CNET News Video: The new Apple Nano with multi-touch

3:05 /

Apple CEO Steve Jobs shows off the latest redesign of the iPod Nano at its September 2010 music event Wednesday in San Francisco. The new Nano features a touch screen, eliminating the buttons from the previous version.

The new iPod Nano has multi touch. It's very tiny. So you can hold it in your---- just in your hand like this. It's amazing and super easy to use and it's so small. We're able to put a clip on it, too. So it's instantly wearable. So, multi touch user interface. It's 46% smaller and 42% lighter, in other words, it's almost half the small and almost half as light as its predecessor. That doesn't happen too often. It's got clips and no more armed bands when you wanna use it for athletics. It's got volume buttons, hard volume buttons, voice over, FM radio, Nike plus, pedometer, all sorts of stuff like that, and it works in 29 different languages. So we're really excited about this, it's got 24-hour audio playback. Take a look at with some of the screens. So you've got a lot of different screens, you've got the home screen, and as you flip through you've got radio and photos and podcasts and settings, and then all different ways to access your musics, songs, albums, composers, genres. And this is what it's like when you scroll through it. You can get these nice big letters to find out, you know, where you are. That's what albums look like. It's great to see the album art. Here's some more: the first two radio up there, the built-in FM radio, photos, and again the home screen. So this is what it looks like. And so let me just flip some of the screens here---- Well, first of all, I can go right in the music and just hit artist and go just right through like this. And let me go to---- and I want to find Ella Fitzgerald and I could just play a song. And again, I can swipe right and go through or I can just hold down any place-- Oops, not there---- and get right back to the home screen. So, it's very, very easy to navigate around. Let me show some of the other screens here. So we've got, again, radio, podcasts and photos, all the different ways of listening to music with all the other stuff I've got here. So, let me---- let see I want to listen to album a lot. I want that on the home page. I can just push down and jiggle it and move it just like I can with my other iOS devices. So, now I have albums on the front page. And again, I can just scroll through here real easy. The last thing I wanna show you was---- if we go home again---- let's go to the home screen. Let's see I clip this on and I clip this on upside down. I just take my two fingers and rotate it and change [unk]. So that gives you a little bit of an idea of the new iPod Touch. Amazing!
