Right after the launching the latest Apple iMac, Chief Executive Steve Jobs unveiled a video iPod nano and other new models of the music player on Wednesday, refreshing the product line at a time when its digital media strategy is facing renewed attacks from rivals.
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. And with 4GB and 8GB models starting at just $149, little speaks volumes.
Apple will add video and games to its iPod nano, which stores songs and photos on flash memory chips instead of a hard drive, and refresh or replace the entire iPod music player product line, Jobs said.
Watch up to 5 hours of TV shows, music videos, movies, and podcasts. 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.
iPod nano sports a larger, 320-by-240-resolution display that`s 65 percent brighter than before.
Browse your music by album artwork with Cover Flow. View everything on your iPod nano in a whole new way.
In anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel, iPod nano is now 6.5 mm thin and even more beautiful. 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.
It`ll 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.
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.
Buy music, movies, TV shows, and audiobooks, or download free podcasts from the iTunes Store 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Organize and play everything on your Mac or PC. Then sync it to your iPod or iPhone and bring it along. Anywhere. Download the latest iTunes v7.4 now here
