new ipod nanoLast month, the new iPod nano 4G was released into the market by Apple Inc. and they were praised and chosen by many gadget lovers, than the other iPods. This is because it has almost double the things that the previous generation iPod had.

Design and features of the iPod Nano 4G
As you would see, it’s the thinnest iPod ever by Apple and so the thinnest in the world. Its just 6.2mm thick and the whole body on the front and back, including the screen, is curved. As we expect, there are only the improvements that we can see in any apple product, this iPod also has nothing deducted from the previous version, except the size.

The body is made of Aluminum and is having the click wheel in the center to change the songs and volume control. It features 24 hours of battery life and break-free playback for long hours.
The screen is 2 inch wide and has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, and it has an accelerometer that allows to switch the screen to watch videos.

This thinner and lighter iPod is available in various colors like Black, purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, violet.

Other features
One of the best features added in this time, is “Shake to Shuffle”, which just needs you to Shake a bit and the song changes randomly. iTunes comes with a new Genius feature which is there in the iPod nano. There is a 30-pin iPod dock connector which helps in connecting it with any of the other portable devices like stereo speakers, car audio devices etc.

  10. @chief,

    The iPod 4G plays only mp4 format movies. If you have any other format movies, just convert them to mp4 with the help of any tool and then while syncing the ipod with itunes, drag the mp4 video files into the iPod Movies folder and you can play the movies.

    Try it, and let me know if you got it. If still could not understand i can show it with a tutorial.

  11. This article is showing pictures for the second generation iPod nano instead of the fourth generation.
