“iPod Nano”

published 29/02/2012

Proeasy to use, looks fab

Consnone!

I never really bothered with an MP3 player or iPod as I don't usually walk anywhere alone so didn't see much point in buying one but once my daughter started nursery I thought it would be nice to have something for the walk home. My brother gave me his old iPod but it was really on its last legs...

“I love my iPod”

published 01/04/2010

ProGreat design, small, easy to use

ConsBattery life can run out when you are on the move.

I have wanted an iPod ever since they first came out. I saved up several times and whenever I came to buy one I either changed my mind or bought a cheap mp3 player instead so that it didn't use all the money I've saved. Four mp3 players, and a much bigger interest in music later I finally decided...

Got my first iPod for my Christmas, to replace my old MP3 player and I couldn't have been happier. After getting used to the initial fidgety, circling my finger round the buttons to navigate the menus I was having great fun playing music, games and videos. The 4G nano is different from the 2G in...
