I'm a huge fan of Apple and the iPod Nano 4th generation is no exception. Quality product, exceptional looks and nice new curves ensures that Apple remain ahead of the game in this market.
First off the iPod Nano 4th generations' screen is much bigger which means that playing games on it is now ok. The new deisgn has also incorporated features such as the screen rotation meaning you can flick it over and I like the fact that you can just shake it to shuffle the songs. However, if you're out… Read Full Review

The ipod nano is very light compared to the first generation Ipod I also have.
Nice screen too for the size and Ive had no problems at all with it since owning. Very good overall - hard to fault it. It does what it says on the tine and is a great piece of kit. Would love ot have larger file size, but then size and lightness is a factor of not having huge amount of disk space, so the compromise is a fair one… Read Full Review

iPod nano seems to be just a fad. It has the new features it boast aside from the gigs added but for a pro user of iPod and other media gadgets the advertisement is just appears a bit overrated. Probably the advertisers might have overdone the grafix thing on the media ads but the real work is on the palm of your hand. Good upgrade but not necessarily that amazing in a sense. The screen might as well be the best improvement for the thing but you don't have to look at the screen all the time… Read Full Review

Was really infuriated and disgusted with this Apple iPod nano v2 8GB. I foolishly made the assumption that an upgrade improves a product, not reduces its' functionality. It has limited use with any of my gadgets-it won't charge on my ipod speakers or wall adapter- and because it runs low on battery all the time, it means you have to be close to a computer to reboot. Not great for travel. What I loved about my old Nano was the fact that I could travel anywhere with it and long car journeys… Read Full Review

I love the new cover flow on the Ipod Nano its really clever that when you flip it over it will automaticly go into cover flow.Theres loads of great ranges of colours too i got mine in pink and love it.Also it is ever soo thin which makes it handy to just slip it in your pocket.You can also find songs/artists on it very easily without any fuss which is great if you just want to listen to a particular song.You can even play games on it using its tilt technology. All in all the ipod nano is a… Read Full Review

Tactile, tiny and inexpensive. Packaged headphones are nasty. Sound just about OK with decent set of Sennheisers. As a portable personal music player the Apple ipod v3 nano 8g is OK… Read Full Review

I would not trade my iPod Nano unless it was for a larger version. I have yet to run out of room on it and store music for my wife, kids and me. Thank you Apple! Easy to use, works great with my car, stereo doc, and extra speakers I purchased separately. Was an easy upgrade for iTunes when I upgraded from an iPod Switch. Easy to forget to turn off correctly and loses battery life (my issue really), the earbuds kill… Read Full Review

Well I think the ipod nano is a brilliant way to listen to music. you can play games on it, whilst listening to music and can also watch videos on it from the internet.
Apart from the bad points i have given, it's brilliant… Read Full Review

Apple is great at putting out beautiful electronics. The nano 8GB is no exception. However, they really need to figure out the multitude of software and other interface (w/ itunes) problems. The interesting thing I found is it that quality and problems can vary dramatically between one ipod to the next, it's like a gamble. Their customer service and repair process also needs a major overhaul in my opinion. Love apple design but really starting to hate the support service… Read Full Review

The ipod nano has a great colour screen which allows you to watch videos on the go!!:D It also has a great slim design and is extremely light weight. Battery life isn't the best in the world and the limited volume restriction in rather annoying! Overall, a great gadget, fab gift and a must have accessory!… Read Full Review

Ipod nano 3rd generation
Well I got my first apple product and I can@t decide if I like the thing or not. I love the amount of features on this tiny media device, it's literally smaller than a credit card. The latest 3rd gen nano is capable of playing mp3's, storing up to 8 hours of video footage (encoded in mp4 format). It will also hold thousands of photos, even presents them as a slide show set to music of your choice. Additionally, It will store text notes with a 4Kb limit each. It plays… Read Full Review

This is a very good product . It can hold a large number of songs and take many photos on it's memory. The battery does not last that long- but i suppose if u use it for a long period of time the battery will run out . It can also be easily scratched so i advise investing in a cover or case for the ipod… Read Full Review

I was pleased when i first got my iPod nano, and that was about a year ago and i still am pleased, i think its a good product and apple have got it right, there are many colours available i have pink and skins and protectors so then not everyone has the same ipod as you so you can be an "individual" i would recommend though buying a separate pair of earphones than using the ones that come with the iPod as they aren't the best i have ever used and they broke after a few months, this happened to… Read Full Review

I had the first generation of iPod nano's years ago and they have improved so much. The design is a lot better being smaller lighter and fit's in the palm of your hand.
I would suggest as soon as you buy one of these you also buy a protective case, I didn't know I was getting one for Christmas and within a week of having it, it has the tiniest scratch on the screen. I bought a screen protector off ebay but the scratch still bugs me because I know it's there!
Anyway! The sound quality is… Read Full Review

After the 1st gen Nanos, the 2nd gens had a lot to live up to. The form factor, the sound quality, the software- and they were at least comparable. The first thing that struck me, mine being a re-furb, were the dents in the case. there were plenty, to accompany a cornucopia of scratches. if you are going to abuse the poor thing, you will leave scars. don,t. And of course, the big question for you audiophile types, sound quality? Good, actually! The Stock i Buds will never exceed the i Pod's… Read Full Review
