Apple iPod nanoTake out four credit cards from your wallet. Stack them and hold them in your hand. Apple’s iPod nano is about the same weight and half an inch less wide than that stack of cards. Now put three cards back in your wallet and use the remaining card to go buy yourself a nano.
The nano’s introduction should not be misinterpreted as just another iPod in the lineup. It is, in fact, exactly what the iPod should have been in the first place: a flash-based jukebox with a long battery life and stunning color screen. This new iPod is not a smaller version of another iPod, or combination of any other two iPods. The user interface is the same (which has always been iPod’s strength) but that’s it. The differences here are under the skin, most notably with the screen.

Review: iPod nano not Without its Problems

iPod nanosNow that I’ve had some time to play with my new iPod nano I felt that some observations were in order. I was surprised by a few things with the iPod mini-replacement – both good and bad.
First off the nano is tiny, I mean ridiculously tiny. The ads and the images online don’t do it justice. You have to go see one at an Apple retailer to grasp the tiny form factor. As a result, the screen is tiny too. The nano’s color display is 176×132 pixels and 1.5-inches diagonally which is about 0.2 inches smaller than the iPod mini and 0.5 inches smaller than a full-size iPod (although it packs almost as many pixels as the full-size iPod).
