Gadget-Of-The-Day: The New & Impoved iPod Nano

The new iPod Nano....
Cool!!!!

New design. New features. Now in 8GB and 16GB. iPod nano rocks like never before.



So, according to wikipedia, the new and improved iPod Nano.... returns to the narrow form factor of the 2G model, while retaining and rotating the 2-inch (51 mm) screen from the 3G model. It is also thinner than both the 2G and 3G, measuring 90.7 mm (3.6 inches) tall by 38.7 mm (1.5 inches) wide by 6.2 mm (0.24 inch) thick, and weighing 36.8 grams (1.3 ounces). It has a curved aluminum shell and glass screen.

The six previous colors (silver, black, mint, turquoise, red, and pink) have been replaced by silver, gunmetal, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, and pink. Apple markets the new colours as:
which closely resembles ROYGBIV (Roy G. Biv is a mnemonic for the sequence of hues in the visible spectrum, in rainbows, and in order from longest to shortest wavelength: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). Also added is an accelerometer which allows the nano to switch between portrait and landscape display modes and shuffle songs when shaken. The UI has also been refreshed, adding a more stylized look in keeping with the new hardware design. It also includes the new "Genius" feature, introduced by Apple the same day. The Genius feature automatically creates playlists based on an algorithm built by Apple.

It is additionally touted as "the most environmentally friendly iPod [Apple] has ever made", containing arsenic-free glass and a BFR-, mercury-, and PVC-free design. It is also claimed to be highly recyclable. The iPod Nano 4G will be shipped in cases similar to the 2G ones with the clear view in the front, and is marketed in two models: 8GB and 16GB.
