Excerpt: When the iPod nano was first released it took a lot of people by surprise. The 2G mini had only been out a few months and despite the fact that is was always the black sheep of the iPod family there was no telling that it would have one of the shortest lifespans of any iPod.
Excerpt: The Good Brilliant display and user interface. Exceptional battery life. Much improved game support. The Bad Initial manufacturing glitches with some units. Chrome shell is a step back from 2G models. Sheds some of its legacy accessory and game support.
Pros: Brilliant display and user interface., Exceptional battery life., Much improved game support.
Cons: Initial manufacturing glitches with some units., Chrome shell is a step back from 2G models., Sheds some of its legacy accessory and game support.
Summary: Despite its shape and size changing dramatically, the new iPod nano still manages to be the best designed player on the market. Under the hood lies an excellent music player, and a capable video player representing great value at this price.
Pros: Excellent interface, brighter and larger display for video playback, anodised aluminium front, improved battery life, Cover Flow feature
Cons: The screen is a little small for comfortable video playback, chrome backing shows scratches and fingerprints easily, small and stubborn hold switch
Summary: See our hands-on video of the iPod nano. Life is full of uncertainties but one thing we were sure of was that the iPod Nano did not need to play video. Surely, video on a device of that size with that screen would have been ludicrous. But with the 3rd generation Nano, Apple has moved the goalposts.
Conclusion: While we're still not bowled over by its looks, by almost every other measure the new nano is a far better device. For the first time you won't have to be a feature pauper to enjoy a compact iPod.
Pros: ... but still not great, New look doesn't appeal to everyone, Video out cables cost AU$79!, Thinner Click Wheel hard to use
Cons: Bigger, brighter screen, Video playback, Cover Flow and preview pane look sweet, Better value than ever, Audio quality much improved ...
Excerpt: Apple har fornyet sin musikkspiller-serie, og vi har prøvd den nest minste i familien, iPod nano. «Musikkspiller» er kanskje et litt for snevert navn på den nye iPod nano, for den håndterer mye mer enn bare musikk.
Excerpt: Der neue Ipod Nano 3 Video ist da. Jetzt mit Videofunktion, 2 Zoll großem Display, dass bis zu 65% heller als das seines Vorgängers ist. Das Multitalent aus dem Hause Apple ist zwar aufgrund seines großen Displays ein ganzes Stück breiter geworden, dafür aber jetzt deutlich kürzer.
Pros: Extrem flach und leicht, Sehr einfach zu bedienen, Sehr viel Zubehör optional erhältlich, Gute Akkulaufzeit
Cons: Musikübertragung nur per Itunes, Kein Adapter für die Steckdose im Lieferumfang
