Went to Apple store today around 1, no new iPods on display. No Nano, Touch or Classic.

Find a friendly Apple Rep and ask him if they are in stock. First response was not yet. We chatted for a moment, and then he asked if I was looking to see one or buy one. When I told him I wanted to purchase one he said "let me look in back and see if anything was dropped off"

Sure enough he comes out and says, " We have some, but only 8g models" I said then lets roll.

Walked out with a Silver 8g on the spot.

I ordered my Nano from the Apple Store around 4:15pm CST yesterday and received it today via Fedex Express. ($16 for overnight shipping not bad for today's shipping prices) I was very surprised that it shipped since I had order so late. I haven't had much time to play with all the features, but it seems to work well.

To those who have the new one and the previouse...I've herd reports of the new ones being snappier, the click week being less sticky, can you tell any difference from previouse iPods? I currently have the 2g nano, and would like to know if there is a difference.

My 2g Nano (square widescreen)'s clickwheel is awesome, I've had it for a year it's still snappy, and over time the stickiness of the clickwheel has gone, now its smooth and very easy to scroll around. Im pretty sure they made it the same. Coverflow might be better on it, but i think the nano 2G is due for an update soon.

Those colors are really intense. Yeah, I was expecting those headphones aswell, let down. Anyone have an iPhone headset to see if it works?


I got a silver/black 8gb one, engraved. Ships today, ordered yesterday morning. Says delivered by the 16th, any chance of me getting it sooner? :)

JohnnyQuest
Sep 11, 2008, 12:28 PM
So jealous! I went to my local Circuit City and Best Buy today. Circuit City didn't have anything other than shuffles, and they were last gen's muted colors. Best Buy said they were so supposed to get a shipment today, so most likely, they'll have some tomorrow. I really want the silver/black 8GB one!

Side note- anyone with purple? If so is it more like blue? From iLounge's pics it looks rather blue.

Foxer
Sep 11, 2008, 01:02 PM
I picked up an 8GB Orange at the Apple Store this morning. Already having buyer's remorse - I think I should have held out a couple days and gotten the 16GB.

The colors are very vibrant in person. The yellow is more gold than I expected. The purple is certainly purple. Black and silver look good, but those colors match my classics.

Nanos are at most apple stores but only the 8GB

After seeing them in person, the black, gunmetal, blue and orange looks the best to me

the purple does not look blue'ish at all like it does in the iLounge pics

I'm still deciding between black, blue and gunmetal :mad:

16GB should be in by this weekend or the following days according one of the employees

Sep 11, 2008, 04:35 PM
No interest whatsoever. I have a Black 2G 8GB Nano that still looks brand new and works great, and a 3G iPhone. I have no use for a video Nano nor do I see the point of watching anything on something that small. They do look better than the 3G fatty model, though. But if anything I might pick up a shuffle and a pair of monster freeplay headphones at some point. Cut the cord.

Sep 11, 2008, 04:40 PM
I wish I could find a reason to buy a new iPod nano, but with an iPhone 3G 16GB and second and third generation 8GB nanos, I just can't.
Also, for the first ever time, the silver iPod would be the one I would buy. If only Apple made the 120GB classic in silver, but with a black wheel, I would definitely buy one.


Uhh.. What? 8GB is cheaper in the United States....

He/she meant that the 8GB nano costs more in Germany than the 16GB version does in America.

Picked up a silver 8GB at the local apple store today. I went in intending to get an orange one, but after seeing the one they had on display I decided against it. The color just didn't look right, maybe it was the lights. I'm quite happy with the silver though, love the black clickwheel!

For those of us who want to use it in bed but don't like coverflow, you can't turn it off like on the Touch. However, you have to tilt it much further to activate coverflow, so it can easily be used while lying on your side.

Also, if you've seen these on display at the apple store, did they have the silver and black ones out too? My local store was only displaying the bright colors for some reason, even though they had plenty of silver and black ones in stock.

the iphone 3G's headphone works with the new nano!! one click to pause, double click to skip next. I got a purple one free oh yeah i love my professor!!
also i was under the idea that the nano would come with a volume control headphone, but no... and i checked on apple's website, they are selling them at the same price as a standard headset.

