The sixth-generation iPod Nano has a multi touch screen, enabling you to not only listen to your music, podcasts and audiobooks, but also to see the covers and get access to several options for how to listen. There are also a number of fitness features, helping you keep track of your walk or your run, all without the need for any extra devices.
Unlike most other iPods the iPod Nano also has a built in FM-radio, giving you endless access to music and news from the airwaves around you. You even have the option to pause the radio and resume listening as if nothing had happened.
Almost as compact as the iPod Shuffle, the Nano is a step up in both terms of storage as well as capability. Choose between a 8GB model and a 16GB model, both of which have up to 24 hours of playback time. The iPod Nano gives you a lot of listening time before you have to hunt for a power outlet and charge up the battery. All in a very compact package that starts at £115.
Perhaps one of the more interesting features is the ability to use the iPod Nano as a watch. There are several clock faces built into the device and you can get a watch strap in nearly any color, appropriate for almost any occasion. The iPod Nano itself is also available in a wide selection of colors.
The iPod Nano does, however, not have the availability of apps from the App Store. There is also no cameras or ways to communicate with the rest of the world, limiting the role of the Nano to being only a listening device.
Alternatives to the iPod classic include the iPod shuffle and the iPod touch.
