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 6th gen review

 

The Apple iPod nano 6th gen is a great product for rich people who use the gym. For everyone else, the iPod shuffle and iPod touch offer better value for money.

Small and light ; Built-in clip ; FM radio with pause function ; Long battery life

Confusing menus ; High price

Ultimately the sixth-generation nano, or iPod run, is a great product for a very specific niche -- those who want more control over their MP3 player in the gym, or those who just want something new to flash about when exercising. For everyone else,...

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.

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

New Apple iPod Nano : India Preview

 

Apple has trimmed down the size and features but added multi-touch screen on the latest iPod Nano. Do we miss the click-wheel?

Compact design ; Smooth interface ; FM radio with Live Pause

Unsuitable for Active use ; Camera on the Nano 5G is missing ; Limited file format support ; No drag and drop

The new iPod Nano ( sixth generation) has gone through a major overhaul in terms of design. It has a small multitouch screen and VoiceOver. Apple keeps the FM radio with live pause option but let go the video camera found on the previous Nano ( fifth...

iPod nano 6th Generation Review

 

Except for its design the new nano is quite disappointing

Small, attractive design, built-in clip, FM radio with Live Pause, pedometer, smooth and fast interface, good battery life

Absurdly expensive for the features and performance, unimpressive display quality, display feels too small at times, certain gestures are not intuitive, poor quality supplied earphones

The new iPod nano 6G is the biggest overhaul in the new stable of iPods just announced. The clickwheel has gone to be replaced with a square touchscreen and the whole unit has shrunk significantly.

When it comes to build, the new iPod nano looks like a cross between an iPod shuffle and an iPhone. The new 1.54-inch multitouch screen looks lovely, and the controls are intuitive, responding to swipes and long presses for moving through the menus...

You’re basically paying at least £90 more for a bit more capacity than the new iPod shuffle, an FM radio, and the option to pick specific albums rather than playlists. That doesn’t scream value to us, especially when the swanky new iPod touch can be...

Apple iPod nano (sixth generation, late 2010) review

 

Biggest Apple iPod nano makeover yet gains multitouch but loses features and screen size.

The new iPod nano is a bit of an enigma. On the one hand, its size and touchscreen interface are sure to generate oohs and aahs, and in many cases provide genuine, and substantial, benefits. On the other hand, the new interface suffers a bit from being...