Sep 11, 2008, 10:28 PM
i didn't buy one but I did stop by and look at them in person (partly for the lack of real pictures on the net). My thoughts: I like them but the screen is still to small for my tastes (ie watching video, i'm not saying people watch videos on these things but it is a feature, that I think is really unusable). The colors: the yellow looked best on the net pictures but the worst in person. I liked the the red looked good, so did the orange and green, but the purple, black and silver looked the best. The video looked a little odd against the purple background. I thought the silver was gonna be the best but i think i give it to the black because the black wasn't absolutely black more or a dark grey.

Is the click wheel on anybody's making little noises when they move over the buttons? Sounds kinda like little clicks whenever I rolls over the FF or RW buttons. Almost like the wheel is uneven.

I went to check them out in the store, Green, Purple, Pink and Red are very bright! The blue is a nice deep blue, looks really great. The black isn't really black, its more of a really dark gray. The orange and yellow seem more saturated than the other colors, but I'm not sure if it was just because of the lighting in the store. I really like the silver one, seems a bit more professional and will probably match my Macbook Pro. So I'm not really sure what color I want. I really like orange and blue, but I'm leaning towards the silver because I really like the black click wheel.

I just went to the Apple store and checked them out and man are they beautiful. I was so tempted to get one but I have a 80GB iPod Classic and a 16GB iPhone so there really isn't a need. I do have to say that the purple, blue, silver, and green looked the best. Also I can't believe how thin the iPod touch is, it's incredible. I took some pics with my iPhone's camera.

Phipp, those are some nice pics. Do you keep your ipods/iphone in a case or use a skin?

Is the new nano's screen and case pretty scratch resistant?
I keep my iphone in an Incase Slider Case (http://goincase.com/products/detail/slider-case-cl59055). I never had my old nano in a case..it's pretty beat up you just can't tell in the picture.

The new nanos seem like they'll hold up better than other ipods do.. it still looks pretty good right now

I just went to the Apple store and checked them out and man are they beautiful. I was so tempted to get one but I have a 80GB iPod Classic and a 16GB iPhone so there really isn't a need. I do have to say that the purple, blue, silver, and green looked the best. Also I can't believe how thin the iPod touch is, it's incredible. I took some pics with my iPhone's camera.

Just got my iPod! silver/black 8gb. It's awesome, shake to shuffle is not so easy to use though. I also noticed the games rotate with the screen to fit landscape mode, and so does the video so you can hold the ipod with either hand, that's a nice feature. To SchneiderMan: My screen doesn't seem yellow, maybe these nanos got the iPhone 3G "warm & fussy" screen treatment.

Picked this up as a replacement for g/f who does a lot of jogging so was looking for small and light player. No issues at all with screen colouring and very impressed with the little chap (and the nano).

Pity I cannot say the same for apple tv picked up at same time (for me - who does a lot of watching tv).

Blasphemy! The 3rd gen (aka "the one with no click wheel") ipod was an abomination! ;)

Actually, after looking at the pics in this thread, I'm struck by how similar they are to the first gen nanos. Really very little difference is dimensions between the two, although they did manage to use a much greater portion of the face for the screen this time around.

Okay guys here is a RED one! Just picked it up today after work! :D I'm so happy. I just love it. Even though it's so similar in form factor to the 2nd gen nano, once you see and hold it in person, you can really notice the thinness which is really remarkable. It also feels lighter in the hand. The screen is super high res and gorgeous too. It makes the 2nd gen screen look really out-dated.

My camera is only a point & shoot, so it's kinda hard to pick up the soft metallic sheen the red has, but I did my best. Hope ya like it :)

I prefer the new style.

Nothing against the 3rd Gen Nano, but when at the gym I tend to keep the nano in the waistband of my shorts. The 3rd gen due to its smaller size had a habit of sliding under the band and reappearing beneath my butt. 2nd Gen never did that.

Nothing has less class than being in the gym/on the treadmill stopping, shoving your hand down the back of your shorts, rummaging around and fishing a Nano out your butt. Granted some of the music was ***** but....

