  1. The new apple Nano 5g appears just as sleek and beautiful as the commendable 4th generation Nano.It is nice, if you carry your Nano everywhere, to have the ability to take video. Cool.
    The new nano includes a FM Turner. Blah you might say? Yes, that is not particularly exciting, BUT the Nano adds one cool feature to FM Radio. You can “pause,” the radio up to 15 minutes, such as you might do with the DVR connected to your television. It works flawlessly.
