Product Description

It's the small iPod with one very big idea: Video. Now the world's most popular music player lets you enjoy TV shows, movies, video podcasts, and more. The larger, brighter display means amazing picture quality. In five eye-catching colors, iPod nano is stunning all around.

An anodized aluminum top and polished stainless steel back. Five eye-catching colors. A larger, brighter display with the most pixels per inch of any Apple display, ever. iPod nano stirs up visual effects from the outside in.

And it'll wow you for hours. Play up to 5 hours of video or up to 24 hours of audio on a single charge. All that staying power and a wafer-thin, 6.5-mm profile makes iPod nano one small big attraction.

Cover Flow

Use the Click Wheel to browse music by album cover, then select an album to flip it over and see the track list.

Buy movies from the iTunes Store and you can sync them to your iPod nano to watch anywhere, anytime. Up to 5 hours of video playback means you can watch two movies back to back. And for your viewing pleasure, the 320-by-240-pixel display--with a whopping 204 pixels per inch--is 65 percent brighter than before.

TV Shows
There's always something good on iPod nano. Browse thousands of episodes of your favorite TV shows on the iTunes Store, buy them for just $1.99 each, then sync them to your iPod nano. Watch last night's episodes this morning, or buy a whole TV series and play a pocket-size marathon.

The iTunes Store features thousands of free video and audio podcasts, including indie favorites and offerings from such big names as ABC News, Comedy Central, ESPN, PBS, NPR, and many more. Browse and subscribe to podcasts, then sync them to your iPod nano. You can even play video podcasts on TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.

The digital shelves of the iTunes Store are stocked with thousands of audiobooks--including exclusives like the entire Harry Potter series--so you can catch up on your reading wherever iPod nano takes you. iPod nano even recognizes where you left off reading and bookmarks your place.

Put hours of fun at your fingertips. iPod nano comes with three games--Vortex, iQuiz, and Klondike--and you can download more from the iTunes Store for $4.99 each. All iPod games are designed specifically for the iPod interface. And all of them look great on the 2-inch color display.

iPod nano holds up to 7,000 photos you can sync from your Mac or PC via iTunes. Use the Click Wheel to scroll through photo thumbnails. To see a photo full screen, click the center button. You can even view your photo slideshows--complete with music and transitions--on a TV using an optional Apple component or composite AV cable.

Calendars, contacts, and a screen lock appear in the Extras menu, along with a few more handy items. Take the world clock, for example. Spin the Click Wheel to choose different clocks for cities all over the world. For workouts, use the built-in stopwatch to log your best times.

Customer Reviews:

  • IPOD 3rd generation green
    I love my new ipod! I love the color and the size. The 8gb capacity is ideal for me and holds a lot more then I had imagined. I'm not very technological and I found it very user friendly. I am very pleased with my purchase....more info
  • Broke in a few months...
    I loved my ipod nano since I got it, then one day I downloaded abot 300 songs on it, It crashed, froze, turned on and off excesively and then finally shut down, I have not been able to fix it since, So If your going to buy this ipod, just know not to download more than five songs at a time...more info
  • Zero people might find this helpful
    but this was my first iPod. The last time I had a portable music player, it was a walkman, with tapes, nothing so versatile and useful as this solid state beast. Every single aspect of this device is rugged and durable. I've dropped it numerous times, and it's always fine. I thought I would have a problem with the headphone jack shorting out like the old walkman ports used to, but the jack has been rock solid.

    As far as I am concerned, for people with minimalist music listening needs, this thing is perfectly engineered and practically qualifies as a spiritual protection device. This iPod has helped me to concentrate and to control my aural enviroment so many times in the past year that I consider it one of my prized posessions and one of the best "inner peace" purchases I have ever made. I would immediately replace it Next Day Air if I lost it, as it has almost certainly blocked out so many mundane conversations and distractions that I am probably twice as productive having owning it.

    I do recommend replacing the stock "trendy" (are they really anymore?) junk iPod headphones with a pair of Etymotic ER6 (flat) or ER6i (bass boosted) canal phones. The sound quality has to be at least 33% improved from these alone....more info
  • Not as described
    Even though the item was clearly listed as new on Amazon and the actual order confirmation, it arrived as a questionably refurbished model. I say questionably because it was decidedly not refurbished by Apple, but instead by god only knows who. I found this particularly disturbing since Target was the seller in question and not Uncle Wiggly's Electronic's Shanty or some other dubious retailer. Amazon categorically needs to monitor it's listings for accuracy as I've read several reviews for varying items where consumers have similarly received refurbished items despite having ordered them as new.

    Suffice to say the item is being returned for being not as described and until Amazon begins to police these listings more thoroughly. I'm forced to take my business elsewhere. ...more info
  • The Best
    Even after the 4th gens and 5th gens, I still believe this one is the best. I've never had any problems with it, it scrolls while in my armband (the 4th gen I had didn't - had to take it out everytime), carries a large battery life, and has ample space for songs. I use it for running, working out, driving around, whatever. And at this price it was too hard to resist....more info
  • Great
    This is a great ipod. It's small and pretty. It also displays pictures and video....more info
  • es bueno pero.....
    Tengo el Ipod desde hace unos 6 meses, si bien es cierto es bueno ya cuando se ha subido la m®≤sica, tiene un detalle que es lo molesto, anteriormente hab®™a adquirido dispositivos mp3, mp4 y son bastante simples de utilizar, sin embargo el ipod es muy complicado, no se puede compartir archivos y es necesario tener el Itunes el cual no es tan intuitivo ni f®Ęcil de utilizar como las usb normales, por lo que no recomiendo este producto....more info
  • 8GB 3rd generation Nano..sweet !!
    I visited an Apple store to check out the newest I pods as I wanted a smaller one for the gym and working out. The fourth generation I pods are elongated and thin, but not as cute to me as the older 3rd. generation players. I had my heart set on a pretty blue one( 3rd. generation ), but the store said "no longer available...gone !" I learned also that the third generation I pods are compatible with all my previous accessories (speakers, cables, etc.)but the fourth generation are not. Amazon to the rescue ! I bought an 8GB blue one and I love it ! My only concern is that the cable is a little hard to insert in the base and seems to be more delicate than on my older model. Other than that, it's a gem !...more info
  • Glad they went back to the original design
    I'm reviewing this only in terms of comparison to the other generations of iPod nanos. If you're buying an iPod, you probably already know what you're in for in terms of UI, design quality, etc. My complaint is in the switch from the long body to the short stubby version. I'm a guy and I have guy hands and this form factor is difficult to use compared to the old and new generations. I can't hold it in one hand and use my thumb to control it, which is very important to me and I had become used to it with other Nanos.

