    I am probably going to get ripped to shreds for this simple question...

    What does nano mean? I have no clue what the difference is between an iPod classic and a nano. And now all this iPhone nano talk has got me curious.:rolleyes:

    You do know what kind of company Apple is though right? :eek: :D

    Check out Apple.com for its product range then you should be able to fill in the blanks about an iPhone nano.
    :rolleyes:

    Right now you are using the internet on what is called a computer. ;)

    Nano, in the sense of units of measurement, is very small. In the metric system, the "nano" prefix means "one-billionth." You may have heard of certain computing tasks taking place in terms of nanoseconds-- these are very short bits of time indeed.

    Nano in the Apple realm refers to a product that does much the same as another Apple product, but is much smaller in size. The current iPod nano does almost everything the iPod classic does, including video, but is considerably smaller and lighter.

    The rumored iPhone nano would, thus, share much of the full-size iPhone's functionality-- albeit with a smaller size, smaller screen (9 apps on the home screen, perhaps, instead of the iPhone's 16) and smaller data storage capacity.

    You can go to the apple.com website to compare the iPod classic and iPod nano, and extrapolate the possibility of an iPhone nano from there.


    I figured you could use a brief respite from the "shredding". :D

    I can not believe how lazy you seem to be.
    1) Goto the following Apple.com page
    http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipod/family/ipod_nano?mco=MTE2OTU
    2) In the lower right hand select the 'Compare' button to see a comparison of all the iPods.

    Of course the lazy-pod is not listed

    that gives him a comparison of specs i think he was looking for the definition of the word NANO in apple terms which dXTC answered for him. that page would be no help to what he is looking for.
