The new iPod nano

The new iPod nano

We were expecting an updated iPod nano in brushed Aluminium, and sure enough we got it. We also got colours, is it just me? I'm getting deja vú for the iPod mini here? The new iPod nano comes in 2G, 4G and 8G models priced at $149 (£99 inc VAT), $199 (£129 inc VAT) and $249 (£169 inc VAT) respectively. Only the 4G model comes in a choice of colours, the 2G model comes in brushed Aluminium only, while with the 8G model, you can have any colour you like so long as it's black.

The screen is 40% brighter than before, and an extended battery life, with Apple claiming 24 hours between charges. The new iPod nano is available today.

Update: Justin Williams unpacks his new iPod nano.

Update: While at the same time several other people are disassembling the new nano to see what's going on inside...

Update: Are Technica stress test the new nano, up to and including putting it in the washing machine...
