Apple iPod Nano (seventh generation, 2012) series Video Transcript
-Hey. I'm Donald Bell for cnet.com. And today we're giving a first look for the Apple iPod Nano the 7th generation iPod Nano. It's a $149, gives you 16 gigabytes of capacity. This is the first iPod Nano to use a kind of iPod Touch style touchscreen design. Apple introduced the touchscreens of the iPod Nano last year with a squared off clip on watch style iPod Nano. This time, they've elongated the designs, that's more of an iPhone, iPod Touch look. They've had the home button at the bottom to give it that again the iPod Touch, iPhone kind of operation. But otherwise, it's kind of what you'd expect from an iOS-ish kind of device. It's not running iOS. It's running its own unique iPod Nano software. There's a new features though, you got video playback on this now, so if you wanted to watch video on a 2.5-inch screen, you now have that ability. The other big feature that they've added on here is wireless bluetooth audio. There's been a big one that we've been asking for the Nano even argue with something like the shuffle. It's a lot of freedom there if you can break the cable of the headphones and be able to use wireless headphones or be able to use this with a wireless speaker. Another change here is the Apple is using their lightning port connection on here, the same one that they're using on the new iPod Touch and the new iPhone 5. It's a change for a lot of people in use, it's gotta break compatibility with accessories like speaker docks or in-car stereo speakers that you've got hooked up. So if you're gonna buy this, expect that you're gonna have to buy some new accessories too or just find a way to get, maybe get a bluetooth speaker or something to replace those old docking accessories you used to have. Another slight changes the Apple has upgraded their headphones to these new ear-pod designed headphones. It's a slightly different fit. I find it slightly less comfortable actually 'cause it's an old plastic design. The plastic is against your ears. You get a little bit better audio quality but not that much. I think if you really are using this as a fitness mp3 player, you probably gonna want to invest in some rugged more fitness friendly headphones than these. Another thing that's kinda disappointed is the Apple didn't include the in-line remote on these headphones which should be great if you want to change tracks without having to look at your mp3 player. They do meet you halfway though. One of the new design elements here on the Nano is that they've included a button right on the rocker switch right in between the volume up and volume down that you can use as a play/pause button or if you hold it down, you can get that voice-over information. You can even use it to navigate between different play lists without having to look at the iPod Nano. Still would have been cooler to have that on a headphone remote. All and all though, this is kind of the classic features we expect from an iPod but at a $150, it's a bit of a stretch especially when you think that something like the iPod Shuffle here is gonna be just $50. Really are kind of be into the fitness thing $50 and something you can just clip on your clothes. It's gonna be a better solution for you probably than this $150 glass-covered device. Another $50 can go up to $199. You can get Apple's 4th generation iPod Touch and you can even get a ton more features, wi-fi compatibility, air-play, e-mail, calendar a lot more bang for your buck going with your iPod Touch for $199 and that same 16 gigabyte capacity. So there you go. That's the first look at the Apple Ipod Nano, the 7th Generation.
