Apple iPod nano
Apple's smallest, cheapest iPod gets a bigger screen and nifty built-in features
- Thinner than the previous nano
- Built in Bluetooth, pedometer, Lightning
- Larger multitouch display
- We'll soon find out
Apple's refresh of the iPod nano brings a larger, longer screen, a revamped iOS-esque interface, and some integrated features that should cement the nano's position as the media player of choice for fitness junkies, gadget lovers and budget-minded buyers.
Price$ 219.00 (AUD)
It's not as popular as the iPhone 5, and it's not as exciting as the iPod touch, but the new Apple iPod nano deserves its time in the sun: it's the thinnest iPod ever, and has the largest display ever used in this particular pint-sized media player.
The new iPod nano's screen is 2.5 inches in size in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. It's multi-touch, which should mean touchscreen commands like swiping and pinching work properly.
It's got a redesigned operating system that isn't quite iOS 6. Like the last nano, it runs a cut-down version that looks familiar, but doesn't have the same functionality as the full-fat version you see on the iPod touch and iPhone. It's changed to a rounded icon layout, and the etching on the home button changes from a round-cornered-square to a circle too.
It's in built-in convenience features that the iPod nano makes its biggest steps forward. It's got integrated Bluetooth for syncing the appropriate wireless headphones, or portable speaker systems and car stereos. The integrated pedometer and Nike+ support means it's a good tool for keeping track of your daily fitness — although you won't be able to wear it like a watch like the old model.
It's got the longest battery life of any nano, despite the big screen and extra features. 30 hours of life is Apple's quoted figure for music playback. The new iPod nano comes in seven colours — cyan, green, yellow, pink, purple, white, and black.
The new iPod nano will cost $219 for the 16GB model and $279 for the 32GB model.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