I am really hoping there will be no such problems with the new Nano. Given its design is similar to the 2nd gen it should stay at the waistband and I should no longer need to rescue my nano from the depths of my shorts. In doing so I will also stop getting withering looks from some of the ladies in the gym (and some interested looks from a few of the guys)

Nah don't find them comfortable. However I would have put up with it had I known my 3rd Gen was going to graviate to my butt.

Fortunately I've only had the 3rd Gen Nano for a couple of months. I plan to get a new 16Gb Nano for the design and the extra space.

I will then disinfect the old 3rd Gen and give it to my kid sister.

hi,

has anyone used their ipod nano for audiobooks and can give a short review?

how fast and convenient can you fast forward through an audiobook? does it remember exactly where i left off?

the older ipods are crap. mine doesn't remember where i left off. it's most of the time off by 10 min. sometimes it remembers nothing. fast forwarding is virtually useless since there is a 2 sec delay between a click and the ipod reacting. rewinding in audiobooks doesn't work at all. it either jumps back 2 hrs or its painfully slow and repeats the same sentence ten times before rewinding a bit further.

if the nano still has this problems i'm not going to buy one. although they look fantastic.

Just bought a 8gb purple nano last night in Hong Kong. Walked around with it today in sweltering weather in my pocket. May have gotten sweat on it, but it seems like a little bit of the color has bled onto the click wheel and one or two tiny spots on it are now a slightly lighter color. Anyone else notice the same?

I had a light blue Ipod mini before and never had any such thing (although color did start to fade after a few years). Actually will probably continue to use the Ipod mini for jogging if I can get the replacement battery to start recharging well because this new nano is so small and seemingly fragile. Ipod mini was built like a tank.

They're on sale in Europe as well but only from resellers. Apple ramped a bunch of them for production but MS dropped the 16GB Zune so Apple had to re-think it's line up. The 4GB ones are limited to certain markets, AU being one of those markets.

If we only had wifi syncing on the nano... that's the only thing I envy from zunes.

I don't even care so much about syncing, I just think it'd be cool to be able to stream from an iPod to an Airport Express. You could walk around the house with your iPod, control of your music at your fingertips. If your friends had A.P.E., you could go to their house and just stream music to their stereo wirelessly. At least I think that'd be pretty neat :)

I don't think it looks too bad, it certainly looks like every other engraved iPod I've seen. Whatever it is that you've had engraved is what irks me, I like the "Yo Momma uses a Walkman" bit but the long line of mixed caps and lower case characters across the top is what makes it look strange in my opinion.

If it was just "Yo Momma uses a Walkman" I think it'd look awesome.

I'm not liking the the fact that sometimes its in my pocket and i just cant adjust the volume cause it's in coverflow mode i have to take it out, rotate, etc. I also got this error yesterday "can't play selected game, cause may be full ipod" I did a reset and was able to play again.

I think that's because the song isn't in the iTunes store, so there are no recommendations for it. Genius should analyze the tempo or genre in these cases.

wish i could adjust 'shake to shuffle' sensitivity rather than just turn it on or off. I'm most likely always going to have it turned off because when it is on it is too sensitive when I'm briskly walking with the nano in my pocket.
colors are nice and vibrant
can't find decent apps/games for it (there is no easy way to check in iTunes for nano apps anyhow)
battery life doesn't seem impressive so far, but good enough

Ok guys, I'm sorry to sound similar to those who thought the white iPhone was girly at first, but I'm wondering if I should get a purple one being a guy. The pictures make them look like a dark blue and navy blue is my favorite color, so I am really tempted to order one. To those that have seen them in person, do the purple ones look girly??? If they do, I'll order the red or silver.

I'd really love to find out peoples' opinions comparing those three. (red, silver, or purple)

This is without a doubt the most annoying feature of the new ipods. it also drains the batter faster. Coverflow is the dumbest way to browse music but I doubt they will EVER give the user an option to disable it.

I'm also not a fan of the new "Now Playing" screen -- specifically the fact that it doesn't have the "X of Y" track number information anywhere obvious. You need to click the middle button once to get that info on the screen.

