Advantages: lots of space for music, lots of features
The ipod nano was the first ipod I owned and loved it, until I discovered the ipod touch that it.
It is very light and portable and comes in a variety of colours includings black, blue, red and green. It is a 4cm colour lcd screen and a large toggle wheel.
The screen is used to view the name of the song you are listening to as well as viewing the artwork. There is a menu available to let you create a playlist (only listen to those favourite songs in the order you want to) as well as listening to songs by a particular artist or album. The screen also shows the volume levels and lets you view a list of all your songs on the ipod.
The toggle can be used with one finger and lets you play, fastforward, rewind and pause songs by pressing the relevant button. If you move your finger clockwise or anticlockwise around the toggle it will change the volume quite easily.
This comes in different gb's. GB's identifies how many songs can be stored. 8gb will hold around 2000 songs, whereas a 2gb would hold about 500 songs. 2000 is plenty to store and I have never filled mine and ran out of space. I am always adding and deleting songs as and when my preferences change.
Songs can be downloaded via the computer through purchasing songs on i-tunes or through transferring from a cd.
Because this has a screen it is possible to watch programmes. I have watched episodes of Friends on this while working out at the gym. Makes the time pass faster.
Other features include being able to store thousands of pictures. This is very useful and I can put my holiday pictures on this and then show friends and family with ease.
This can be charged via a usb cable plugged into the computer. It takes a couple of hours to fully charge.
Instead of listening through headphones, a unit can be purchased so that the ipod can fit in and has speakers so everyone can hear. One example is buying an alarm clock where the ipod fits in and when the alarm goes off in the morning the music plays.
Other features include calendars and able to make notes and do to do lists. These I found are all very useful.
This can be bought from lots of high street stores and make a perfect present for that special someone.
Summary: Perfect present for self
