The New Multitouch iPod Nano

September 1, 2010

The New Multitouch iPod NanoThe new iPod nano is but an overgrown stamp, shockingly small in the way that original iPod nano blew us all way. It does away with the click wheel in favor of multitouch. But how do you use it?

The tiny touchscreen iPod Nano is 46% smaller and 42% lighter than its predecessor. It has hard volume buttons, Voiceover, FM radio, NIke+, and a pedometer, and Apple’s saying it has 24 hour battery life.

The revamped OS doesn’t offer much in the way of new capabilities over the old Nano, since it’s focused on a streamlined control scheme, and you navigate just the way you’d expect. Twisting with two fingers There’s a home screen which you can populate with your most-used items, rearranged by tapping and holding, just like on iOS devices.

The new version makes way more sense than the old Nano, given what people who still buy dedicated MP3 players—that aren’t looking to carry their entire library in their pocket—are looking for.

It comes in the same four colors as the new Shuffle, as well as graphite red and a Global Fund-sponsored red. $149 for 8GB; $179 for the 16GB version.
