Was excited for this model to come out, not as tiny as the last generation. Has some nice upgrades from my current Nano in that they made the volume control actual buttons which is much easier when I'm working out. Also love the integrated Nike Plus which I've been using for years with the shoe microchip. The only thing I don't love it the touch screen. Not so functional when you're working out and sweaty. The only other negative is the lack of a "lock" button. It's a push button like a cell phone which is going to easily get pushed in my gym bag. Overall it's a nice upgrade at a reasonable price. My 5th gen Nano has lasted 3 years + so I look forward to a long life on this one too.

The product is not to bad. The only problem is the headphone connector. Its a bad design. If you simply push the jack in, it won't work. There is a mechanical flaw in the design or the production. The only way to have the comple good sound is to slightly pull the jack from it full inserted position. This takes a bit of time to get it, and then the sound is good.

          Comments about 16GB iPod nano (Pink, 7th Generation):

          We have been using cassette tape listening centers for up to 5 kids at a time to "read" a book along with the voice and turn the page "at the beep". We converted the tapes to .mp3 files and now the kids play them on the iPod Nano's. This has eliminated handling and replacing damaged tapes, We now make the books accessible to each Nano through a published iTunes library, where similar stories are organized as tracks of an album. We keep the tapes in storage as proof of ownership (for copyright reasons).

            I bought this so I don't drain out the battery of my smartphone listening to hour long audiobooks and it's perfect! Connects to bluetooth, has 3.5 mm audio jack. There's even a hacky way to sync your audible audiobooks from Kindle Unlimited plan to your ipod! (----------.)

                Comments about 16GB iPod nano (Yellow, 7th Generation):

                I have had previous generations fo the iPod nano, but this newest model is fantastic. The sound quality and size are perfect. I use this mostly at the gym. The only thing I did not like was the supplied headphones. I bought a sweat proof Sony pair from BH. Happy camper. Love the color too.

                Comments about Apple 16GB iPod nano (Blue, 7th Generation):

                It's a great upgrade to the Shuffle, and I can finally bring enough music with me to last for an entire bike ride. The only thing I wish it had was a built in clip like the shuffle, instead I got a 3rd party case/clip that makes it bulky and defeats the purpose of it's slick packaging. Still the pros for me outweigh the cons.
