“This is the biggest reinvention of the Apple iPod nano since its debut in 2005, and we think users are going to love it,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Replacing the click wheel with our Multi-Touch interface has enabled us to shrink the new Apple iPod nano into an amazingly small design that is instantly wearable with its built-in clip.” The new Apple iPod nano with Apple’s Multi-Touch interface allows users to access their songs, artists, albums and playlists with a tap or swipe of their finger on the display. Holding down a finger returns the user to the Home screen, and users can easily use two fingers to rotate the screen if it is clipped onto their clothing upside down. Users can also customize their Home screen by simply dragging icons from other screens onto the Home screen.

With an amazing new design that is nearly half the size and weight of its predecessor, the new ultra-portable Appel iPod nano music player is a natural workout companion. Clip the Apple iPod nano onto your workout clothing, touch your music and start your workout.
