82cm3) is still the world's smallest audio player featuring a display (something many consider as essential). It is actually amazing that Apple sold 10 million of the most simplistic music player out there so far. The new iPod shuffle actually looks cool and the clip design is great. At $79 it is also priced low enough to clip this audio player anywhere. More details on the Apple iPod shuffle product page.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
