Apple iPod nano (4th generation)

PC Magazine
29 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Apple's slimmed-down, slicker-than-ever iPod nano responds to your movements, creates playlists it thinks you'll like, and makes the competition look like a bunch of clunkers.
  • Pros: Sexy, thin, rounded design. Same excellent user interface as in previous nanos. Built-in accelerometer shifts screen for horizontal viewing (like on the iPhone and iPod touch) and lets you shuffle songs by shaking the player. Genius feature creates on-the-go playlists around a single song.
  • Cons: No built-in mic—you need to upgrade earbuds to use the integrated voice recorder. Apple hasn't upgraded those lame bundled earbuds.

Apple iPod nano (4th Generation) 8GB Review

19 November 2008
  • Conclusion: We're in the fourth generation now so it's easy to lose sight of the understated marvel here. Although a different experience from the second-gen iPod touch , launched concurrently, the 4th generation iPod nano is a serious entertainer in its own right, somehow packing more functionality than ever into an impossibly slender device.
  • Pros: Feels amazing in the hand, with one-thumb click-wheel control, Unique new convenience (and coolness) features
  • Cons: Battery life slightly shorter for video than previous generation, Some might squint at video on the two-inch screen

Apple iPod Nano 8GB (4G) Review

22 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Apple’s latest iPod nano continues to loom over the heads of its competitors despite players with better sound and more features from companies like Sony and Microsoft. The redesigned body almost seems like a brush of nostalgia, though it definitely improves on the previous generation and keeps the device current.
  • Pros: Thin design; very good AV quality; useful new features
  • Cons: Lacks wireless features; no custom EQ; mediocre battery life

A review of the 4G iPod nano

Ars Technica
17 September 2008
  • Conclusion: As an Apple-made portable media device, the 4G iPod nano is quite solid—surprisingly so, given the fact that half the world has already moved on to the iPhone and iPod touch. But the new nano gives potential buyers—including many of our own readers and forum posters—a reason to think of ways to work a nano back into their lives. One for the gym? Sure. An iPod exclusively for the car? Go for it.

4th Gen iPod Nano — We Want Our Square Form Factor Back!

12 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Here’s a hard truth: Even if Apple decided to carve its new Nano out of petrified poo and bless it with a Braille display, the interface alone would still make Cupertino’s latest flash-based music player leagues better than the competition. So what’s our opinion of the new Nano? Well, it’s just like the old Nano, just a little roomier (fine) and shaped like an airfoil (weird).
  • Pros: Enough colors to make you second guess dropping that third hit of acid before hitting the Apple store. Up to 16 gigs of storage. On the fly Genius (should be called Lazy) Playlists let you quickly suit your music mood. Energy saver mode is clutch. 8 gigs for 150 bones is our kind of upgrade.
  • Cons: Why no love for the squarePod? Shake-to-shuffle is a nightmare during parkour outings; switching off the much-needed French Hip Hop in favor of our knitting podcasts whenever jostled. Tapered design is just curvy enough to be fey, but not quite severe enough to be sharpened.
