    This review is from: Apple iPod Nano 16GB Slate (7th Generation) (Electronics)

    The latest iPod Nano is an update to the current state of the art in ultra-compact music players and it represents incremental but important improvements over its predecessors with only a few minor trade-offs. I’m convinced it represents a substantial functional upgrade for most users.

    Its major advantage, in my opinion, is actually its slightly-larger size in comparison to the 5th generation. Although the smaller form factor of the previous Nano was remarkable for its extreme compactness, it actually made the device somewhat cumbersome to use. Its touch-screen was too susceptible to unintended inputs and it couldn’t be easily held in one hand while manipulating its controls. Attempts to control it via screen-input while clipped onto one’s clothing tended to be futile: you’d need to un-clip the device, then hold it in one hand and manipulate its touch-screen with the other. While the tiny size and convenient clip made it practically disappear while in use, it could be an ergonomic nightmare to actually interact with.

    The new Nano is still tiny but much better for one-handed use. My index finger comfortably sits on the three-way volume/play/pause button (itself a major improvement) while my thumb has easy access to the sleep/wake button, the home button and the improved, larger, multi-touch-enabled screen. This easy one-handed control has the significant practical advantage of not requiring the interruption of my activities to switch, for example, between podcasts, music playlists and FM radio.

    Other improvements follow logically from the Nano’s new shape. The screen’s larger proportions allow all the main “apps” to show up on a single home screen, so less fiddling is typically required for switching. Videos and photos become practical on a screen of these proportions, so it’s perfectly reasonable to load some viewable content in addition to the audio content that will no doubt remain the Nano’s main reason for existence. With few pixels, photos take up very little memory. The screen has neither the stunning colors nor the retina resolution of the premium iDevices, but photos still show up crisply and become the modern equivalent of the now-obsolete “wallet”-sized photos people used to carry. Video content is surprisingly usable as long as you can set the Nano in a viewable position – for example, on a cardio machine at the gym. The Nano supports rotation, so displaying the beautiful panos you’ve made with your new iPhone is simply a matter of rotating the device to the horizontal and then looking very, very closely. Maybe bring a magnifying glass.

    More important for most people, the new Nano is an improved device for playing music. The “Home” button is a good antidote to the common experience of getting lost in the old Nano’s sometimes-inscrutable layers of touch screens, bringing you immediately back to the home screen without interfering with playback. An even bigger practical improvement is the addition of the play/pause button on the volume control, a feature lifted from the (now unfortunately absent) remote-equipped earphones of many previous iPods. It’s worth a few minutes’ time to familiarize yourself with this button’s very clever functions: click to play or to pause, double-click for next track, triple-click for previous track (even when in shuffle mode), double-click-and-hold for cueing (great for skipping forward in podcasts), and so on. Most routine playback functions are accessible through this simple and very welcome interface and can be accomplished while diverting little attention from whatever you’re otherwise engaged in.

    The list of major upgrades doesn’t end there. The inclusion of Bluetooth will make the Nano usable, for the first time, with many car audio systems and also with wireless Bluetooth headsets and remote Bluetooth speaker systems. The FM radio is much better than I would have imagined if I hadn’t used the previous Nano, with legitimately excellent reception and a very nice interface that lets you select unlimited numbers of “presets.” I’ve used small portable radios in the past, and maybe there are some other good ones out there, but the ones I’ve experienced have been terrible. I’m personally still attached to FM, and this level of FM quality would make the Nano a terrific device even if it did nothing else.

    In general I find the new Nano to be a beautiful, nearly-flawless little piece of practical technology that can do things which, not that long ago, I would not have expected to be possible within my lifetime. While it’s not inexpensive, it has real life-improving potential for people who love music or who want to remain portably connected to a world of podcasted information. Being smaller than a credit card in two of three dimensions, it fits easily into the smallest pocket. While jaded consumers of technology can claim it’s a mere incremental improvement over its predecessors, I prefer to see it as an…
