All About The 5th Generation iPod Nano

Since their inception in 2001, Apple's iPods have transformed the digital music market, bringing together both style and functionality into a single product. Following on from the iPod Mini series, the iPod Nano has seen a number of changes since its initial release in 2005, referred to as 'generations'.

The 5th Generation iPod Nano

The 5th Generation iPod Nano was unveiled in 2009, in both 8GB and 16GB models. Available at a cheaper price than the larger models, the 5th generation iPod had a 2.22 inch diagonal screen - bigger than previous generations - as well as other features such as an integrated video camera, microphone, FM radio with multiple radio regions and LivePause. Further options included a pedometer and a speaker.

Aesthetically, the 5th generation iPod came in colours similar to the iPod Nano Chromatic models, although it was given a glossier finish than previous generations. Colour options included Silver, Black, Purple, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Red, Green and Pink.

Battery life for the 5th generation iPod Nano is said to last for around 24 hours of music playback and 5 hours of video playback - an improvement on the 4th generation model. In-built ram is doubled at 64MB and the camera is capable of capturing 0.3 megapixels. Finally, the Nano connects to computers via a USB cable, as with all other models.

Is It Still Available?

As of September 2010, the 5th generation iPod Nano was officially replaced by the 6th generation model, however it is still available at certain locations, including eBay.co.uk and Okobe.co.uk.
