iLounge has posted a comparison gallery featuring the newest color of the iPod nano and iPod shuffle. While Apple.com’s web site calls it “Space Gray,” the newly released iPod color is only listed as “gray” on the nano’s packaging, and has no name on the shuffle’s smaller box. Our photos compare it to the previous slate and silver versions of the device, as well as the first-generation iPhone that some have said the color would resemble. In person, the gray color is surprisingly close to Apple’s classic silver aluminum—just a little darker—with small differentiating touches such as a dark Apple logo on the iPod shuffle’s back, and a dark wireless antenna compartment on the iPod nano.
The new gray color is markedly lighter than the now discontinued slate color. iLounge will have complete unboxing and color comparison photos of the gray iPod touch, as well as the space gray iPhone 5s next Friday upon release.
