Apple Ipod Nano – Big Design in a Small Package

Tags: ,

If you haven’t seen Apple’s newly designed iPod Nano yet, you need to do yourself a favor and check it out. My girlfriend gave me one this weekend and I’m really impressed with how it takes famous iPod features and slims them down into the smallest iPod with video and pictures.

From a design standpoint, the nano has the staple reflective metal backing. It’s super thin at 6.5mm–only a bit thicker than a book of matches. When you hold it in your hand, it has a nice feel to it. It’s got some weight so it doesn’t feel too light or cheaply made.

Other features that the Nano takes from its bigger iPod relatives are the scroll wheel, buttons and menu. Also there’s the Cover Flow feature, that lets you scroll through your music by album covers. The display is 320 x 240 and is supposedly 65% brighter than before. I really noticed the brightness when I found that a picture that looked a bit dark on my Macbook Pro actually looked clear and bright on the iPod nano.

The video this little demon can handle is pretty impressive, too. Very clear and easy to see. Overall, I’d definitely recommend the Nano for someone who wants a bit more features than the iPod shuffle, but doesn’t want to spend as much for the iPod Classic or Touch. The Nano comes in six colors and you can choose from either the 4 gig or 8 gig model. 4 gigs is plenty for me.

Where To Buy

Amazon.com- from $138.54 for the 4 gig model

  1. Thanks for the comment on my site. Unfortunately, I accidently deleted it. It usually takes me between 6 and 12 hours to make a map, and it’s text accompaniment.
