The Amazing 1st Generation iPod Nano

People the world over have wondered at how a small package such as the 1st generation iPod Nano could do so much. With a tiny color screen, it could not only play your favorite music, you could watch the music video too.

A Quick Look

The popular Apple iPod Nano was introduced to replace the iPod Mini. It is smaller and utilizes a flash drive rather than a hard drive to save information. The miniscule Nano measures a mere 40 mm wide by 90 mm long by 6.9 mm thick, and weighs a teeny-tiny 42 grams. It uses a rechargeable lithium battery that provides up to 14 hours of running time. The color screen boasts 65,636 colors at 176x132 pixels on a 38mm diagonal screen.

More Stats

The iPod Nano will support several sound recording formats. These are AAC (Advanced Audio Tuning), protected AAC, AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format), WAV (Waveform Audio File), Audible (through Amazon), and MP3. The iPod Nano was first introduced to the public at the end of 2005. It was available in 1 GB, 2 GB and 4 GB. The cost of the unit increased with the memory size and it came only in black and white.


There are still some of these on the market, fresh and out brand new, but it will take some good detective work to find them. Your best bet is to purchase a used or reconditioned iPod Nano. You’ll find these at Amazon, eBay, and Overstock.com. Depending on the GB size you might find them for as little £45 for a 2 GB 1st generation iPod Nano.
