Apple iPod nano (5th Generation)

PC Magazine
19 July 2010
  • Conclusion: No other player offers video recording, but even without it, the iPod nano is still the most graceful device in its price range.
  • Pros: Built-in video camera, mic, and speaker. Larger display, but same-size frame as previous-gen nano. Excellent user interface. New Genius Mix and VoiceOver features. Adds an FM tuner, and a pedometer.
  • Cons: So-so file support. Video camera can't capture still images. Ships with Apple's signature subpar earbuds.

  • Summary: To fit so many new features into a product that's this lithe can only be put down to warlockery. That or some very clever technicians. This is the best nano yet!

The Mighty New iPod Nano

Gear Patrol
7 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Despite a relatively good track record by the Apple rumor mill for predicting the company’s latest breakthrough before its official announcement, today’s details regarding the new iPod Nano came as a refreshing surprise. Contrary to ideas circling the iPod touch (which did receive updates, though less than imagined) Apple instead gave the iPod Nano the majority of love today by adding a video camera & mic , Genius playlisting , radio , voice recording , speaker, and a...

Mobility Digest Review: Apple iPod nano 5th Generation 8GB Review

mobilitydigest.com
3 July 2010
  • Summary: Despite the whole virus thing the new iPod nano 5th isn’t bad at all. I was truly surprised by the decent quality of the video camera, and the larger screen is nice as well. The additional stuff tossed in there I guess can make the nano 5th worthwhile, they are useful if you’re going to use them.
  • Pros: Simple and easy to use, Seems well made, Lots of features, Video camera is actually decent
  • Cons: Comes with virus! (at least mine did), Rather small capacity, No still camera

Apple iPod Nano 8GB (5th Generation) Review

ThinkComputers
14 May 2010
  • Summary: Final Thoughts I actually had the first iPod Nano and it has sure come a long way since then! That iPod only really played music that was it. With this iPod you can play music, movies, listen to the radio, play games, record video, check the time, have a calendar, and even track your steps with the pedometer. It has really evolved over the years to become more than just a simple MP3 player.
  • Pros: Great design, Plays both video and audio, FM tuner, External speaker, Included video camera
  • Cons: None!

iPod nano (5G)

The Mac Observer
6 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The 5th generation iPod nano is easily the best and most feature-packed iteration yet. I'm disappointed that it can't shoot still photos but my only real complaint is the same one I have had for every iPod I've ever reviewed -- the included earphones are still uncomfortable and mediocre. This otherwise excellent little device deserves better.
  • Pros: Great little media player, bigger screen, video recording, FM radio, built-in speaker and microphone, pedometer.
  • Cons: No still photos, mediocre earphones.

Apple iPod nano (Fifth Generation) 16GB Review

BigPictureBigSound
30 October 2009
  • Conclusion: As amazing as all the new features (joining the old, and I'm not aware of any that have been lost along the way) is the simple fact that they manage to fit together inside the same physical space as last year, even with the addition of necessary hardware like cameras and microphones. Sure, the antenna for the FM radio is actually the headphone cord, and the new built-in pedometer in the Fitness menu leverages the already-built-in accelerometer.
  • Pros: An easy-to-use VGA quality camcorder... in an iPod!, FM radio (finally!), with Live Pause and iTunes Tagging, Bigger screen, built-in speaker
  • Cons: Shiny new finish becomes smudged more easily, No still photo capture with the video camera

Review Of The Apple iPod Nano – 5th gen

etechreviews.net
23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Apple has installed a camera that has the shooting capable of 640 x 360 pixels and is equipped with 15 silly special effects that add ‘zazz’ to your life. Now, the camera is located at the lower left on the back panel, which means that there are very few instances when your hand will not be touching the lens of the camera or the microphone. After many trials you will realize the only way to not touch the camera is by holding to delicately by its sides.

Review Of The Apple iPod Nano – 5th gen

etechreviews.net
23 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Thumbs up: Sleek and compact design; great value for money; nice sound quality. Thumbs down: The FM radio and camera are still in their baby steps; scroll wheel not up to the mark. Inside the trunk: 16 GB storage capacity; 2.2 inch screen; video recording at a resolution of  640 x 480 pixels and 30 fps. In built rechargeable battery; video play back.

Review: Apple's new 3G iPod nano is a 5G video iPod in a nano-thin shell

AppleInsider
10 September 2007
  • Excerpt: The new third generation Nano has the same small and ultra thin form factor as previous Nanos and similarly occupies the same sports-centric product position in the Apple's iPod line. However, it adds full video iPod features on a screen smaller than the existing 5G video iPod. How well does it deliver?
