Generic iPod nano, shuffle clones emerge

iPod nano, shuffle clones

Direct clones of Apple's most recent iPods have surfaced, according to Electronista. The Shuffle2-Style MP3 Player is an obvious parallel to Apple's screenless device, complete with an integrated clip and similar playback order controls; a 1GB version ships from the online store for $19 but may require the Shuffle II cradle ($5), an imitation of the iPod shuffle's dock for transferring and charging through USB. Equally imitative is the Nano2-Style MP4 Player, which resembles Apple's mid-range jukebox with only slight differences: a slightly larger screen and data sync through a mini-USB cable separate it from the original. It too is available from DealExtreme with 1GB of storage for $27. The manufacturer of the two devices is unnamed. Visit Electronista for more images.

    >10x heavier

    If that weight is correct this thing weighs a ton (relatively speaking) as the Apple shuffle weighs in at 0.55 Oz. Hope that clip grips like iron.

    re:dimensions

    Someone used a calculator for the US specs postings....

    3.543307083" = 9.0 cm

    Apparently rounding is considered imprecise

    Precision is the enemy of accuracy.

    If only Americans could just understand dimensions of 90 40 5 mm when they see 'em . . .
