Conclusion: This is the finest flash player out there in terms of look and feel. Other players have the iPod beat in terms of features, but I like the iPod's lossless compression and Audible support, as well as the cool new search feature.
Pros: Sturdy metal casing. Very slim. Bright screen. Supports Audible and lossless compression. Very good sound quality. Cool new search feature. Excellent software integration. Gapless playback. Long battery life.
Cons: No integrated FM tuner, voice recorder, or video playback. Nonremovable battery.
Excerpt: Take everything you love about iPod and shrink it. Now shrink it again. The pencil-thin iPod nano packs the entire iPod experience into an impossibly small design. So small, it will take your music places you never dreamed of.
Excerpt: (1 items) (The following summary applies to all three second-generation iPod nano models.) The second-generation iPod nano is both a welcome step back to the more colorful (and scratch-resistant) days of the iPod mini and a moderate step forward in functionality. This middle-child iPod feels and looks great with its rugged aluminum finish and bright display. Apple's done nice things with power management to allow the nano to play for 24-plus hours on a single charge.
Excerpt: In what could be considered the biggest break-through in recent MP3 player development, the new Apple iPod nano is the first flash player to break the 1GB threshold.

Pros: Attractive design; small size; color screen; exceptional sound
