Nano Lives Up To Its Name

Nano

Look it up in the dictionary, and you’ll find that the word “nano” is a prefix which indicates something that is extremely small.  I got my hands on the new Apple iPod Nano today and can confirm that it lives up to its name.   Stacking a few credit cards next to it would just about equal its thickness.  It feels terrific in your hand and I thought the scroll wheel was fine, though some have complained about it.

At .26 inches, it is hard to believe that I can watch a movie on this thing.  And that’s the other point that struck me:  the resolution looks fantastic!  I didn’t really think someone would want to watch a movie on something this small, but now that I’ve seen it I can certainly imagine taking that on an airplane or a visit to the driver’s license bureau and watching an episode or two of The Office.
I’ve set my savings on a new iPod Classic, but if the Nano came with about 3x more space, I would easily take it as my first choice.
