Let’s start with this review.
First, we’re going to take a look at iPod nano.
I have a second gen. 2Gb version, that comes in gray color.
First time I saw it, I couldn’t believe how small it’s. Is almost the same size of a credit card, just little bit wider.
The screen is actually brighter that the previous version, and the general aspect is better.
Things that I dislike: First time I opened the case, I see some aluminum painting scratched just in the edge of the scroll wheel. Totally lame!
I know these products are a superior engineering development, so I’d expect everything to be as good as I imagined.
Hell no. The scroll wheel is completely “cheap”. It looks like a piece of cheap plastic when you touch it. I thought it was going to break if I grabbed too hard!
Also, I’ve been playing with it some time now, and sometimes it completely crashes. This is something I’ve experienced just a couple of times with my old 4th gen iPod.
But with this one, it’s been like 5 or 6 times in more than a Week.
Here you have a couple of pics so you can see.
Now, lets see the video.
Aaah what a nice thingy! Black color is amazing. Although, you have to wear gloves to avoid scratch it.
Display size is OK. It could always be bigger, but it is not small at all. It’s brighter than previous model.
Same problem with the scroll wheel, here. It feels so cheap when you use it.
Overall size is good, this is the 80Gb version, and it’s smaller than my 4th gen 30Gb model.
If you were a user of 4th gen iPod, your USB wall charger and Camera Connector WILL WORK WITH new model, and it shows no problems at all
Headphones: THEY ARE GOOD. Better than previous versions, but not so much better. They still lack at bass sound. I own a Nokia 6131 that comes with stereo headphones, and they are way better.
Good thing: they come with a rubber surface on them, so they will keep in your ear without falling. They form is designed way better than previous version, so they better adjust to your ear.
Batteries length: Nanos playback time is amazing. I’ve never seen something like that. I’ve never been able to finish the whole charge.
On iPod video, is good too: I used it 8 hours playing audio and video. (Apple website says it’ll last 6.5 hours, so it was good for me.)
Here you ave a couple of pics:
So, this is it. They are good gadgets, that I hope get even better in their next release. iPod touchscreen is something that we’re all already waiting.
To make it short:
• Playback time
• Brighter display
• Faster transfers to and from PC
• Old photo Camera connector still works with new models (except nano)
• Old wall charger still works with new models (nano incuded).
