Apple Unveils New iPod nano
Tuesday, September 12, 2006 - 1:18 PM EST

Apple today introduced the all-new iPod nano with a new aluminum body, 24 hours of battery life and more than twice the music capacity for the same price as the previous generation. The new iPod nano features Apple's Click Wheel and an even smaller, thinner and lighter design available in silver, pink, green, blue and black.

"iPod nano is the world's most popular digital music player, and we've completely redesigned it to make it even better," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "The all-new iPod nano gives music fans more of what they love in their iPods?twice the storage capacity at the same price, an incredible 24 hour battery life and a gorgeous aluminum design in five brilliant colors."

The new 2GB iPod nano model in silver is available for $149, the new 4GB models in silver, pink, green and blue are available for $199, and the new 8GB model in black is available for $249. All iPod nano models include redesigned earbud headphones providing superior comfort, fit and sound quality, and a USB 2.0 cable.

I agree Socomraider, aluminum is definitly the way to go, I just wish that all colors were available in the 8GB version. I personally prefer the silver over the black myself.

They should have offered all colors at the 4GB level... while the low-end and high-end share silver and black..

I'm glad to see Apple brought back colors! Cool Black and white is so 1950's! Wink

I'm not going to buy one, but they look great! I bet there are a lot of college students that wish these would have come out a few weeks ago. Laughing

When new Apple products come out... I wonder what Apple employees think... there goes my pay check. We all know they probably get some killer discounts..

I'm not big on watching video on the iPod's...so I think the nano would be a good iPod for me. Not sure if I'm ready to buy yet or not...(so many toys, so little money) Smile

Definitely getting the two older kids each a shuffle though. Those new shuffles are SLICK!

There is a little part of me that really wants a Pro, I thought that might be a great way to catch a nice discount. But I probably have to start putting gel in my hair and liking techno...

There is a disclosure thing when you work there. You can't even post anything about Apple while working for them. I wouldn't even be able to post on this site. If you do post, if somehow they found out... you are instantly fired (at locations that allow it...Cali would be a 2-week notice)...

If true, that is ridiculous.

I've heard that as well, they are pretty serious about protecting company secrets and enforce on every employee at every level.

A distinction should be made between revealing company secrets and participating in discussions about currently available products.
