iPod nano (2010) Review
Apple’s in-between-size iPod gets a makeover with an ultracompact design, intuitive multitouch display, and sporty clip.
(4 out of 5)
Since its launch in 2005, the iPod nano has been reinvented more times than Madonna: first it was a rectangle, then a square, then a thinner rectangle, and now it’s a square again.

It’s now almost the same size and shape as a shuffle, although it does more things, such as display photos and let runners track their workouts. But with the nano’s starting price of $149, $100 more than the shuffle, for what users is its slick interface worth the premium?
