Hands on with the new iPod Nano 1.2 update
Via a simple Software update, available when syncing your iPod Nano with iTunes the version 1.2 of the iPod software maintains the iOS-like interface, but with a few significant changes. The first is that instead of displaying four tiny icons per screen, the iPod now displays only a single, much larger icon at a time; as before, you swipe left or right to view other icons, and tap an icon to access its functions. While the App icons and background appearance are otherwise identical, the new interface feels more like Apple’s Cover Flow feature, as you always see the edge of the icons to the left and right of the current one. It’s also much easier to tap a particular icon, especially when walking or exercising. The iPod Nano can now us its built-in accelerometer as the Nike+iPod sensor—not only is the dock-connector dongle no longer needed (much like with the iPod Touch), but you don’t even need a Nike+iPod sensor in your shoe. In other words, you can now use Nike+iPod with any shoe brand and without having to spend more money for the sensor and dongle.
Still does not have a calculator, a Mic and a larger-screen (320x240) to be perfect!
