Yesterday I picked the new iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED and thought I’d drop some photo’s of it here. Note that I think the actual full name of this iPod is absurd and in my mind doesn’t follow Apple’s standards for simplicity. It’s the most confusing product name…ever. I’m not sure I’ve heard anybody say it correctly twice in a row. But that’s another post for another day.
The nano RED is just like Apple’s regular line of iPod nano’s but it’s got a much greater cause. A portion ($10) of every iPod nano RED is donated to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa. Part marketing ploy? Sure. Could they be donating more? Probably. But you can’t bash them for atleast taking a step in the right direction.
The iPod nano line of iPod’s are a solid mix of the capacity of the regular iPods and the smaller size of something like the shuffle. It’s not quite that small, but it’s certainly not as wide as the regular iPods. I do think Apple has just about hit the smallest size they can with the nano’s. Sure they could make it smaller, but anything smaller than this with a screen really just hits the point of being too small.
