"Hehe......COOL, cheaper than the 2GB and still holds all my favourite songs"
Well i bought my iPOD nano from abroad, obviously because i got some discount and of course i was shopping at the duty free area of the airport. Well i bought the iPod nano but what use was it to me if i had no songs on them? Well i came home and it appeared that after leaving my computer turned off for so long, it didn't work......No computer to charge my iPOD, no computer to transfer songs onto it and no internet to download any more songs..............make sure you have a PC that works.
I received my iPOD in a compact box with the iPOD, ear phones with black soft cushion ear buds. I also received a case which does wonders and stops my iPOD nano from scratching or getting dirty. I also received a USB cable which is also used for charging and a dock adaptor.
Also included was a Cd containing the software iTUNES which is perfect for transfering songs and pictures from your computer to your nano. It's really easy to use, and is available for both Apple Mac and Windows.
The battery life is
an incredible 14 hours which is pretty good in comparison with my previous mp3 player which lasted a mere 6 hours which is less than half of what the nano can last for.
There are numerous things you can do on yuor iPOD nano whilst listening to music at the same time. Such as go through your photo collection, maybe by creating a slideshow. Or you might want to play games. You can easily sort and search through your music by genre or artist of the music or even album which i find quite useful when looking for my favourite song.
Well Anyway..........here are the specs:
*It weighs only 1.5 ounces which is incredibly light, especailly if you compare it to the much larger iPODS.
*Size is 3.5 x 1.6 x 0.27 which was only to be expected it was going to be this small.
*The Screen display is 1.5 inches and is colour screen unlike some of the previous iPODs. The picture quality is really quite good, and in terms of photographs and pics, you can store them as Jpeg, BMP, and GIF most commonly.
* Can store upto 240 songs but not always, it depends on the size of each of your songs. For me this wasn't enough so i ended up giving my nano to my sister and then buying a new one.
*Slim design and really simple with a touch sensitive pad. Easy to use. Believe it or not, your probably wandering why the back of the nano is metal and like a mirror which then leads onto the sides.... well, it kind of creates the illusion that the nano is smaller or shoudl i say thinner than it actually is---quite ingenious!!
*So many accesories you can by the way such as the wrist strap and the socks for these devices.
*Has games -- wow -- although don't play too much, it seems to use up quite a lot of battery which seems to last approximately 14 hours before it needs charging again. But this is simply done by plugging it into the USB port on your computer.
*Stopwatch timer feature,
*Also a calendar and notes section but these can only be transferred from your computer
*Create photo slideshows and the graphics appear to be quite good on the small screen on the nano, but beware, photos also take up the memory so you wont be able to add as many songs on to your nano.
*You can easily create playlists simply by selcting the song and holding down on the main button....great. ... now you've got a selection of songs ready to listen to whenever you feel fit to.
*MORE WHAT I THINK*
Well i've already explained myself above but otherwise it's a great buy especially if you can't afford the 2GB or the 4 GB, and it really is a simple and effective design and cool to be seen with. Listen to your music wherever you want and whenever and another last thing, the volume contol is great so don't worry about it. I use the volume on it's lowest setting and it still sounds loud to me.
On the down side, it's durability isn't perfect. The chances of dropping it are quite high and its only very fragile so even one hard or high drop could seriously ruin your iPOD nano. And also the fact that it scratches extremely easily is another downside. The best thing to do when you get one of these is use the suede case supplied with it better still you can buy socks for these and other cases to protect your iPOD and better still, by buying a case not only are you protecting your iPOD but you're personalising it as well.
I highly recommend this iPOD nano. It's excellent!
Thanks for reading my review. Please take a moment to review it or comment it. Thanks a lot.
This is a really good review. It's entertaining whilst still getting the information across. My boyfriend has this product and i was suprised to learn you can get them engraved if you buy them from Apple.
