In his latest “Personal Technology” column for The Wall Street Journal, Walt Mossberg evaluates Apple’s latest iPod, the iPod nano, and is “smitten.” The columnist feels that the nano even exceeds Apple’s performance claims. “The nano has the best combination of beauty and functionality of any music player I’ve tested — including the iconic original white iPod. And it sounds great. I plan to buy one for myself this weekend, when it is due to reach stores in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
Available in classic iPod white, or a lustrous black (my favorite), the nano is not only small, it’s stunningly skinny — about the thickness of five credit cards stacked on top of one another. That means it can be carried easily in even the snuggest of clothing and the smallest of purses, and worn comfortably during exercise. You could even carry it in a wallet, if you were sure you wouldn’t sit on it,” he writes.
