Photos of Classic, 3G Nano

Apple's new iPod classic and next-generation iPod nanos began arriving at stores across the US -- one day ahead of the projected "weekend arrival." The flagship San Francisco Store had all of models of the new Nano line, but only the 80GB model of the iPod classic (both silver and black); however, all were still behind the counter -- not on display, but available for purchase. The classic iPod nano and shuffle lines were still on display along with the previous generation iPod video. Interestingly, thanks to the price drop of course, the iPhones were seemingly flying off the shelf. Many users were clamoring for the last of the $299 4GB iPhone models, which were limited in supply.

The anodized aluminum top, polished stainless steel back, and slim 6.5mm profile was much more appealing in person, but the five Nano colors were not quite what we expected (the Product Red was especially disappointing). The new iPod nano features a larger, brighter 2.0-inch display with the same screen 320-by-240-pixel resolution as the iPod classic, but offers an extremely 204 pixel-per-inch screen density for remarkable clarity. Apple says the new Nano supports up to 5 hours of video or up to 24 hours of audio on a single charge -- something we'll be testing very soon.

    53 pictures?

    There's someone with so much free time (and money) to not only buy new iPods, but take 53 pictures in states of unboxing and comparison.

    h***, I'm not even sure the point of like half the pictures (like, why so many pictures of docking connectors? Or showing the iPod booting with an Apple logo?)

    I was more thinking along the lines of... those pictures are ANYTHING BUY high res! Then again, for real hi res pictures, just go to the source:

    RE: Hmmm

    Umm.. did you try clicking on the pictures? And all the pictures Apple provides are all made on a computer anyway, seeing the real thing is a big difference.

    I am struck by how clumsy the old Nano looks in comparison to the new fatty nano. This new one has much nicer proportions.

    This is not meant to be flame bate, but the nano bares a striking resembelence to the Creative Zen.

    Just an observation.

    Worst Photos Ever

    What a joke to take 53 photos and have them ALL out of focus. What did you take these photos with, an Apple Quicktake 100?

    Steve said by this weekend, and that's tomorrow, so perhaps someone out there cares what they look like before going out to hunt for one.
