“While Apple’s updated fifth-gen video iPods are not as widely available as expected, the new second-gen iPod nanos began arriving in the United States in somewhat limited quantities on Wednesday,” AppleInsider reports.
“Each new nano ships in a completely translucent, hard plastic container that elegantly showcases the player while neatly tucking away the few accessories it includes,” AppleInsider reports. “Along with the iPod, Apple packs a pair of headphones, an accessory adapter, USB cable and iPod nano Quick Start booklet. The player no longer ships with a protective sleve.”
“Although the new nano is precisely the same height and width of its predecessor, Apple has conveniently (for its margins) offset the dock connector by about a millimeter, making the new nano completely incompatible with the first-generation iPod nano dock,” AppleInsider reports.
“Similarly, users will also have to plunk down extra change for a new pair of iPod nano lanyard head phones — the new nano’s headphone jack is spaced further away from the dock connector,” AppleInsider reports.
AppleInsider has many very nice close-up unboxing photos here.
