Apple iPod nano 6G review

 

Excellent screen, interface works, compact

Poor headphones, no Voice Control, you can't just slap the buttons through your pocket like previous versions

It isn't that the new iPod nano does anything wrong, but it is a change to the nano line, leaving a regular MP3 player type hole in Apple's line up of music devices. The connector on the bottom means it is still compatible with existing docks, although...

iPod nano 6th Gen (2010)

 

The latest iPod nano lives up to its name better than ever.

Wonderfully intuitive ; Decent sound quality ; Beautiful design

Will be too small for some ; Lots of scrolling when navigating ; No additional apps available

To purchase an iPod nano, you have to be happy to do so fully aware than you are paying well over the odds for what is admittedly a beautiful piece of industrial design, but also a work of form over function. But when the form is so exquisite, should...

Sixth-generation Apple iPod nano review

 

The Apple iPod nano, now in its sixth generation, has received a hefty facelift. Gone is the long, slim design of the fifth-generation nano along with the traditional click wheel control system. The new nano has been made 46 per cent smaller and 42 per...

With the sixth-generation Apple iPod nano, Apple has proved to us that less is not best. Key features that we loved on previous models like the camera, video recording and integrated speaker have disappeared. The new nano remains a solid device for...

Apple iPod nano 2010 review

 

As we were sat watching Steve Jobs announce the new iPod line-up at Apple's annual shindig, we were shocked by the huge changes to the Nano. The previous five generations were basically all iterations of the same idea, but Apple has changed tack...

For some, the new nano will be a disappointment, while for others (particularly runners) it will be a revelation.

Apple iPod Nano 6G review

 

The iPod Nano has undergone a radical transformation for its sixth generation. Everything has changed: the Nano has lost its scrollwheel, camera and video playback – and become a touchscreen iPod Shuffle, right down to the alluring range of colours and...

The Nano has dropped to a size more fitting for its name. But has Apple made too many compromises to get there?

Too feature-light to be a must-have, too expensive to be an impulse purchase

Apple iPod Nano 8GB

 

Ultra-portable, sounds superb but still a tad pricey

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

Despite that price drop, it’s still relatively expensive

Apple iPod Nano 6th Generation

 

A small, nifty, light and reasonably priced iPod Nano and is a great addition to the Apple range. Another benefit is with the release of the new iPod Nano older generations will drop in price and even though they won't feature the latest technology...

A 24hour battery life, FM Radio, New multi-touch technology, A 1.5inch display screen

It is extremely easy to lose and due to its weight and size it is difficult to realise exactly where you have left it

Apple iPod nano 8 GB

 

Apple's latest generation iPod nano has undergone an intensive workout to become a lot more compact than the previous version.

A lot more compact, price cut, easy to use UI

Battery life not the best, no more video functionality

The move by Apple to drop its video recording and playback functionality on the new iPod nano range hasn't really detracted from the experience of using the device. It has resulted in a music player that does what is needed, using an intuitive user...
