New iPod Nano Loses Video Playback and Camera

Posted by at 3:25 pm on September 1, 2010

The new  new iPod nano is kind of a hybrid between the Shuffle and the iPod Touch.  But will it hit the spot  and be a hit?

How it changed from the Past Model

First thing you notice it that it is square, like Apple took a design que from the  Sandisk slotradio. Next you notice all the previous generation buttons are missing. So is the  vertically oriented landscape display and camera. In there place is a square multi-touch capable screen large enough to accommodate 4 icons –  240-by-240-pixel resolution. While it’s a bit larger than the new iPod Shuffle,  it’s 46% smaller and 42% lighter than the previous generation Nano

The multi-touch display gives you full access to your music as well as other useful functionality like an FM radio, connectivity with Nike’s accessories and even the ability to view tiny photo slideshows.  Up to 24 hours of music playback when fully charged and an 80% re-charge only takes 90 minutes.

Say Good-Bye to  Video

Besides no longer able to shoot, the new  Shuffle  play does not play video, just music, audio books and podcasts.  We here at ToT think the loss of video playback may hurt sales and make the previous model become an E-bay hit.

Available in 7 colors starting next week the new multi-touch iPod nano comes in 2 capacities: 8GB for  $149 and 16GB for  $179.
