"...I decided to give the Apple brand a chance. The iPod nano was my first choice since the 8 gigabyte storage capacity was sufficient and the design beautiful. He also looked pretty solid. The Nano came in a very small box which includes earphones and a USB charger were included. A disadvantage is that there is no plug included. It must be purchased separately. If you don't want to buy the charge then you can charge the iPod via the computer. The ..." Read review

Excellent sound quality, good battery, screen good for photos

AdvantagesAttractive, intuitive with good battery

DisadvantagesDelicate screen prone to scratches, screen too small for video.

"...of a very high standard. Apple have somehow squeezed a lot of juice in to it. I use it almost every day for at least an hour and find I don't have to recharge it for approx 10 days.....that's close to 10hrs continuous play which I think is pretty good. ===Screen=== This is the problem area, in my opinion. It is made of a toughened plastic but is very easy to scratch, especially if you have keys, lint in your pocket. I would always recommend a case ..." Read review

better than I expected it to be!

Advantagesresponsive touch screen, sleek design

Disadvantagespoor sound quality - standard for ipods

"...paying more for the name APPLE rather than the quality of the MP3 player. After my Sony MP3 player broke I needed a quick replacement that was cheap and I managed to get one of these on discount from work for around £37 - which was a bargain (although I do miss the sound quality of my Sony). Anyway, I was pleasantly suprised by the quality of this little MP3 player. The MP3 player itself is tiny and can fit in the smallest of pockets. It comes in ..." Read review

iPod nano - Always take your music with you Review with images

AdvantagesDesign, design, design, build quality, iTunes, camera I guess

Disadvantagesprice is a bit high, battery only USB rechargable

"=== My experience === I got my iPod nano as a gift close to 2 years ago, and I think it's safe to say I've "tested" it in almost every possible way. if you're looking for a stylish mp3 player, that can be used to keep youeself amused in the classroom as well as while trail running in the woods, you don't have to look any further. === Sound quality === The sound this little device can produce can be quite amazing. If you're one of those audiophiles, ..." Read review

TINY, CUTE DEVICE

Advantagessmall size

Disadvantagesnone

"I got 1 of these for my Christmas present from my work last year. There was a choice of presents for me to choose but I have to admit that the reason I chose this was because I thought it would be easy to sell on e-bay. After all I have my iPhone for music and also an MP3 player if i'm on the move, although this looks nice then I felt it was an expensive thing that was not needed. Needless to say I changed my mind when I got this and still have it! ..." Read review

Product Information for "Apple iPod nano MC688LL/A 8 GB" »

Manufacturer's product description

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. 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 display. Sometimes, people 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.
