Manufacturer's Description

A Rocking New Design

iPod nano is now all music and all multi-touch. It's smaller, lighter, colourful and sleek. You can clip it on, take it everywhere, and always keep your music within reach

Music has a Whole New Feel

iPod nano has been completely redesigned with Multi-Touch--the same technology that makes iPhone, iPad and iPod touch so amazing. Now it's half the size and even easier to play. Everything you want to hear is just a tap or swipe away.

Turn up the Colour

In sleek anodised aluminium and seven bright colours, iPod nano makes a huge statement: You are, most definitely, ready to rock.

Pixels that Pop

Show off your album art, photos and the colour-coordinated wallpaper on the 1.5-inch colour display with 240x240 pixel resolution. It's tiny yet stunning.

Clip on and Cut Loose

The new built-in clip makes it easy to move to the music. Just clip iPod nano to your sleeve, jacket or bag and wherever you go, your favourite tunes are right where you need them.

Plug into the Groove

With the built-in 30-pin connector, you can easily plug iPod nano into your car stereo system, your speakers at home and many other products made for iPod.

It Fits Your Fingers

iPod nano is 46% smaller, 42% lighter and 100% made for music with Multi-Touch. It's the perfect size for a tap or a swipe, so fingertips feel right at home.

New Features for Fingers

If you think you're into music now, wait until you get your hands on iPod nano. your favourite songs are a tap away--along with a mix-making Genius, a built-in FM radio, and more.

Your Greatest Hits. And Taps. And Swipes

The best things in life have a soundtrack, and that's where iPod nano shines. The Multi-Touch display lets you experience your music in a new way. Tap to play anything you want to hear, swipe the home screen to browse your music by songs, albums, artists, playlists, genres or composers. You can even rearrange the icons on your home screen so your music is organised just how you like.

Clip on Some Tunes

With the new built-in clip, you can walk, run, ride or dance with your favourite songs on your sleeve (or pocket, jacket or bag). The album art of the song you're listening to fits perfectly on the display.

Play all day. And all Night

The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 24 hours of non-stop music. So when you clip on an 8GB or 16GB iPad nano, you'll have plenty of tunes to make it through your commute, your workout and beyond.

Shake it Up

Now for something completely random. Give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. Shake to shuffle is perfect for when you're not in any particular music mood. You never know what you're going to hear, and you'll always be pleasantly surprised.

Genius--The music mixmaster

Your own Personal DJ

Say you're listening to a song you love and you want to stay in the groove, just tap Genius. It finds other songs on your iPod nano that go great together and makes a Genius playlist for you. For more song combinations you wouldn't have thought of yourself, create Genius mixes in iTunes and sync the ones you like to your iPod nano. Then tap the Genius Mixes icon and rediscover songs you haven't heard in a while--or find music you forgot you even had.

FM Radio--Touch that Dial

Radio nano

Ride the airwaves on iPod nano. The FM tuner shows the artist, song or program you're listening to. Just tap to see the radio controls, flick the radio dial to change stations, and tap to set your favourites.

Live Pause

If you need to take a break from listening, don't miss a minute of radio time with Live Pause. Tap to pause a song or show, then tap again to continue where you left off. you can rewind as far back as 15 minutes or fast-forward to catch up to the live broadcast.

Fitness--Meet your New Personal Trainer

Clip and go. And go. And go

The new iPod nano design actually helps keep you fit. It's portable and wearable, which makes it runnable, walkable and workout-able. Clip it on and control your music with just a tap or swipe of a finger, so you can stay focused without fumbling around. For your run, walk or trip to the gym, a little iPod nano goes a long way.

Stay Fit with Every Step

iPod nano doubles as a pedometer, which makes it the ideal exercise partner. It keeps track of your steps and helps you meet your fitness goals. Just clip it on and walk on. You can create a daily step goal and check your progress when you upload all your data to the Nike+ website.

Rock Your Workout

With the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (sold separately), iPod nano keeps you motivated from warm-up to cooldown on your run or in the gym. Lace up a pair of Nike+ running shoes and clip on your iPod nano. You’ll watch the miles unfold and hear real-time voice feedback along with your favorite songs. In the gym, connect iPod nano to a Nike + iPod compatible cardio machine. It records your pace, time and distance as you work out and rock out.

iTunes--For Your iPod Playing Pleasure

Everything you Need to be Entertained

iTunes is the best way to fill your iPod nano with the latest music, podcasts, audiobooks and more. It’s also the best way to browse and organise the ever-expanding digital media collection on your Mac or PC. Everything you buy on the iTunes Store--and any music from CDs you import--appears in your iTunes library. You can make your own playlists, create Genius playlists, choose Genius Mixes and sync it all to your iPod nano.

The World's #1 Music Store

Load your iPod nano with your favorite tunes. Or browse over 13 million songs and discover even more. You can search by artist name, song or album title and handpick exactly the songs you want. Want some help finding new music? The Genius sidebar recommends new music based on the songs you already love. When you find something that sparks your interest, listen to the free 30-second preview. Click once to buy the song and it starts downloading instantly. It’s the fastest, easiest way to build a digital music collection for your iPod nano.

Built-in Accessibility

iPod nano comes with accessibility features that help people with disabilities enjoy music, audiobooks and more.


iPod nano features VoiceOver, the world’s first gesture-based screen reader. Touch the screen to hear a description of the item under your finger, then double-tap, drag, or flick to control iPod nano. Use the optional Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic to control your music without looking at the screen. VoiceOver tells you the name of the song or artist--and it speaks 29 languages.

White on Black

If you prefer higher contrast, iPod nano lets you change the display to white on black. Use the White on Black feature in any application, as well as on the Home screen.

