Apple iPod nano (2011)

 

Lightweight, clip-on design. Larger icons make it easier to navigate menu. Simple, intuitive user interface. Screen can be adjusted to face in four directions. Several clock faces so you can wear the player as a watch. Strong battery life.

Small screen. No video recording or playback. Lousy earbuds, no integrated controls. Watch bands are not included.

The latest iteration of the Apple iPod nano does little to improve on the previous generation player, but a price drop makes it a better deal.

Apple 16GB iPod nano (sixth generation, late 2010)

 

No iPod model has received as many makeovers—both minor and dramatic—as the iPod nano. (Perhaps not coincidentally, no other iPod model has sold as well.) The originalnano was simply a scaled-down version of the standard iPod—tall and thin with a...

Better media-browsing than previous models ; Compact size ; Multi-Touch and interface improve many functions ; Convenient clip

Cheaper earbuds, smaller screen than previous nano ; Multi-Touch sometimes more gimicky than useful ; No physical playback buttons ; No video-watching and -recording features

Apple iPod nano (6th Gen. with Touch Screen)

 

The latest, shrunken touch-screen iPod nano marks a rare misstep from Apple. Because it is an iPod, the 6th-generation nano works seamlessly with a graceful user interface, but it's a flawed concept. Last year's 5th-gen nano came with a larger screen,...

Lightweight, wearable design. Rotatable, multi-touch screen. Integrated FM radio and Nike+ fitness features

Screen is smaller than 5th-gen iPod nano's. Video camera and video-playback capability have been removed. Tiny size makes it easy to misplace or lose. Lousy earbuds. Cover Flow is no longer supported

Apple's first misstep in the iPod nano line-up, the sixth-generation model trades its predecessor's click wheel for touch-screen controls. But an ultracompact form factor means the display is much smaller. Plus you lose video capture and playback...

iPod nano review (2010)

 

Apple's sixth generation of the iPod nano is essentially the first complete rethinking the product has had since its debut in 2005. The previous form factor -- slim and light with a decently sized display and clickwheel -- has been all but abandoned....

New touchscreen UI is slick ; Smaller and lighter than ever before ; Sound quality was very good

Still a bit pricey ; Small size makes it easy to lose ; Lack of video playback could bother some

iPod nano (2010)

 

Apple's in-between-size iPod gets a makeover with an ultracompact design, intuitive multitouch display, and sporty clip.

Although the nano 2010 dropped features some users may have been fond of--video recording and playback--the revamped iPod nano ushers in a touch-based user interface that feels fresh and is easy to use. We highly recommend it for music-lovers who want...

Apple iPod nano 16GB: Review

 

There is not much sense in looking anywhere else for a digital music player when price, features and design are taken care of by one particular company. There may come a time when other companies are able to eclipse the offerings that Apple gives, that...

Available in 9 colors, 16gb capacity (3500 songs approx.), Built in Video camera, Extremely Lightweight, FM Radio

There are no cons for this product

The New iPod nano is a Gem.  Really

 

Beautifully designed and beautiful to wear. Focus on music and photos. Lots of other nice features, not hard to find, but tucked just slightly out of sight: FM radio, clock, stopwatch, alarm, VoiceOver, pedometer, Nike Sport interface, voice memos.

Very small and easy to misplace.

It’s amazing how far we’ve come from the early, clunky iPods with a hard disk and manual controls. This iPad nano is not only a gem, but a full-fledged 21st century, wearable, technological accessory … and necessity.  The 5G nano just didn’t go there,...

Loop Nano Watchband for Apple iPod nano Review

 

There are a lot of watchbands for the iPod nano on the market, and a lot of them seem a bit big and sporty to me. The Loop Nano watchband is sleek and looks more like a regular watchband. It works with both the 6th and 7th generation of the Apple iPod...

Sleek and discreet ; iPod nano can be used as a watch or as a music player ; Can charge the nano without removing it from the watchband

None

Apple iPod nano Sixth Generation (6G) Review

 

Completely redesigned with Multi-Touch LCD and integrated clip, Incredibly lightweight, compact and versatile...

...for a music-only player: Gone are many of last year's key features, Small touch screen can be a challenge to manipulate with big fingers

When weighing this year's additions to the nano against what has been subtracted, I am a little surprised that Apple has decided to maintain the same price points at both the 8GB and 16GB capacities. Some of the conspicuous absentees, notably any video...
