Apple iPod Nano 7th Generation Philippines Price, Release Date, Complete Specifications, Features

I'm not sure if it's Apple's intention, but its new 7th Generation iPod Nano somehow ended up looking like a shrunk Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone.

And that only means, it also looks fairly attractive.

Looking nothing like the iDevice it superseded, the new iPod Nano features a 2.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display and a physical home button, which is kinda like what you'll find on the bigger and more expensive iPod Touch.

You won't be able to put a strap on this one and use it as a wristwatch (Well, actually, if you're creative enough, you can. But come on, don't you think it's a tad large for that?), but having a larger display means that you can actually use the device to watch movies and to get a better photo viewing experience. Shipping with Apple's new earphones called EarPods, the new iPod Nano is also expected to deliver an enhanced and more enjoyable music-playing experience.

The user interface is largely the same as that of the iPod Nano 6th Generation only it has that extra room for an additional row of icons, it comes with pre-installed FM Radio app, and - of course - the home button makes it far easier to go back to the home screen.

The back case is made of anodized aluminum giving it an elegant look while making the device more durable despite measuring only 5.4 millimeters at its thickest point.

The 16GB Apple iPod Nano 7th Generation, which comes in various color options namely - Yellow, Pink, Black, White, Green, Purple, and Sky Blue - is now available for pre-order in the Philippines via Apple Store Online. You can get the iDevice for only Php 8,290 with free iPod engraving and delivery.

TP Thoughts:

I think it's cute. But I'm not crazy over it. Because really, for an additional Php 2,000 or so you can already get a 4th Generation iPod Touch, which is leaps and bounds more powerful and feature-packed.