Out of all the iterations of Cover Flow, I actually find myself using the 4G Nano's from time to time.
It's still mostly a gimmick, but the response is so quick, and the fact that I can do it one handed, unlike the iPhone, makes it useable, and even a little enjoyable for me.

My Nano feels pretty solid. Unless you put it in a pocket with some keys or something, it shouldn't get scratched. And even then it might not. The screen is glass, which is more scratch-resistant than plastic...

I got the blue ipod nano 16GB yesterday at the Apple store. Still haven't opened it yet. I wanted the orange but after looking at the orange, decided it reminded me too much of a burnt orange "Honda Element" color.

So I decided between the indigo (purple) and blue. Purple seems kind of gay to me so I went with the safe blue choice.

So I got home and am having second thoughts about the color. I've have a 1G Green Ipod Mini, than went to a light blue 2G ipod min. I than brought a 2G ipod nano green, and now I'm back to a 4G ipod nano blue.

Maybe I should get away from the blue/green color scheme?

What do you think? 16 GB is kinda of overkill for my normal usage. I also have a 16GB iphone 3g also.

Why do I make impulse Apple product buys?

There's nothing wrong with having a theme in your iPod collection. Some people have several silver, black, blue etc because it's their favourite colour. No point in buying a colour that you don't like just for the sake of variety.

What's your normal usage? Are you going to be carrying around both the iPhone and iPod around at the same time?

Yeah, I mainly use the ipod nano for working out 3 times a week. So it gets about 3 hours of use per week. I seriously do not even think I even need more than 4GB. 16GB is overkill but I always buy the biggest GB package. I took another look at the purple again but it's too much color for me. Purple looks so much better when apple advertises it but does not appeal to me when I see it in person. Same thing with orange. The Apple guys tell me purple/orange have been selling very well.

I use the iphone mainly for the web/youtube/watching movies on the plane since I fly out a lot. Seriously I hardly use the iphone as a "phone" anymore. My Nokia E71 is my main phone device these days.

For what's it worth. I carry 2 phones with me everyday(Nokia E71 with ATT/Blackberry Curve/UMA with Tmobile. UMA is great when I'm overseas because I get free international UMA calls back home to the US). When I travel, I take the iPhone 3g with me. I mainly use it as my mini-laptop wifi device while on business. The iPhone 3g is my fun phone. I only use my iPod Nano for exercise.

I still haven't found the "perfect" all in one device.

Now I'm wondering if all the owners of purple ones will wonder if their friends think they're gay... or if maybe we should think the owners of BLUE nanos are ... but they are trying to hide the fact they wanted to buy a purple one.

Perhaps it's the whole rainbow flag of colours to choose from (Zune owners probably think all nano owners are gay!)

Well I took the plunge.

I ordered a 16gb Silver from the Apple Store online (UK) a week ago and it arrived yesterday. Very sleek, very cool looking.

Took ages to put 9gbs of music on it. Went to the gym, 2 hours later came back and it was still loading.

I never realised how long it takes. That is normal isn't it ?

Oh and dumbass here just got into work and found an email from my friend. I mentioned to her I wanted a new nano. She's only gone and picked one up for me whilst she's on business in Canada. She picked up a Red 16gb.

Yes I'll have to pay for two but the canadian one will be cheaper thanks to the sterling/CAD RoE and now I get to check the whole "Are UK ipods sound capped" plus I'll keep the one I prefer (sound/colour) and give the secondary one as a gift !

Just picked up a 16Gb Nano at the new apple store at Victoria Square Belfast. They had all the colours in stock but I could not decide between red and black so I tossed a coin. Black won, sort of glad it did. It looks so sleek and cool :) However I felt a tad of guilt not supporting 'product red' so I give a few quid to a charity collector in victoria square.

Only been using the new nano for a few hours but you can can see why ppl love them. Its to replace a Creative Zen and the differance in the screen res and click wheel are the main draws for me. Plus it syncs to my fav music store/app....itunes :)

I don't think that's normal, it took less than 20 mins for over 9gb to load onto my new nano.

I wanted the orange but after looking at the orange, decided it reminded me too much of a burnt orange "Honda Element" color.

I though that exact same thing. LOL!!! That color car is right up there with the Infiniti FX45 in BROWN. UGLY!!! :D
