One needs only look at the long lines stretching out of Apple stores when new products are released to confirm this simple truth: people like new stuff. The 4th generation of the iPod Nano was released only six years ago, but with the speed at which technology is discarded, many have forgotten its existence. Newer doesn’t always mean better, though—a new product is always significantly more expensive, and there may be problems that show up a few months after you start using it. The savvy shopper will prioritize price and features rather than the factory release date. So let’s see what the iPod Nano 4 has to offer.
Anyone who decides to buy a Nano cares about size—the smaller, the better. The iPod Nano 4 is extra slim, making it perfect for keeping in the pockets of your skinny jeans or a runner’s armband. Nobody likes carrying around clunky mp3 players, but you might actually forget you’re even carrying the Nano 4 since it’s so light!
Have you ever had your iPod on shuffle and wondered what a song’s title is and who sings it, but were unable to read the names due to screen glare? The Nano 4 has a handy feature to fix that, with its spoken menus that allow you to hear song and artist names without viewing the screen.
Its long battery life is coupled with a fast recharge time that means you’ll never be without your music for long. And after all, that’s the main function of any iPod or mp3 player—music. With the Nano 4, you can listen to all your favorites without breaking the bank like you might on a newer model. Can’t beat quality and affordability!
