Apple iPod nano 5th Gen 8GB

 

The addition of a video camera makes this Apple's best nano yet.

The 5th gen iPod nano is inarguably Apple's best yet. It's still more expensive than its peers, but it's got more style than any rival and the addition of a video camera gives it more than a modicum of substance too.

Apple iPod Nano 5G review

 

The Nano 5G has lined up its crosshairs on Flip-style video cameras. Is it ready to become the world's most popular mini camcorder?

Tonnes of new features plus better sound and video – the new Nano’s all gain and no pain

Apple iPod nano 5th Gen 16GB review

 

Does the world's most popular iPod really need an FM radio and a video camera?

Good value ; Sleek design ; Good quality playback

Video camera & FM radio are pointless ; Scrollwheel feels archaic

Apple iPod Nano 16GB review

 

Apple's latest iPod Nano weighs just 34g and is no thicker than a pair of £1 coins, but Apple has squeezed in an FM radio and a video camera alongside its media playback features.

Apple's latest iPod Nano is impressively slim, but audio quality and battery life could be better, while some of the extras feel gimmicky.

Apple iPod Nano fifth generation review

 

The iPod Nano MP3 player continues Apple's legacy of packing a multitude of features into a colorful, impossibly thin design and comes reasonably priced at $149 (8GB) and $179 (16GB). This time around, Apple is branching out of its iPod formula in a...

Packed to the gills with new audio-video features such as a video camera, FM radio, voice recording, Genius Mixes, a built-in speaker, and a larger 2.2-inch screen; also gets a pedometer.

The Nano's camera can't shoot photos or HD-quality video and Apple located its lens in the most awkward location imaginable. Storage capacities remain stuck at 8GB and 16GB.

No other MP3 player on the planet packs more features, from video to a pedometer, into a smaller package than the overachieving Apple iPod Nano.

Apple iPod nano video review

 

A highly capable and affordable performer in its previous two iterations, the fifth-generation (5G) iPod nano adds useful and entertaining features such as a video camera and microphone mounted on the back of the iPod, an FM radio with buffering and...

The 4G iPod nano was an incremental update to the 3G nano that preceded it - new form, new colours, better storage, Genius playlist support, Spoken Menus, and an accelerometer. A fine, but hardly earthshaking, update. The 5G iPod nano is different. A...

iPod Nano 5th Generation Review

 

I've spent quite a lot of time with the latest 5th generation of the iPod Nano since its release last month, and found it to be a welcome addition to Apple's holiday line-up with a host of welcome features including what must be Apple's most leaked...

All things considered, the new 5th generation iPod Nano is well worth taking a look at if you want to upgrade your iPod, but I wouldn’t upgrade if I had a 4th generation Nano, as the new features, personally, don't justify the purchase of another new...
