Apple announces the iPod nano

Apple has just announced the new iPod nano, “Take everything you love about iPod and shrink it. Now shrink it again.”

The iPod nano sports a sleek white or black (!) exterior that mimics the much-loved regular iPod, comes with your choice of 2GB or 4GB of flash memory, and is priced at $199 and $249, respectively. At 1.5 ounces, it is very light and measures only 3.5 x 1.6 x 0.27 inches. That is small, people. The 1.5 inch color screen enables the iPod nano with all of the now standard photo viewing and album art capabilities previously known in the iPod photo.

May I be the first to say, “wow.” This looks fantastic, it seems to combines all of the elements that I like so much about the mini and improves upon them by making it smaller, better looking, and endowing it with a color display. The price is reasonable, as is the storage capacity. I dig the name, too.
