Manufacturer's Description

Only 6 mm (.26 inches) thin and 40 grams (1.41 oz) light, iPod nano packs a lot into its diminutive design. Up to 24 hours of battery life (1). 2GB, 4GB or 8GB of storage (2). A brighter colour display. A Dock connector that fits an entire ecosystem of iPod accessories. With features like these, iPod nano changes the way you experience your music and more. Click on a feature to see it on the iPod nano display, then read about it here.

Music
Finding and playing music on iPod nano is simple. Menu options let you browse by artist, composer, album, song, genre or playlist. Want to mix things up? Click Shuffle Songs. iPod nano makes your music look as good as it sounds, thanks to a 1.5-inch colour display. Album art appears alongside your song titles, so you see your music as you play it. And when you dare to wear iPod nano, that display guarantees you’ll say a lot without saying a word.

Podcasts
The iTunes Store features thousands of free podcasts — radio-type shows you subscribe to — including indie favourites and offerings from such big names as Ricky Gervais, BBC, National Geographic, Disney, The Daily Telegraph and many more. Browse and subscribe to podcasts, then sync them to your iPod nano and listen anytime, anywhere. Podcasts appear in their own menu on your iPod nano, so you can navigate them easily.

Audiobooks
The digital shelves of the iTunes Store are stocked with thousands of audiobooks — including such exclusives as the entire Harry Potter series — so you can catch up on your reading wherever iPod nano takes you. Browse audiobooks from their own menu on your iPod nano. iPod nano automatically recognises where you left off and bookmarks your place. You can even change the read speed to suit you.

Photos
iPod nano holds up to 25,000 photos (3) you can sync from your Mac or Windows PC via iTunes. Use the Click Wheel to scroll through photo thumbnails the same way you scroll through song titles. To see a photo full-screen, click the centre button. You can even view photo slideshows, complete with music. Just select Slideshow Settings and choose the time between slides, the transition effect and the music.

Extras
Calendars, contacts and the World Clock appear in the Extras menu, along with a few more handy items. Take the Screen Lock, for example. Spin the Click Wheel to choose a four-digit combination and protect your iPod nano from prying eyes. If you forget your combination, you can reset it at your next sync. Or use the built-in Stopwatch to log your best times. When it’s finally time to play, iPod nano features four fun games: Music Quiz, Solitaire, Brick and Parachute.

Settings
Customise menus, check capacity, change your language, change how your iPod nano sounds and more, all from the Settings menu. Click About to see how many songs are on your iPod nano and how much capacity you have left. Click Main Menu to select what items appear in your Main Menu. Tweak the built-in equalizer. Or set your maximum volume limit. Everything you need — from backlight timer to audiobook speed — appears in the Settings menu.

1. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and the number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See www.apple.com/uk/batteries for more information.
2. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
3. Photo capacity is based on iPod-viewable photos transferred from iTunes.
