Apple iPod nano (7th generation) review
11 February 2013
Excerpt: In late 2012, Apple introduced its new line up of iPod devices, including the new 7th generation iPod nano . Having recently moved from a 1st generation nano to a 6th generation nano, I did not think I would have the opportunity or need for the new nano. But when one of my other portable music devices failed, the 7th generation iPod nano was my first choice for its replacement.
Excerpt: The new iPod nano brings a bigger screen, bluetooth support and a fresh design, but stops short of adding WiFi and a full version of iOS 6 that supports apps and streaming music. As an MP3 player the iPod nano is one of the best, but for users that already own smartphones the $150 anodized aluminum MP3 […]
Summary: The iPod Nano is a technical marvel. It’s a media device and sports aid combo that’s crammed inside a very small, sleek and attractive package. I still can’t get over how I can fit the Nano inside my wallet’s card slot. The asking price of Php 8,290 may seem a bit expensive considering a brand new 8 GB iPod Touch (4th generation) can be had for just a little more money.
Excerpt: Japanese blog Macotakara not only published a iPod touch 5th Generation review , but also already was able to tes the new iPod nano that is supposed to ship later this month. The new iPod nano is a drastically different product than its predecessor. The new iPod nano 7G is basically a small iPod touch, but still runs its own custom iOS . As before the new iPod nano comes in several different colors. Judging from the review video the iPod nano is pretty snappy.
Summary: The seventh-generation iPod Nano is an incredibly compact portable media player with gym-friendly features, but it's overshadowed by the superior value of Apple's iPod Shuffle and fourth-generation iPod Touch.
Pros: The iPod Nano's new home button and longer screen offer a familiar smartphone-style interface, and the added Bluetooth compatibility opens the device up to a number of wireless audio accessories.
Cons: The screen resolution is mediocre, there's no integrated headphone remote, and it still lacks the camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock that Apple cut from the Nano last year. And let's not forget that Lightning port, which breaks compatibility with your existing iPod speakers and accessories.
Summary: Conceptually, the new Nano is a nice idea, trying to fuse the familiar iPhone look onto a considerably smaller device, and they do say “ less is more ” but in this case it feels a lot like “ more is less ”. The Bluetooth is a welcome addition but beyond that there just doesn’t seem enough to justify the purchase and the loss of the clip is a real pain bearing in mind where the Nano may be used.
