Apple iPod Nano 8GB

 

Feels good, that slick Apple interface, neat features, the sound is superb

Despite that price drop, it’s still relatively expensive

Class-leading in every respect, this is our ultra-portable MP3 player of choice

Apple iPod Nano 2G review

 

The best MP3 player in the world is back and, well, pretty much the same as it was before. Except bigger and....err, smaller

Not the most feature-rich Flash MP3 player, but still the sexiest – and the second-generation Nano addresses all the weaknesses of its predecessor.

Apple iPod Nano

 

The Nano is a stunning piece of aesthetic design. Unfortunately like having a Ferrari that's tethered to its favourite petrol station with a steel cable, you're stuck with either iTunes or slightly clunky third party apps to manage your music.

Great looks, Good storage

Low on features, No drag and drop

It's still a strong contender, but lack of features count against it

2nd-generation iPod nano

 

How else can you describe the second-generation nano but as the resurrection of the iPod mini?

The second-generation nano feels and looks great, with a rugged aluminium finish and bright display. Add the vastly improved battery, high-quality recording and search functions, and you've found this Christmas's must-have purchase.

Apple iPod Nano

 

The baby iPod is style over substance incarnate. That's not necessarily as bad as it sounds: to a lot of people, what their player looks like is genuinely important, as is feeling like they've got something that seems worth the money they spent on it

Good battery life, Simplicity to use

Restrictive iTunes software, It just plays music

Absolutely lovely, but not great value

iPod Nano2 reviewed

 

WHEN I BOUGHT A NEW IPOD NANO last weekend, I was initially prepared to sacrifice it, and do a full breakdown of the product to see what made it up. However, I'm very glad to see that Ars Technica have beaten me, as mine can now remain intact....

I was quite expecting it to be able to play back video, as I'm sure that the screen and processor can handle it, and 8GB is more than enough to stuff some TV episodes or even movies on there. I'm sure they've done their experiments with ergonomics, and...

Apple's second-generation iPod Nano

 

The new Nano is certainly more iPod for your money, and there's no doubt that, feature-wise, it's a big improvement over the first-generation model. Me, I prefer the look of the old one, but if the popularity of the multi-coloured iPod Mini is anything...

The New iPod Nano UK Review of Apples revised player

 

No sooner had Apple announced the new Nano we rushed down to our local Apple store to find one. The new range topper with its 8gb memory, smooth curves and brighter screen caught our eye and it's been the centre of attention ever since.
