Excellent mp3 player for simplicityPosted .
Although I believe that this is not as good as the prior generation of iPod Nano, I see the advantages to this all new design. If you are an adult who doesn’t want the glitter-glam of the iPod Touch but wants a stone-simple mp3 player. This is a great mp3 player for exercising as it clips to your clothes and has a built-in radio receiver. You no longer have to purchase expensive, awkward armbands. The multi-touch display is brain-dead simple to use, even if you are completely technology illiterate, the iPod Nano 6th Generation is super simple for anybody to understand and operate. To me it makes sense that apple removed video playback and all of the “pizzazz.” If you want games, video playback or a camera, you should get the iPod touch. This Nano is intended for older people who want a simple mp3 player for exercising, but don’t like the shuffle as it doesn’t have a screen. The nano is no longer aimed at such a broad category of people. The touch is intended to replace the Nano. As Steve Jobs says himself, “for the first time ever, the iPod Touch has sold more units than the Nano.” Like I keep saying, the new Nano is now aimed at older people who only care about music. If you want all the other stuff, go for the Touch.I would recommend this to a friend

Great for SimplicityPosted .
My first generation iPod nano had could barley hold a charge anymore and since I refuse to pay for a smartphone I needed a new one. I ruled out the shuffle because I because it didn't have a screen or any features really. The classic had too much storage capacity for my 1500 hundred song library, and the touch was too much like my iPad. Since I like the touch screen and extra features over the shuffle I went with the new nano and am very satisfied with it. Though I think the price should have dropped due to the removal of the camera and video there is no denying that the nano is a great music player for those who want something simple.I would recommend this to a friend

What I was waiting forPosted .
I have a very old version of the iPod and have been looking to upgrade. When they came out with the last version of the Nano I decided not to buy because I didn't want to pay for things I would never use. I have a digital camera, video camera, Wii and a phone that has all those feature too. I simply wanted an MP3 player with a touch screen and was so excited when I saw this new version! It is very easy to use, small and the clip is handy. Bottom line - Great iPod for those who don't want all the extra features.I would recommend this to a friend

Amazing....worth it.Posted .
Let's be realistic here in a time of multi-generation shuffles, nanos, classics, touches....please don't try to tell me that this will be your 1st ipod purchase or a replacement purchase for a previous model. You probably have a phone that plays music, a laptop that holds your music, an adapter for your car to play all of your ipods (you know you own more than one). My point is this new nano is what everyone who loves the shuffle has always wanted...a screen!!! If you are soooooo ridiculous to want a video or a camera....get an older nano, a classic or a touch and quit your complaining, OR simply use your cell phone. I have every model ipod and have new ever used the video or camera on the nano. I use it on my cell constantly. The new nano is awesome and well worth it for the touch screen and the clip!!!!I would recommend this to a friend

Missing Generation 2Posted .
Generation 2 was still the best Nano Apple has put to market. However, since that is no longer available new here is an honest review of generation 6. For any avid runner that wants a) to listen to music b) woud like their mileage tracked and c) would like to avoid the bulk/potential damage of/to their iPhone this is probably the best option on the market. Beware: this device DOES NOT do well in humid weather and will completely shutdown/malfunction. It is not as simple to change/skip songs when running, the easiest way is to unclip the device, turn the screen on and skip until a desired song is found. A little annoying compared to the previous generations which could be done by touch alone. Also, this device STILL REQUIRES the receiver for the Nike+ adaptation. This is NOT widely promoted on either Apple or Nike's websites, all the pictures show the device sans the receiver. However, in the fine print it is stated the receiver has to be attached for Nike+ to work. This brings up the whole discussion around the receiver staying in, especially on long runs and being careful not to bump it, pull it out etc. as the device will "end your workout" without a way to resume. Again, unless you are really trying to accurately (used loosely) track mileage, time, splits, etc this is an annoyance, however if you are using the device for training this is a pain in the.....I would recommend this to a friend

Great product if...Posted .
This nano is a great in comparison to the shuffle and old nano. I primarily use it at the gym and sometimes in my car. I've found that it is useful to be able to see a screen to change songs in the event my playlists are setup like I like them, but otherwise when you're working out, you really dont have time to look at the screen. It works well for the car because it's small and discrete. I can easily see what songs are coming up and dont need to spend money on an expensive interface to view the songs through my car's screen. Nice product and good solution for those that want a screen on their device, but cant carry around something as large as the iPod touch.I would recommend this to a friend

Its good....but....apple plz go backPosted .
Ok...Im not here to bash the ipod i am here to put in my opinion. Ok i dont like the size. One of the reasons i loved my first nano which was the first Gen. I loved the scroll wheel. I love my sisters ipod classic is amazing! i would get one if it wasn't for the price and the size. My second ipod was the firts gen touch. i think its too much. i have two apps and rarely use it for internet id rather use my laptop. but the nano's touch screen is nothing compared to the touch's. Its too inaccurate and my fingers are way too large for the puny screen. the clip isnt very reliable since it has fallen off my hoodie pocket twice and hit the floor. running with this thing is impossible unless you carry it. I decided to sell it to my buddy and get the 8gb 5th Gen nano and have never been mmore satisfied with the ipod. the speaker help when i one of my friends wants to listen. the new nano should have kept that. the recorder is awesome and great quality and prefect. Its just as portable as the new nano and the click wheel is gasmic. well thats my put in i hope it helps someone.No, I would not recommend this to a friend

What's with the touching?Posted .
So this gets to be the new Ipod Nano. Smaller? you bet. With better sound? Of course! With new features? Yes! but with also a great loss. Thing is, right now by purchasing this you're not getting an ipod nano. You're simply getting a touch-screen, high-storage ipod shuffle. Why? because all the features that made it different from the shuffle, such as its digital camera, its video features, and its games, are no more. They were all sacrificed to earn a clip on its back and the smallest screen an ipod has ever had. True, you still have the good 8gb of storage that make it better than a shuffle, but you will only be able to fill it with music. We definitely will need to ask ourselves if we want a touchscreen so badly to lose all other good things an ipod Nano had. Because if we do want those features, our only choices now is the good old Ipod Classic.No, I would not recommend this to a friend
