First Hands-On: Holiday 2007 vs. 2006 iPod shuffle, nano colors
Wondering how Apple has changed the colors of its iPod shuffles and nanos from the late 2006 models to the new holiday 2007 versions? We’ve taken a bunch of photographs to show off the new lineup.
While the shuffles’ prices and capacities have remained the same—1GB is still $79—and there’s still a simple silver aluminum shuffle, the new four colors are more muted than their predecessors, with a cranberry red (Product (RED)) shuffle replacing the prior pink version, and purple replacing orange in the family. Our hands-on photos above show how the new red, green, blue, and purple shuffles look by comparison with last year’s most similar colors.
The new third-generation iPod nano colors can also be seen here, compared against last year’s colors, which were the same as the shuffle colors save for the red nano. The holiday 2007 green and blue are notably muted by comparison with last year’s colors, while the new red’s a different shade. Also interesting is the black used in the new nano, which has a slight iridescence. We’re not sure whether it’s exactly the same black as the one used in the iPod classic; both of iLounge’s editors on site thought that the nano had a brighter, more metallic lustre. It could just have been the lighting.
