iPod nano review (2012)

 

If you think Apple is getting a little predictable with its yearly device refreshes, you probably haven't been charting the progress of its iPod nano.

Incredibly tiny and light ; Aluminum case feels solid, durable ; 16:9 display and video playback ; Integrated Nike+ functionality

No camera ; Expensive

Apple's latest iPod nano marks another re-design for the company's littlest player, but still it brings more to the table than any previous iteration.

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.

Apple iPod nano review (2012)

 

Here's the thing: you can't really write a review of the new iPod nano. What is there to say? It is a small slab of aluminum with a multitouch screen that plays music files exactly as well as every...

Extremely small ; Fast and simple to use ; Adds Bluetooth support

Requires syncing with iTunes ; No support for iTunes in the Cloud or other streaming services

Most people should spend the extra $50 on the iPod touch

Apple iPod Nano ( seventh generation, yellow)

 

Priced at $149 and outfitted with 16GB of storage, the iPod Nano offers most of the amenities we've come to expect from an iPod, and strikes an interesting balance between the simplicity of the iPod Shuffle and the smartphonelike operation of the iPod...

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.

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...

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.

iPod Nano review: Being small isn't enough

 

The seventh-generation Apple iPod Nano is a fun, cute, capable MP3 player. With it, you can take virtually all of your iTunes media on the go -- your music, videos, audiobooks, podcasts, and even photos.

Apple iPod nano (7th generation) review

 

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...

First iPod nano 7th Generation Review is released

 
Feb, 2012

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.
