    Item Description

    Redesigned for music and Multi-Touch, the sixth generation Apple iPod nano, in 8GB or 16GB, is smaller and lighter than ever, and is so much more than just an MP3 player.

    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


    The iPod Nano costs less than before, is easier to navigate, and includes more Nike Plus fitness tracking capabilities. It's also still the best clip-on music player money can buy.


    Many features have disappeared over the years, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.

    Bottom Line

    The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

    Rated 4.4 out of 5★by 71reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★by gotta love it! I don't want to appear overenthusiastic, but when I lost my 4th generation iPod I looked at the 5th generation and the new nano and was imressed with the new features on the nano. I really like the size and shape--it's handy--and the touchscreen. It's user friendly. I really like it and use it all the time. 10/14/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★by OMG; so handy It might not do as much as the 5th gen. nano i lost. but it sure was worth the $155.00It being touch screen only makes it better :DAlso it clips (very well) so it never falling out of my pocket and im never freaking out on where it is.Fully recommend it :) 10/18/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★by Gift for 18 year old Brother I bought this iPod sight unseen for my brother who was turning 18 year old. It was mailed directly to his house and he can't stop thanking me for it- partly because he has always wanted an iPod and because it works great.Only regret is that I went the extra $35 or so and got the 16gb one. Also, the accessory kit is worth the extra cash. I highly recommend this for a gift for teens and young adults! It is perfect pocket size and my other brothers are planning on getting ones as well because the Classic iPod is too bulky 07/28/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★by Despite the very small size, a good ipod. It takes a little while to get used to the small screen. Very light so make sure you clip it securely and probably best in an inside pocket. 11/02/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★by APPLE I-POD NANO AMAZING! I recently join a gym and borrowed my granddaughter's I-Pod Nano to see if I'd like it. I fell in love with it and purchased one. The music coming out of that tiny device is amazing and it's clarity is unbelievable. I was very impressed with the prompt and efficient service I recd from Wal-Mart. I ordered it online, then they sent me an e-mail msg that it was ready to be picked up in the Victoria store. Went there the same day and got it! I was extremely satisfied with the process. 10/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★by good ipod and can wear like a watch while running Great apple product. Can view photos, hear radio etc.No Video. I wish price is less than $100. 09/02/2011
    Rated 1 out of 5★by Small yet bulky Bought this sixth generation iPod trying to save the cost of buying a fifth generation. What a mistake! This thing is so small that it is impossible to work with. I have average size hands and found the touch screen very tricky to work with. Made it very hard to control. The touch screen might have been okay if Apple had left it the same size as the fifth generation. 10/07/2011
    Rated 1 out of 5★by Too much for too little This product is nearly the same price as an iPod Touch and does so much less I shouldn't have bought this one. Also, it doesn't hold it's charge for a night even when turned off and not being used. 11/05/2010
