New Apple iPod NanoRockalicious.
Colour isn't the only brilliant new iPod Nano feature. For those about to rock, we give you nine amazing colours. But that’s only part of the story. Feel the curved, all-aluminum and glass design and you won’t want to put iPod nano down. The accelerometer comes to iPod nano. Give it a shake to shuffle your music. Turn it sideways to view Cover Flow. And play games designed with your moves in mind. The new Genius feature turns iPod nano into your own highly intelligent, personal DJ. It creates playlists by finding songs in your library that go great together.

iPod Nano with Genius functionality

A musical Genius.

Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. The Genius feature finds the songs in your music library that go great together and makes a Genius Playlist for you. It’s like having your own highly intelligent, personal DJ.

Shake to shuffle songs

Shake your groove thing.

Sometimes, we could all use a little unpredictability. And now you can shake to shuffle your music. Just give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. You’ll always be surprised by what you’ll hear.

Rock and roll over.

Tilt or turn iPod nano on its side, and you’ll listen, watch, and play in new ways. You can flip through your album art with Cover Flow. Or, vertically speaking, see more albums and artists on the screen at one time.

New games made for the new nano

Let the games begin.

Now you can get in on games made especially for iPod nano and the accelerometer. They respond to the way you move, so they’re immersive, addictive, and a blast. iPod nano comes with Maze, which lets you work your way through vast mazes by tilting and moving. You can find even more games on the iTunes Store.

Even your photos rock.

Pull hundreds of photos from your pocket and share them wherever you go. Hold iPod nano upright and see your photos in portrait view. Turn it on its side to see them in landscape. Your photos look beautiful in their proper aspect ratio on the vibrant, 320-by-240-resolution display

love love love it. Great new ipod, gorgeous purple colour I had a silver nano and 3rd generation I found did not have enough memory. Now I have 2 audio books, all my cds, podcasts, music videos and Im still not at half capacity. So glad I bought this new ipod. Would recomment to anyone. Only drawback I am having to buy another travel charger but I can live with that. So easy to use and when I am in bed listening to my audio books I can adjust volume etc with my thumb without looking. Such a novely being able to watch tv on such a little screen. What a great invention. Some people knock apple ipods but lets face it the design is stunning and the other mp3s just dont come close. Buy one you wont be sorry.Its just been on holiday with me and I hate flying get very bored and aggravated with noisy people that I seem to get stuck with. Not this time, 4 hour flight passed great watching Ashes to Ashes series one on ipod. Best thing I have ever bought.

This nano has had some vast improvements from the first generation all those years back. The screen has enlarged, and is very good. The colours and clarity is exceptional for something this small. It is a lot thinner, less than 1cm, and has a nice curved shape. It has a new feature not before seen on the nano, let alone any ipod, and this is a shaking the ipod to change track. The genius software is very good and I find very useful and selects suitable matches for my music library. Also, new with this generation is the accelerometer built in. This allows you to turn the ipod on its side to watch video. The price is very good, but is still expensive for its capacity. However, this is made up for in superb free software that is very easy to use and master. Also, this is by far, the most accessory orrientated MP3/4 player. However saying this; some of the new generation ipods including this one don't work on old docking stations. You may want to be aware of this if you intend to use old accesories.

I've had one of these for a couple of weeks now and so far, it's fantastic. When these came out, I thought it'd be an ideal time to replace my old 2nd gen Nano.

I cannot fault the design at all. It's very similar to the design of the 2nd gen Nano in ways and it's very sensible. I don't know why they designed the 3rd gen Nanos the way they did... it was taking a step backwards. The design of this Nano is excellent. It is a good aluminium casing, which doesn't get covered in fingerprints and doesn't scratch easily (the colour choices are fantastic too!), the screen and click wheel are well placed and the screen is the perfect size. The curved design works tremendously well... in width and height, there's hardly any difference between this and my 2nd gen Nano, but the curved design makes it feel a lot smaller. It is easily small enough to fit in the pockets of all my jeans.

I found set-up to be very quick and painless - I was ready to go with it in 15 minutes. Obviously, I already had iTunes installed, with all my tunes on the program already, so that sped things up, inevitably. But, if my experience of setting up my first iPod is anything to go by - that was quick and painless also. I believe it took me between half an hour and one hour (including installing iTunes, adding my songs to the library and loading everything onto the iPod). Battery life is quite good too. I use it for approximately an hour and a half a day, 5 days a week and so far I've only had to charge it once (yesterday).

In terms of using the device, it's ever so easy. They have kept things pretty consistent, so it didn't take me long at all to adapt to using this one. I'm sure that first-time users will also find it very simple.

Verified Purchase
The iPod nano is a gorgeous little beast. When it arrived I couldn't believe how tiny it is! And with the curved sides it's very tactile and easy to handle. The purple version is very goodlooking indeed, and the 8gB is more than enough for my music and photos (so far that's all I've loaded on to it). The Cover Flow feature is pretty nifty (if hardly essential); the quality of the picture on the tiny screen is fantastic, my photos look bright and crisp and the album cover artwork looks great. The Genius feature is really good too, it brings up some great playlists although be warned, it doesn't work on every track. Most of them, but not all. I've had a go at the pre-loaded games as well, which are good fun. Sound quality is awesome - I mostly listen to mine through speakers, at home or in the car, and it sounds great. I love it.

I already have an iPod Nano 3rd generation, and I said to myself I wasn't going to purchase a new one this year. However I couldn't help myself when I visited the Apple Store and was completely won over by this little beauty. I was drawn to the purple one this time round (my previous ones being blue), and I just had to have one! It really is a fantastic gadget - design and function wise. You can't help but look at it in amazement. I can't fault it apart from the fact the battery doesn't seem to last as long as the 3rd gen and there's still the same old problem of missing artwork on cover flow. However the new functions and voice recorder capabilities (you will need to buy Apple's upgrade earphones with mic to use that function), make up for this (yay!) Also, it seems a lot lighter than the 3rd generation.

I can see the other reviews are complaining that the Nano 4th gen is not compatable with previous iPod accessories, in particular an fm transmitter to play it in your car. A couple of months ago I bought a Griffin ITrip Autopilot from Amazon for my 3rd Gen Nano. Well it works perfectly with my 4th gen too!, so I totally recommend it.
