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 ...
