Apple iPod nano (7th Gen)The iPod nano (7th Gen/2.5" Multitouch) features a 2.5" color TFT display (240x432, 202 ppi) and 16 GB of flash storage in an aluminum housing originally offered in eight colors -- dark gray "slate," silver, purple, pink, yellow, green, blue, and red (on September 10, 2013, Apple swapped the "slate" color for a gunmetal "space gray") -- with either a black or white glass front (black for the slate and space gray options and white for the others).

It resembles a "mini iPod touch" and likewise has a "home" button (like the iPod touch and iPhone, but with a circle icon rather than a square with rounded corners), supports a multitouch interface, and runs an iOS-inspired operating system but it cannot run iOS applications.

Other features include H.264 video playback support (720x576), Bluetooth 4.0 for use with Bluetooth-enabled headphones, speakers, and compatible car stereos, an integrated pedometer, and FM radio with "live pause" functionality as well as Nike+iPod, VoiceOver, and "Shake to Shuffle" support. It does not have a microphone, speaker, or camera.

The 16 GB of flash memory is capable of holding roughly 4000 songs or 14,000 photos, respectively, and Apple estimates that battery life is "up to" 30 hours of music playback or 3.5 hours of video playback when fully charged.
