New Ipod Nano from Apple is better
When Apple came out with the first generation of iPod nano, I love the form factor and the slim design. I think it was awesome and the sweet spot for a music player design. Then Apple changed the design radically to a squarish iPod Nano which I think sucks. But now the newest breed of Apple’s iPod Nano is GORGEOUS! They brought back the previous design (great job Steve!).
The new Apple iPod nano doesn’t only bring back the previous form factor but it’s also a lot sleeker with less sharp corners which makes it feel good when holding it in your hands. It comes with an 8GB and 16GB version, a 2-inch display with a 320×240 resolution. It would have been better if wide-screen aspect ratios where used since you can watch videos horizontally.
Audio playback time is 24 hours (we’ll see) and video playback is a meager 4 hours. Shake control is available. Just shake it to play the next song.
And now, you can choose from a wide variety of colors — silver, black, purple, blue, green, yellow orange, red, magenta. Of course mp3 music is still supported so you can always opt to buy your music from Amazon.
