The Small But Mighty New iPod Nano
Almost exactly nine years ago to the day, a revolution in the art of music-listening happened. The date was October 23, 2001 and listening to music as we know it was changed forever.
The first iPod was introduced.
Now think back to what seems eons ago; the rotating circle in the middle of the iPod, to scroll through thousands and thousands of songs you could download onto your own personal music library. But that was just the beginning.
Four years later, a smaller version was introduced in the form of the iPod nano. Now six generations later, Apple has released the newest iPod nano.
This small but mighty nano is in a whole new league. Forget the rotating circle to scroll through your music, and replace it with a complete touch-screen device the size of a cracker that fits into the palm of your hand.
Whether you are an exercise queen or you want to be a DJ, you can mix or run easily with this device.
When listening to your favorite songs, just tap the Genius icon, and your iPod nano will find other songs in your library that go great together. It also comes with a built-in clip on the back to stick to your jacket, bag, or running shorts, making it easy to exercise with.
Other features include a pedometer to track your steps and meet your fitness goals. Even a FM Radio with the ability to pause live radio. You can rewind up to 15 minutes when listening to your favorite song or talk show, and then fast-forward to the live broadcast.
The new iPod nano also better caters to people who have listening disabilities. For example, if you have trouble hearing out of one ear, you can switch your iPod to Mono Audio to hear both audio channels in either ear.
Not to mention a built-in rechargeable battery that gives you up to 24 hours of listening!
All these features and more are crammed into this compact, sleek and colorful new iPod nano.
It is available now with a starting price of $149 for 8gb, and $179 for 16gb.
