iPod Nano Video & FM

September 10, 2009


Finally, FM in an apple! Nano now comes with FM radio built-in as well as a feature called Live Pause. This is similar to time-shifting found in digital video recorders and is achieved by recording live radio once you hit pause, so you can go right back to where you left off.

Another significance is a camera added to the iPod nano. This records video at VGA (640 x 480) resolution in H.264 format.
The new iPod nano will cost S$228 and S$288 for the 8GB and 16GB versions.
