Apple iPod nano (2012)

 

With its latest model, Apple has finally fixed the iPod nano. The 5th- and 6th-generation MP3 players were a radical rethink that didn't work all that well; Apple tossed the click wheel design that the first four nano generations used, and replaced it...

Very thin and light, yet sturdy. Larger, more responsive touch screen than before. Bundled EarPods are much improved. Finally supports wireless stereo Bluetooth streaming. Includes a pedometer and Fitness app. Stellar battery life

Still no video recording. No in-line playback controls. Not natively compatible with existing accessories, thanks to the new Lightning Connector

Apple puts the iPod nano back on track with its latest version, which sports a sweet new design, a larger touch screen, video playback capabilities, and more.

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...

iPod Nano (2012) 7th Generation review

 

Apple took their sweet time upgrading the iPod family as the 4th Generation iPod Touch and 6th generation iPod Nano basically skipped a year of upgrades. Fortunately, along with the release of the iPhone 5, a whole new family of iPods came with it. As...

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...

iPod Nano (7th Generation) Review

 

Last year's iPod Nano was Excellent. It was a big step forward for Apple, as they returned the device back to it's roots of music player first, everything else second. Half the weight and size was [...]

Larger icons are easier to see ; Watch feature is an interesting turn for many users ; Everything good about it last year is still there

No hardware upgrades from last year. No AM/HD radio, no internal antenna, no earbuds with a microphone ; Watch faces are limited; no option to download/make/buy different ones ; Still very easy to lose. No solution for keeping it safely in sight except...

In some ways, the iPod nano is Apple's most difficult child. Not because it's a bad product, on the contrary, it's a great idea, sensibly priced and with the all the features you might reasonably want in a basic MP3 player. What's more, it sells well...

Good capacity, great design, sounds ace, FM radio is brilliant, Nike+ sync, lovely screen

Will scratch, fairly expensive

If we were really feeling picky, we could say that the nano is a bit too expensive. And, we suppose, compared to other products, it might be a bit more pricey. But you get the Nike+ facilities built-in, there's the radio and brilliant video playback...

Apple iPod Nano review

 

Ultra-slim, ultra-light and with a massive battery life, the Nano is a reliable if rather expensive MP3 player

Expert review by:

iPod nano 7th generation (2012)

 

With fewer features than the iPod touch, the nano is a sleek, 5mm thick joy to use.

Slim body ; Responsive touchscreen ; Easy to use interface

A bit expensive ; Fairly low screen res ; Limited features

. These replace the Apple earphones that have accompanied every Apple player for years, and they have been in development for almost half a decade.

Apple iPod nano 7th gen hands-on

 

The iPod nano 7th gen is a thin and light way to pack Hollywood hits into your pocket, but it's not as suited to the gym as the previous one.

Large screen ; Incredibly slim ; Choice of colours

Not as sporty as previous model ; White face isn't as classy as earlier versions

Product Specifications

The original iPod changed the way you listen to music by putting thousands of songs in your pocket. Now it changes the way you see your music, with a crisp color screen. Browse playlists via vivid menus, thumb through album cover art, even play games and view calendars in color. Or sync photos and view them in color, anywhere. Your personal, portable entertainment library, iPod looks as good as it sounds. iPod incorporates the same touch-sensitive Apple Click Wheel that debuted on iPod mini. Use it to navigate your music on the iPod's 65,536-color, 220x176-pixel display. Spin the wheel to scroll effortlessly through dozens of playlists, hundreds of albums or thousands of songs and podcasts. Or highlight photos. iPod displays 25 full-color thumbnails at a time, and you can scroll through them the same way you scroll through song titles. When you see a photo you'd like displayed all by its lonesome, just click the center button and voila. No one will have to say "cheese" as long as you have iPod around. Whether you're listening to tunes or checking out photos, you're sure to be all smiles. iPod lets you play your music for up to 15 hours on a single battery charge. Imagine: you could fly from New York to Paris and still have hours of listening time left as you stroll the Champs Elysees. While you're on the move, iPod keeps you aware of its charge level, and when it's time, iPod's quick to recharge. Plug it into your computer or a handy wall socket (via the included power adapter) and you can fast-charge iPod in as little as two hours. The perfect companion to iPod, iTunes lets you easily build and manage your digital audio collection. Browse the built-in iTunes Music Store for more than 1 million songs, 11,000 audiobooks and 3,000 podcasts. Jazz, Pop or Hip Hop. Mystery, memoir or thriller. Comedy, news or politics. From reading to radio, the iTunes Music Store has it all. Download what you want, then sync everything - including full-color album, audiobook and podcast art - to your iPod using the included USB 2.0 or optional FireWire cable. Even your photos come along for the ride, either via iTunes or the iPod Camera Connector. Once you sync, everything appears on your iPod, so you can look or listen anytime, anywhere. As for the CDs you already own, iTunes makes it easy to transfer your favorite songs and albums. Just pop a CD into your Mac or PC and click the Import button. You can import music in a variety of formats, such as MP3 or AAC, and at whatever quality level you'd prefer. Choose the Apple Lossless encoder for sound quality indistinguishable from a CD at about half the original file size. And with USB 2.0 and FireWire support, you can transfer the music from an entire CD to iPod in just 5 seconds or less.
