Say hello to the new Nano

The seventh-generation iPod Nano makes a clean break from the its square-shaped predecessor. It sports a rectangular design (3 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide) and a 2.5-inch multitouch display that shows a grid of six menu icons. The display's 240-by-432-pixel resolution is fine, but viewing angles aren't ideal. Below it is a circular home button.

Since the new Nano uses Apple's new Lightning connector, you won't be able to use any 30-pin cables you might have around the house.

The slim Nano measures just 0.21 inch (5.4mm) thick. The volume on the right side includes a center button that works as a play/pause and also functions for VoiceOver navigation, similar to the iPod Shuffle.

The rear side shows just the Apple logo on a single sheet of colored aluminum. We looked at the green version, but seven other colors are available.

You can access the Nano's features in the Settings menu. Bluetooth 4.0 is onboard, but no Wi-Fi means that you can't go online or download content wirelessly.
