BusinessWeek reviews Nano
Apple's third-generation iPod nano "packs a punch," according to a new BusinessWeek review of the portable media player. Reporter Arik Hesseldahl decided to try Apple's latest Nano despite his preference for the full-size version that offers much more storage, only to discover that the tiny device had become his primary player. Hesseldahl says the 2-inch display is just fine for watching movies despite its small size, which is primarily due to the high pixel density which results in clarity. Apple's latest iPod nano produces the same sound quality as its larger siblings and is fairly priced for the features as well as the storage space offered, according to Hesseldahl. The reporter says he would like to see a more expensive version with more storage, and that he would tolerate extra thickness to accommodate that storage.
