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 2011 ( 16GB, silver)

 

Editors' note: The version of the iPod Nano introduced in October 2011 is physically indistinguishable from the version launched in 2010. A handful of new features have been introduced through a software update, including improved Nike Plus fitness...

The iPod Nano costs less than before, is easier to navigate, and includes more Nike Plus fitness tracking capabilities. It's also still the best clip-on music player money can buy.

Many features have disappeared over the years, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click...

The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

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...

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

Apple iPod Nano (Sixth Generation, 2010 Version)

 

Apple's mid-level iPod goes super-small, losing some features (and some of its appeal) in its latest iteration.

Beautiful, if tiny, multi-touch screen; includes FM tuner, pedometer; great battery life

Many features added to previous version gone; some menus are unintuitive; so small, it's easily lost

In earlier iterations, the Nano filled a clear gap in the iPod line between the Shuffle and the Touch. This one, however, falls too close to the Shuffle in features and too close to the Touch in price to really justify its existence. Those looking for...

The New iPod nano is a Gem. Really

 

There are people who wear jewelry for the love of gems. There's the sparkle, the flashes of color, the finely cut faceting and the pleasant feeling of wearing and exhibiting something beautiful. For some, it's just a fashion statement; for others it's...

The upshot is that there’s really a lot more to this iPod than meets the eye — despite the fact that the camera and video capabilities have been removed. If you already have a 5G nano, you may find it hard to justify adding this one. But if you’re...
