Apple iPod nano (6G) 16 GB
Advantages: small, compact, touch screen, strong clip, holds up to 4000 songs, battery life is great
Disadvantages: Fiddly until you get the hang of it.
After my success with the Ipod shuffle I put the new ipod nano 6G on my christmas list last year. As they were available in colours I requested santa to pick me up a pink one.
Santa did infact get me my nano in pink from Amazon uk. It cost £120 could cost less now. You can get the ipod nano in Currys, Dixons, Hmv , Argos and online. The colours available are blue, black, silver, pink, yellow, green and purple.
Ipod nano 6G comes in a clear perspex box with the nano on show so you can see it in the box, inside the box the earphones and some instructions. I hate the instructions from Apple because the booklet is so small, the writing is tiny hard to read and understand also.
You also get the charging usb cable and set of apple ipod earphones.
You should charge the nano for around six hours to start with giving the battery a full charge before the use prolongs the battery life. The ipod nano is small and not far of the size of the Ipod shuffle. The back of the Ipod is pink in colour , contains a clip for fixing the nano onto clothing etc, and the front has the screen, this is a touch screen, and very responsive. The nano screen is roughly 1.5 inches. You can drag and tap different things on the screen , its more like an Ipod touch just mini sized. I like the fact it shows the art work to albums or songs I have on the nano.
To use the apple Ipods for music you have to use Itunes, I do have an Itunes account its accessed via my laptop. I connect my ipod with the usb charging cable and plug it in, instantly my Itunes pop up and start to sync my ipod making sure its always up to date.
Itunes is daunting at first until you get the hang of it.
There are no buttons on the ipod nano screen ,as stated the nano has a touch screen. It took a while for me to get used to scrolling through my Ipod and felt my fingers were a little big as the Ipod screen jumped from one thing to the next however this was me just getting used to the touch screen. You can upload around 4000 songs onto this 16gb nano although I only have 450 on it, don't think ill use the maximum amount of space. You can create playlists on the ipod nano or just have it shuffle the songs.
Ipod nano has many features my favourites are the radio and pedometer I use these the most. I love this little nano, I personally never had a problem with songs jumping , interference or crashing of the screen. I find it easy to use and even now having it for 9 months I still find new things I never knew about on the nano. If you take time to explore the nano and have a play around with it, controlling it becomes easier. When out a walk or jogging I find it useful to clip the nano on inside my jacket, the clip on the back of the nano is very strong and secure the unit onto the clothing well, it does not fall off even when running or jogging. You can buy little extras for the nano, silicone cases an arm band for having the nano attached to your arm for sporty people etc.
I use my nano most when travelling back and forth to work via the train, its a nice way to relax and shut out the noise around me. I charge my nano only once a week and the battery holds for the seven days, that's with me listening to music for two hours everyday.
I recommend the ipod nano 6g.
Summary: My travel buddy keeps me sane.