    So if you want the smallest Nano possible, I suppose this is the one. Otherwise, I suggest buying the 4th generation version where they wisely reverted to the design that everyone knows and loves....more info
    This is the worst service i have received from this company ever. The screen to the ipod doesn't work. There is a sticker on the back the is impossible to get off. And the buttons and everything is stikey, broken, or just a peace of crap. When looked at this produced on your website it said Apple ipod nano 8gb black IN GOOD CONDITION. Notice the capped words. If this is what you call good condition, go get your eyes checked out. no joke. Also the man we bought this from e-mailed me back and said he knew that it was not in good order and could not be returned. Well lets be clear about this i want my money back. Have a nice day.

  • Awesome
    I have had this iPod for over a year now and it still stands as one of the most useful items I have ever bought. Listening to audio books while doing menial tasks helps distract me. Who really has allot of time to just sit around and read anymore? In this fast paced world the iPod is perfect for adding a soundtrack to your life. ...more info

    Bought for granddaughter for Christmas. Says she loves the Nano but the batteries run down quickly....more info
  • Tiny Little IN Pod
    by now this is the latest addition of Apple IPOD to my collection. to be honest, as I already have a 160GB Classic and a 2GB (Nano 2nd Gen), i didn't really need it, but it being a gift, i didn't really mind. i wanted one that I could hook up with my Car stereo, and my Hon got this one from somewhere. it is a decent size, and not too expensive, contra my Classic, apart from the sentimental value, do land in the high cost end.
    right now I am carrying the ipod in my wallet, that goes in my back pocket, and so far no ill effects have been observed.

    compared to my previous ipods, the 2nd Gen Nano, it has the plus of Video capability and color and the size is more suitable for the pocket. as far as the CLassic is concerned, it is pretty much the exact same thing, except for the screen size and the storage capasity.

    the only drawback with the Ipods that i, along with the entire population of Ipod owners have observed is the cosmetique. the body is too acceptable to smudges and prints, and that is whether or not you inclose it in a case. i have my classic in silicon wrapper from day one, an last week i transfered it to a Belkin Hardcase, and the back side was all smudged and dirty.

    but for my condition, the option was a 32gb touch @ $350 or this 8gb Nano @ $0.00, so how difficult do you think the decision or choice was??? at least I can hook it up to my car stereo and just leave it in there permanently, that is one thing I under no circumstances could do with the Classic or Touch. and 8 gb should be enough for some 2000 songs or so, which if played back in sequence shoul be enough to cover a trip cross country diagonal....more info
  • Better than I thought
    This is my first mp3 player. I wanted one to use with a speaker like a miniature stereo system in a bedroom. My husband bought me a very good speaker, and we were very pleasantly surprised at the full sound the iPod and speaker put out. I didn't think I would ever take the iPod with me and listen to it with earphones, but I have. I have really enjoyed it. The click wheel is easy to use and the size is more adequate than I thought it would be. I'm very pleased with it....more info
  • great service

  • iPod Nano = iFun
    The iPod nano is the best device ever made in human history. It is so small yet provides so much entertainment. You can watch movies, TV shows, enjoy your favorite tunes, or even reminisce while looking at photos of your cat that died a couple of years ago from leukemia (which, by the way, is mostly preventable with a vaccine). You could be in the squalor of a jail in Istanbul, but if you have your iPod you'd be perfectly content. So, in summary, if you are going out of the country and there is even a slight chance that you might be locked up while abroad, you should be sure to take an iPod nano with you. It could save your sanity, if not your life....more info
  • Great Gift
    Was just what my grandson needed to help him through some arduous running exercises before he left for basic training....more info
  • Christmas gift
    It was a hit for my niece whom I bought it for for Christmas. She'd had other ipods but absolutely adored this one with it's video capability......more info
  • Works well but check for memory capacity.
    It's only 8 gigabites total, so when you use the same computer for different i-pods, keep in mind what & what cannot transfer over....more info
  • Just great!
    I love iPods, this item arrived on time, and is working perfectly, but don't leave it fall down, is very delicate!...more info
  • Easy exchange of defective item
    Received item promptly. A week later, I discovered it was defective. This vendor quickly and effortlessly exchanged the item. I would recommend this vendor to others....more info
  • Great Gift
    I bought one for my granddaughter and loved it, so I purchased one for myself. My husband loved mine so I bought one for him. He is very happy....more info
  • It's an Ipod
    Like most Apple products, it works and is easy to use. I got it for my kids and of course they knew how it works without any instruction (even without any video game or cell phone experience).
    The 3rd generation has locked up from time to time, some of the firmware updates have helped, and you just need to know the complete reset procedure.
    I am not completely happy with Itunes. It has been difficult to organize my ripped files and if you delete some folders there is no way to get them back....more info
  • Made my daughters Christmas
