Apple has introduced the new fourth generation iPod nano, the thinnest iPod ever featuring a sleek new design with a curved aluminum and glass enclosure, in eight vibrant colours.
The new iPod nano incorporates Apple's breakthrough Genius technology which automatically creates playlists from songs in your music library that go well together, with just one click.
The new iPod nano also features a refined user interface, a high resolution portrait display and a built-in accelerometer which automatically switches to Cover Flow when rotated and automatically goes into ShuffleT mode when lightly shaken.
The new iPod nano gives users up to 24 hours of music playback or four hours of video playback and will be available in an 8GB model and a 16GB model. Both models come in silver, purple, blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, and black.
"The iPod nano is the world's most popular music player and we've made it even better for this holiday season," says Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We think users are going to love the amazing new design, the automatic Genius playlist creation, as well as automatically going into Cover Flow with just a turn of the wrist."
The new iPod nano-the thinnest iPod ever-features an elegant new design that beautifully blends a brilliant two-inch display with a gorgeous curved aluminum and glass enclosure. The new contoured design fits even more comfortably in your hand.
iPod nano works seamlessly with iTunes so you can import, manage and then easily auto-sync your favorite content. With up to 24 hours of music playback or four hours of video playback on a single charge, the new iPod nano is the ultra-portable way to enjoy your favorite music, TV shows, movies and games on the go. The 16Gb model holds up to 4 000 songs, 14 000 photos and 16 hours of video, and the 8Gb model holds up to 2 000 songs, 7 000 photos and eight hours of video.
The new iPod nano works with the new iTunes 8 Genius feature, allowing customers to automatically create playlists while on-the-go with their iPod nano. Users can preview the playlist Genius creates, refresh the list to choose different songs and save Genius playlists to enjoy again later.
The iPod is the world's most popular family of digital music players with over 160-million sold.
