5G iPod Nano Video in the flesh

Yesterday, Apple reps flew in to show the media their new line-up of iPods. Of the lot, the iPod Nano 5G took the spotlight with a number of new features, including a 0.3 megapixel video camera.

With a bigger screen (2.2-inches vs. 2-inches) and much more features, the iPod Nano 5G will continue to be the most top-selling iPod in the line.

Odd thing though is that the VGA video camera can only record videos and cannot take still photos. Apple execs say it’s because people only liked/wanted taking and sharing videos, not photos. Included is a microphone and speakers too.

The FM radio tuner was also added, despite years of avoiding such feature, since Apple found a way to monetize it — one can tag a song played on the radio and later on be able to buy it thru iTunes.

The 8GB model costs Php8,790. On a side note, the iPod Shuffle has a Special Edition made of polished stainless steel instead of the usual anodized aluminum (priced at Php5,490).

    ^ yung ipod nano ko naman is pretty much ok.. it’s a 4th gen bought it last January.. tumatagal naman sya ng 3 days with at least 5 hour use per day (pag pasok, during breaks and pag-uwi).. pero pansin ko ung ipod nano ng friend ko parang mas mahaba yung oras and mas maganda yung quality despite parehong gen naman (same earphones as well)

    the Nano only has Video Recording capability due to the fact that the module for video recording is smaller than the module for still images and they dont wanna make the nano bulk up. this is what el Stevo said during the Q&A after the Keynote.

  8. I am impressed by the sleek design and the variety of colors. Apple is growing more by the launch of new iPhones, ipods, etc. There is a camera installed at the back but the picture quality is not very satisfying. FM Radio feature is also not great. Now lets come to the main highlights, the excellent mp3 player. The sound quality is awesome. People will surely enjoy music and go crazy.
