Apple iPod Nano 3rd Generation MP3 Player Review
5 February 2009
Summary: Audio and Video Quality
Apple includes a set of headphones, ear buds really. They are better than most sets of headphones that you see with MP3 players. They are nothing to rave about though, they get the job done. Apple has kept with the white design on their headphones that made them very popular in the first place. Audio quality on the Nano is great. You don’t need to turn the volume way up to hear music.
Pros: Slick design, 2inch 320 x 240 QVGA screen, Very easy to operate, 6 different color choices, Price
Excerpt: (1 items) The release of the iPod touch complicates the larger "Which iPod should I buy?" question. But when it comes to traditional iPods, the decision has never been easier. For those without huge iTunes libraries--or people who don't mind managing which part of their library to take with them--the nano is a clear winner.
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. It’s decided to squash the Nano, making it shorter and wider, resulting in a far larger display.
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. And it's reasonably priced too: the silver-only 4GB model is priced at AU$199 and the 8GB model, available in silver, black, blue, green and PRODUCT(RED), is AU$279.
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 ...
