    Oh, come on! They have to stop doing this to us. And I thought I was happy with my *current* Nano…

    I love the pink and the blue. Thanks for posting Beverly!

    I wasn’t sure about it at first since I’m really happy with my 1 GB black nano but the more I looked at it on the apple site, the more I’m considering an upgrade 😉 Now I just have to decide between pink or green 😛

      For me, if I sell my existing Nano for a good price on eBay, I’m definitely getting the pink one 😀

    A thinner design. Five stylish colours. A brighter display. Up to 24 hours of battery life.

    Are these the main changes? I did notice 8GB emphasised, so I’ll assume that’s new, too.

    Anyway, my point is, Apple have a genius marketing team. This is a product with some very slight changes introduced (in some cases, probably not even noticable changes) and they’re able to make people want them.

      OMG 24 hours battery life???
      Mine is lucky to do about 5 or 6 hours!!!! 🙁
      That is a BIG change!!!

        They say “up to 24 hours”. It’s more marketing talk. It’ll probably be better than 5 – 6 hours, but it won’t really do 24 hours.

        Batteries tend to get worse over time, and the time that a single charge lasts depends on how you’re using the device.

        To put things in perspective, if you look at their “iPod comparison” page, they list every iPod as having a battery that lasts at least “up to 12 hours”…

      To be honest, i think it’s mostly the colours that will make people want to buy a new one.. and that’s the genius of their marketing – and so annoying! 😉

        Exactly. To truly appreciate this genius marketing, you also need to consider that they probably planned this right from the start when they brought out the original black and white iPod Nanos.

      Ya just 4gb.. but Im going to stick with the 4gb as I don’t really want to pay any more. I don’t really need the extra space anyway 😛 I’m sure they’ll have the 8gb version soon like you said!

    give the evil apple man another couple of months and he’ll come out with something even smaller and cuter….just out of spite, i’m waiting him out on this one….

      I’m thinking…

      – iPod Shuffle, now up to 2GB and with multiple playlists! In black, too!
      – Regular (video) iPod in multiple colours, and up to 100GB.

      People want to want things. All Apple needs to do is give them the slightest reason to, and then spin it so that it looks like a major feature.

        the new shuffle is miniscule! i can see it clipped to my collar now.. oh yes!

        but i’d stick with my 2nd gen ipod mini for now..
        at least till they decide to revive it with an injection of colours for its dull screen. 🙂

          yeah the shuffle is cute, wish it held more music though! I bet they’ll release it in colours soon…

    I want it too! 😀 I’d want the black one though. But I also want the 30GB ipod because I have so much music 🙁 Sigh sigh, the dilemma.

    • beverly posted on September 16, 2006 at 12:38 am

      30gb? That’s a LOT of music! 😛 4gb suits me.. I’m not huuuge on music so I don’t really have that much, I just fill up a 4gb and when I go above, I just delete the songs Idon’t like the most 😉
