Apple iPod nano 2nd GenAs it uses flash memory but colored aluminum cases, the Apple iPod nano (Second Generation) looks like a cross between the first generation iPod nano and the second generation iPod mini. It uses either 2 GB, 4 GB, or 8 GB of flash memory, capable of supporting either 500, 1000, or 2000 songs, respectively. Regardless of capacity, every iPod nano (2G) is capable of holding "up to" 25,000 iPod nano-viewable photos, but none support video playback. The 2 GB model is available in silver, the 4 GB model in silver, green, blue, and pink, and the 8 GB model in black only. Hardware enhancements from the original iPod nano include longer battery life (a reported 24 hours), and a brigher 1.5 inch (diagonal) LCD display. The software was improved with a search engine.
