Apple unveiled its new iPod nano 7, along with the iPod touch, at its press event in San Francisco on Sept. 12. The iPod nano 7 packs in a host of new features. Here's a look at the latest iDevice's specs and other details.
The iPod nano 7 will sport a 2.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch display with 240 x 432 pixels resolution at 202 ppi.
"The 2.5-inch Multi-Touch display is nearly twice as big as the display on the previous iPod nano, so you can see more of the music, photos, and videos you love. Buttons let you quickly play, pause, change songs, or adjust the volume," states Apple's Web site.
Measurements and Weight
"At just 5.4 mm thin - and about the size of a credit card - the new iPod nano is the thinnest iPod ever made," states Apple.
The iPod nano 7 weighs 31g, making it heavier than its 21.1g predecessor. However, at 5.4mm thick, it is 38 percent thinner than the previous model. It is 3.1 inches in length and 1.56 inches wide.
The built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery will allow users up to 30 hours of audio and 3.5 hours of video playback.
The iPod nano 7 features access to music, movies, TV shows, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, photos, FM radio, built-in Fitness Walk + Run and Nike+ supports. Unlike the previous iteration, the iPod nano 7 supports video formats.
In the Box
The box will include the iPod nano 7, the new Apple EarPods, the new Lightning USB Cable, and a Quick Start guide.
Colors, Availability, and Pricing
The iPod nano 7 will come in seven colors: aluminum, black, purple, green, blue, yellow, and red. The previous model had only two variants -black and white. No 8GB variant of the nano is available this time round. The 16GB iPod nano 7 will cost $149. It will hit the shelves in October, and pre-order begins on Sept. 14.
