nano nano

Awww, yeah! Have you seen the new iPods that Apple just announced? First, I'm totally crushing on the new iPod nano.


Here's the nitty gritty info: It's made out of aluminum, and even THINNER than the first generation. (I don't know how that's even possible!) Justin may be bringing Sexy Back, but Apple is bringing color back (like the mini). It looks similar to the Mini, actually. Battery life increased from 15 to 24 hours, gapless playback, instant search like the big iPod, quick scrolling and it comes with the new headphones. There are three models -- 2GB model in silver ($149), 4GB in silver, pink, green, blue ($199), and 8GB in black ($249).

I kind of miss the rounded edges of the older version, but they've more than made up for it with the new vibrant colors (very 80's-esque). The Mini's of yesteryear were a bit more muted (which was also cute) but these seem to really pop in a look-at-me kind of way.

Secondly, the new square iPod shuffle is SO SO tiny and compact that it may be smaller than your earphones. It's only a cubic inch in volume, weighs just half an ounce and features a stunning all-new aluminum design. And so it doesn't get lost in the blackhole purse we all carry, it has a clip-on feature so you can just attach it to your pocket or bag strap. Genius! It contains one gigabyte of flash memory, which holds up to 240 songs, and is only $79 ($20 cheaper than the old generation). It won't be available until October, but Apple is already taking orders for the unit.

Even though I'm not in the market for a new iPod right now, knowing these guys are out there just makes me happy!