Mono Audio

If your hearing is limited in one ear, turn on Mono Audio to route audio into both earbuds so you can hear both channels in either ear.

Colour Name: GraphiteSize Name: 16GB
This is my first Ipod (or MP3 player!). I was originally looking at the Ipod Shuffle but decided that I would prefer a touch screen so that I could find what I wanted to listen to easier and I chose this one as it was small and would fit into my bag. I was going to buy the 8GB one but decided for the extra money I would go for the 16GB - and I have half filled it already.

I bought the graphite one as although I looked at the other colours I decided that I could personalise it to any colour with silicone skins if I wanted to.

When it arrived it didn't come with many instructions - apart from how to turn on and that you needed iTunes - but if you search on the Apple website you can download a PDF user guide [...] which I have found to be very useful. I found it easy to download music onto it - and accidentally wipe it off again! - but you only do these things once and I have resolved that problem and put it all back on - it was all to do with 'Sync' in iTunes and unticking the boxes (all will become clear if you do buy one)

I find the touch screen easy to use (although some say it is small) but then it is a small piece of kit! (It measures approximately 3.5cm x 4cm and is incredibly light). And it didn't take long to work out where to go to find what you were looking for. It is really easy to scroll up and down to find music or artists as there is a line to the right of the screen which allows you to scroll through alphabetically - you can then just 'let go' when you have found the letter you want and it goes straight to track or titles beginning with that letter.

Haven't used the headset supplied yet as I bought some tube speakers and use it with those. Really easy for just carring around the house to whichever room you are in.

Colour Name: GreenSize Name: 8GB
I have only been using my new nano for a couple of weeks, but I'm already hooked.

I bought it as an alternative to my old 1GB shuffle. I was finding the lack of a screen and small capacity very frustrating, so 8GB is a luxury for me!

It is very attractive, as you'd expect from Apple. I have added a silicone skin and screen protector to mine to keep it scratch free.

I like the menus and how you scroll through them, they are arranged into 'artists', 'albums', 'tracks' and 'audiobooks' etc with a button on the main menu for each. The buttons are the right size for my fingers and easy to use on the go.

The shake to shuffle function looks a bit odd to people watching but it is handy not to have to look through menus to change a track.

Radio is easy to set and use.

A bonus for me is the pedometer which I didn't know existed until I booted it up. It is linked to the 'Nike plusactive' website it tracks your steps and shows how far you've walked. I find I challenge myself to do a few extra steps every day.

Sound quality is fine from the standard headphones, but I use my own headphones with it because I find them more comfortable.

Battery life is good, I wish it came with a mains charger but they can be bought separately.

Overall I'm delighted with my new toy!

Colour Name: GraphiteSize Name: 8GB
I have had my ipod nano a few days now and here is my review:
Appearance and general:
This thing is tiny! It has a 1.5 inch screen and is very thin and light. I got mine in a pink colour and it look fantastic!
The battery life is impressive. You can get hours of playback- I think I get about 20...
Loading music on is very easy. You need to install itunes and load up any CDs and then they can be synced onto the device.
Here are all of the features on the ipod nano:
You simply elet your favourite songs and create your own albums. I find this feature very useful when I just want to listen to half an hour of my favourite songs.
Genius mixes.
This is a feature where, from what you have been listening to and what is in your library, it suggests new songs and albums for you to try. I found this feature good at times but it mostly goes unused.
This, obviously, is the main part of the ipod. You can select what songs to play via Artists, Songs, Albums, Genres or composers. Music quality is excellent, but I would recommend that you buy some half decent headphones. You can shake to shuffle. There is a voiceover feature, by holding on the button on the apple earphones, it can tell you what song you are listening to and who it is by in a robot voice. I do not use this feature and so did switch to better quality earphones.
Not the best. But what, really, can you expect? Some stations have decent quality, like the local stations the nano finds for you. You can select certain stations as your favourites, and then you can find them easily. You can also stop and rewind the radio.
High quality stuff. There are loads of podcasts to choose from, for free, on the itunes store.

Colour Name: SilverSize Name: 8GB
Most of the Mp3 players I have owned have been of the Apple brand, which have been- The ipod mini, 2nd Gen Nano and 3rd Gen Apple. With my 3rd gen ipod reaching the end of its lifespan and my cd collection out growing my Ipods capacity I was looking to buy a new Ipod.

Now I'm not stupid enough to waste my money on the Ipod classic or an Ipod touch (might as well get the Iphone), I knew that there was no point in investing in an Ipod shuffle as it would have no where near that capacity I would need to accommodate my music, so my natural instinct would be to go for the Ipod nano 6th Gen.

When I looked at what the new Nano the Ipod had to offer, I met it with quite a bit of apprehension as when I fist saw it I thought it was like an Ipod shuffle, but with a touch screen. However, after closer inspection I think it is probably the best Ipod Apple has made and here is why:

Price: some people have actually complained that the Nano comes with fewer features, but maintains its price. Well I don't really want an Ipod which can take pictures and video recording. Also having looked around the internet, the 5th Gen Nano is a lot more expensive than the 6th Gens.

Size: Yes it is small, but then it is an Ipod Nano. Also even though it is small, the screen display is rather sharp and there writing of song and album titles is very legible.

Functionality: Gone is the Ipod iconic wheel, replaced by the touch screen. I believe that this improves navigation as you are able to work your way into different areas a lot quicker and easer. There are also buttons which help you in increase or decrease the volume and also there is another button which is used to turn the ipod on/off, it can also be toggled to be used to stop/play music or skip tracks.
