Apple iPod Nano 16GB Review
22 September 2008
Conclusion: Overall, we’re pretty satisfied with the new nano, even though it’s nowhere near as sexy as the newly revamped iPod touch . And on a small, dedicated audio player that’s focused on slim design and pocketability, we don’t feel too slighted that the nano lacks wireless features like the Zune,...
Pros: Thin design; very good AV quality; useful new features
Cons: Lacks wireless features; no custom EQ; mediocre battery life
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.
Conclusion: The newly “remastered” iPod nano is yet another awesome product from Apple. The new design is a refreshing change from the scratch-prone and fingerprint-attracting construction of the original iPod nano.
Pros: Much improved design;24 hour battery;
Cons: 2GB available only in silver; 8GB only available in black
Conclusion: Well, what can we say? Apple has done it again, and has surpassed all of our expectations. The nano is a very attractive little player that has features you would expect from a much larger and more expensive unit.
Pros: Attractive design; small size; color screen; exceptional sound
Excerpt: Like the iPhone 4S, the updated iPod nano is a subtle enhancement of a much-loved predecessor, rather than a revolutionary tear-down. In fact, only the software has been modified, and by plugging in and updating, owners of the 2010/2011 nano will be able to get all of the upgrades featured here.
