Image for The iPod Nano: Worth it or Not?

The iPod Nano. Yep, pretty much anybody who knows anything about the technology nowadays knows about it. But even though most people are raving about it, is it really worth $150 of your hard-earned money? I recently bought a Nano and tested all of its features to find out.

On first look, the Nano is pretty impressive. Its slim body sports a jack to connect to your computer, to your headphones, and a small switch that allows you to "lock" the controls. The 2-inch widescreen allows you to easily switch the song your listening to as well as creating a fun movie experience; yes, you can fit a movie on the Nano! Inside the aluminum body is a accelerometer that allows several cool features. For example, when you shake the Nano, it immedietly switches to a random song.

The battery life of the Nano is not as good as I would have liked, but is still descent.

Overall, I enjoyed the Nano very much for listening to music and podcasts, but the iPod Touch would probably be a better choice if you wanted to do anything beyond that.
