It's simple: if you want to buy a functional player with video recording, radio, good display, metal casing and traditional controls, you should consider the iPod Nano G5. That is, you should consider the previous generation model.
If it is more of a fine accessory that you are looking for, then you should go for the year 2010 Nano. It's not quite appropriate to begin a review with a conclusion, but just stay with me as I have more to say.This time, I received a utilitarian steel Nano, which looks very nice. Actually, the color is dark grey. The metal is smooth, solid, there is naturally no squeaking or flex there. Save for a display instead of the buttons on the front panel, the new Nano looks very much like the two years old Shuffle.
The overall dimensions are 37.5 х 40.9 х 8.78 mm, and the weight is 21.1 grams. In the bundle, one can also find a USB cable and a pair of trivial earphones. As always, the packaging is beyond praise; it is a nice little box, which one doesn't feel like throwing away.
Everyone is also excited about the looks of the player, willing to get their hands on it. Once you mention the small sensor screen they immediately start touching it, playing with it, etc.
The screen is 1.54 inches wide, has a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels, and the menu is handy. As you know, the screen is touch-sensitive and uses a capacitive sensor. It is bright, the viewing angles are decent, and that's pretty much it.
