iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED Review and Gallery

33 Comments

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.

At any rate, without further ado, I present to you the iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED:

Did I mention if you buy it online, you can get it laser-engraved for free?

Alright, listen up. I just bought the (PRODUCT) RED iPod, and it’s great. The only setback of buying the red one is that I had to buy it online. And I did it for one reason, and one alone; it’s RED. Nobody else in my school has it, and the fact that $10 (which goes a long way in africa) went to the African AIDS Fund is just great. Marketing ploy or not, I would choose this (even if it wasn’t red) iPod over all other MP3 players, or ipods for that matter, too. I also bought it with money I earned myself, so I can’t take it for granted either. This is the single greatest product Apple has ever made.

I feel good about buying this one. Red is my favorite color, it’s the right size and price, and I help fight AIDS. I don’t know if it’s a marketing stunt, but I was gonna get an iPod anyways.

We can offer many kinds of nano materials and products. one can go to our website to check it. Positioned in Pudong New District, Shanghai – the international science, technology and financial center of China, Shanghai Huzheng Nanotechnology Co., Ltd. was established by members of nano-technological research experts team formed by Japanese and Korean who have been engaged in this field for many years. With a global vision, we set our foothold in Asia and take root in Shanghai, to integrate R&D, production and sales, as well as pool a great source of first-class scientific research talents and management teams from China, Korea and Japan. Based on independent innovation, we have successfully developed nano-level (0.02nm-20nm) powders, colloids and liquors products with Au, Ag, Pt and Cu, as well as nano metal oxide such as SnO, Tio2, ITO, and ATO. Currently we have produced and sold full-range indoor air purifying products including photocatalyst, coolcatalyst and other decontaminants used to remove formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia and TVOC. In particular, our Nano-Silver series antibacterial materials have been widely applied in a great number of fields such as ceramics, plastic, coating, textile, paper, cosmetics, medicine and commodities. Largely due to these predominance, we have been supplying antibacterial materials to many large transnational corporations such as Hyundai, Samsung, SK and Korean Ceramics in long term, with over 10 types of products exported to America, Japan, UK and Holand. And back in China, our air purifying products are extraordinarily favored by domestic consumers. Reliable quality guarantee as well as excellent pre-sales & after-sales services all contribute to the best reputation of our products around the world. Tens of new nano technologies developed by us have applied invention patents in China, Japan and Korea etc., with many products certified by US FDA and domestic authoritative authentication institutions. Our company has passed ISO9001:2000 Quality Certification System.

Just a thought, but would people send in their iPods to get them customized for a charity cause? If you could get any color you wanted or any pattern on your iPod for $50, knowing it would go to charity would you part with it for a week or two?

Kristen

That’s a damn sexy iPod, but I’d still rather have the pink or blue one and just donate money to the cause.

Emr

Why is everybody getting stressed about a name? Its just a name! Like Andreas said, there is a website full of product (RED) stuff. The important thing is the money being given to help fight HIV and AIDS. Okay, so $10 isnt a lot but its a step in the right direction so we’ll give them that.

Pierre Lourens

Ok, I think we are beating a dead horse with the naming thing. I think we all understand that it is because of joinred.com. Other than that, thank you for the pictures of the iPod. I am planning to buy one of these within the next couple of weeks, and get the Nike+ sports kit, too.

Peter Garner

I commend Apple for this move. Some may say that $10 isn’t much, but when you consider that Apple will sell millions of these things, that’s tens of millions of dollars going to fight AIDS in Africa. And no matter how you slice it, tens of millions is a lot of money.

Well Chuchk, while I see your point…wouldn’t they have done (RED) instead of (PRODUCT).

Or maybe they could have done producte(red). That’s pronounced pro-duc-te-red. What on earth that means, I don’t know. :P

Matthew

Great photos.

DBH has it right: clearly a product designed to benefit an organization such as PR must include their name.

DBH

Very cool looking, I’m surprised they never had a red ipod anyway. I agree the (product) red name is clunky, but at the same time, there wasn’t much apple could do in the way of choosing it. (product) red is affiliating with many brands/companies to support AIDS/AIDS in Africa… so I guess that means various (products) are going to have new jazzy clunky (but charitable!) names.

Josh Pigford

Wells sure, but it’s not like it’s a different product. I’ve already got a 20GB iPod that does fine for me. This was for my wife. :)
