"iPod Nano 7, the best by far..."

Why did I do it? Since my (and it was one of the originals!) old iPod broke a few years ago, I have tried other makes of music player, always tempted by the fact that they were considerably cheaper, and seemed to offer similar music quality. But after all the difficulties involved in transferring music to them, and then finding it on poorly designed menus, I splashed out again for a new iPod Nano.

What a joy it was to have a device that fits so easily into the hand, to have a menu that is both clear and logical and to have it synchronise so effortlessly with my computer. I only wish I had bought one earlier.

It feels like a quality device, which of course you would expect from Apple. The screen has just the right amount of sensitivity/ responsiveness. I will only use it for music, so cannot comment on video playback etc, but I am sure the bluetooth will come in useful. And before I forget the newly designed "ear buds" give a sound quality on par with my very expensive headphones.

    So what's new and different with the 7th generation model (apart from new earbuds)? Any new bells and whistles or just the same old?

Product Information : Apple iPod nano (7 Gen) 16 GB

Manufacturer's product description

About the size of a credit card - and just 5.4 mm thin - the iPod nano is the thinnest iPod ever made. The 2.5-inch multi-touch display is nearly twice as big as the display on the previous iPod nano, so you can see more of the music, photos, and videos you love. Buttons let you quickly play, pause, change songs, or adjust the volume. The smooth anodized aluminum design makes iPod nano feel as good as it sounds.
