Other than the 4-inch Retina iPod touch, Apple’s another new addition to the iPod family is the 7th generation iPod nano. At 5mm thin, the reinvented iPod nano is the thinnest iPod the firm has even built, and gets the largest display ever built in to an iPod nano. Its new design adds a home button for users to get back to homescreen quickly, just like the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
The new iPod nano comes with a 2.5-inch multitouch display with 240×320 resolution. It supports Bluetooth for wireless listening with Bluetooth headphones, speakers and cars. The player supports AAC, Protected AAC, HE-AAC, MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible, Apple Lossless, AIFF and WAV audio formats and H.264 and MPEG-4 video formats.
The nano 7th gen also gets FM radio and built-in fitness features including a pedometer and support for Nike+. Its built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery allows up to 30 hours of music playback and 3.5 hours of video playback. It uses the new Lightning connector and comes with EarPods earphones.
Apple will release the 16GB iPod nano 7th in October for $149. It comes in pink, yellow, blue, green, purple, silver and slate colors. There is also a special (PRODUCT) RED version.
