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 (4G)

What Hi-Fi?
22 February 2009
  • Excerpt: You can see why Apple has gone for a new-look nano. In theory, what isn't there to like about a scaled-down version of the iPod Touch? In the flesh, and in any one of seven different colours, the Nano looks cool. It's 46 per cent smaller and 42 per cent lighter than its predecessor – not that the previous generation was a handful… Think of it as a slightly larger iPod Shuffle with a touchscreen – it even has a clip on the rear.
  • Pros: Cute looks, clear, crisp display, exciting, entertaining sound
  • Cons: Not as intuitive as other Apple products, poor headphones, no video

Despite its new design, the fourth-generation iPod Nano is more of an evolutionary step than a major overhaul.

  • Summary: If you are looking for a new media player, the fourth-generation iPod Nano certainly merits consideration, but if you already own an Nano — especially a third-generation one — you may want to think twice before upgrading.
  • Pros: Very slim and lightweight, supports voice recording
  • Cons: No FM tuner, must be turned sideways for video viewing

4G iPod nano review

PC Advisor
9 November 2008
  • Summary: The new iPod nano leaves behind the shorter, wider shape of the third-generation (3G) model to embrace the taller, slimmer profile of the nanos of old - even slimmer, in fact, than those older models.

Expert Review

1 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Der neue Ipod Nano 4 ist da. Videofunktion, 2 Zoll großem Display.Apple ist zwar aufgrund seines großen Displays ein ganzes Stück breiter geworden, dafür aber jetzt deutlich kürzer. Der Ipod Nano der 3. Generation verfügt über jede Menge neue Feature und ein grafisch und funktionell noch besser durchdachtes Bedienkonzept, so dass er mit exzellenten Ergebnissen in Sachen Handhabung glänzen kann.
  • 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
