Default The iPod Nano's Changing Form

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.cultofmac.com/the-evolution-of-the-ipod-nano-infographic/57582?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+cultofmac/bFow+(Cult+of+Mac)&utm_content=Google+Reader' target='_blank'>http://www.cultofmac.com/the-evolut...t=Google+Reader</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Perhaps more than any other device in Apple's electronics arsenal, the iPod nano has changed dramatically over the years. Birthed as the iPod Mini, the first generation nano rounded off and slightly shrank the design, while adding a color screen."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1283431500.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>This was one change that I really didn't get from yesterday's event. But then again, I think that has been the problem with the Nano all along, just where does it fit in the iPod mix. As you can see from all the various changes, perhaps Apple has been wondering this same thing as it has taken on many forms over the years. What are your thoughts? Do you think the Nano change is good? Bad? Too close to the Shuffle?&nbsp;</p>

Looks like a good change to me. Love the little touch screen!

I think it's gimmicky and lame. Add a touchscreen, but reduce the screen size, take away video playback (and video recording), take away the accelerometer, keep storage at the same place it's been since 2008, and keep the same price points. What??? I mean don't get me wrong, I love the touchscreen on my iPhone, but my old nano is much easier to call up a song on, esp. 1-handed. But the big crime I think is removing the video playback.

But that's neither here nor there- I stopped buying iPods when I got my first iPhone. They're interesting and cool looking, but no longer necessary for me.
