Apple’s Gold, Yellow, and Orange iPods Compared

Though we’ve put together a fairly exhaustive collection of iPod nano color comparison photos, one shot that we didn’t include was a comparison with the gold first-generation iPod mini—apparently Apple’s least popular color, and therefore discontinued when the second-generation mini was released.

Here’s the comparison. As expected, gold’s not exactly an inspiring color—a far cry from the saturated, intense ones that the new yellow and orange 4G nanos possess. But color tastes vary by season, country, and obviously individual preference, so it’ll be interesting to see if this, or any of last year’s similarly muted tones, ever returns to the iPod (or iPhone) family.
