Great New Design

on 4/5/2012

I have owned several iPods and I phones. I recently purchased a previous model nano because I missed the feel of the click wheel on my original iPod. Unfortunately, that nano went missing and so I had to decide whether to buy another previous model click wheel nano, or embrace the new touch model. I took the plunge and fully expected to return this new model. But then I opened it and the controls just work. The new touch menu system is faster than the old wheel. It's size is unreal. The square screen is perfect for album art. Yes, it did loose some features but I was ok with that because the video camera and microphone was always poor quality. It also doesn't play videos, but seriously, with the small screen, video has always been useless on the Nano. If you don't like the trade offs then look elsewhere. But if you want an an incredibly small and intuitive audio player, this is it. I think this is really what the iPod Nano should be.

Screen is small.

on 5/23/2012

You can do all the research you would like for the new iPod nano but none of it will prepare you for just how small it really is. The clip is convenient, the colors are neat, and the new internal technologies are fun, but don't expect to operate it perfectly each time. Be sure to physically see one before you purchase it.

Product Overview

Tilt or turn iPod nano on its side, and you'll listen, watch, and play in new ways. You can flip through your album art with cover flow. Or, vertically speaking, see more albums and artists on the screen at one time. Pull hundreds of photos from your pocket and share them wherever you go. Hold iPod nano upright and see your photos in portrait view. Turn it on its side to see them in landscape. Your photos look beautiful in their proper aspect ratio on the vibrant display. Sometimes, people could all use a little unpredictability. And now you can shake to shuffle your music. Just give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. You'll always be surprised by what you'll hear.
