I think taphil is holding out on us. I think either:

a) He's happily playing with his new toy

b) He hates it and doesn't want to tell us that

c) He's already been mugged, and is no lying in a ditch, nano-less.

I hope it's not C. Well, unless the mugger is also a head-fier and can tell us more about the nano.

I ordered a white 4gigger within five minutes of the Apple store featuring the thing and it still hasn't shipped -- waiting on the 12th. Bah!

I may go hunting for one over the weekend at a brick and mortar store! How totally analog!

Don't give up guys! I was told the 12th and just learned it was shipping when I called a few minutes ago.

Haha. Or (D) Phil had to go back to work after racing to the mall, then home to take the nano out of the box and get pics, and then race off to work.

So here are some more pics:


Like I said in another post, Apple chose the nano name before Creative used the Zen Nano Plus name, and thus Apple didn't want to make new boxes for new promotional bags for the Apple Store that are so think it only fits the nano and maybe a dock.



Some people like box shots


Boot up time is <10 seconds.


Return of the fingerprint magnet. The Apple Store had black and white nanos on display, only for a few hours since it arrived, and already the demo units (on the back counter, you have to ask to see it, they don't have it tethered like everything else yet) had scratches and scuffs. On the black one, it looked like somewhat dropped it or ran it face down over a table.


iPod photo 30GB (the thin photo version), iPod mini, iPod nano. It's thinner than the headphone jack for my Senn MX400 earbuds and probably most other earbuds with a generic 90 degree L jack. Double the thicknes as some want to incrase the battery life I think is too thick, but a few millimeters thicker would have been nice so the unit can sit flat on it's back or front without leaning on the headphone plug.

To answer some questions:

- Transfer speed is fast enough, or in other words about the speed of the iPod mini. It's fast enough for me not to care to test the speed.

- I put the nano in the dock for the 3rd gen iPod and the line-out isn't adjustable. It's constant like other iPods. Maybe you have to buy the special nano dock? I have no need for it.

- I still don't like the headphone jack on the bottom. I put the nano upside down in my pocket like you're supposed to (design-wise it makes sense), but when I try to take it out of my pockets (I wear jeans, not baggy) I end up touching the wheel with my palm and the volume jumps all over the place. So I don't think it's practical for people like me who will never ever in a million years wear any device around my biceps, neck, or belt. With the jack on the top, my palm touches the top half of the iPod and so I don't accidentally change the volume.

- The combination feature is stupid. What's the point? It's not button lock. You can only play/pause when engaged. It's still in effect if you reset the nano or when you put it into a dock (the one I have), contrary to what iPodlounge said.

- The touch wheel is a tad too sensitive, maybe because it's so small.

- Sound quality - I used to care, but now not so much because I plan on using my nano with just Senn earbuds. Nevertheless, it sounds good and loud with Senn HD600 headphones, and on the Senn earbuds as well. I can't tell much of a difference between it and my other iPods.

It looks like it will be (was) lol easy for taphil to compare the nano with it's bigger siblings sonics. also looks like they paired the wolfson chip with a bigger output capacitor, maybe better bass response ?? Definatly no sigmatel chips, got the good old wolfson and portal player PP5021 ?

Gotta love those Japanese, Korean sites that tear stuff apart as soon as they get their little mits on it.

It's only 0.5mm wider than 4.5 mint chocolates, and has about the same thickness
