Sonnet intros PodFreq for iPod nano

imageSonnet Technologies has announced the PodFreq Nano, a new version of its FM transmitter designed specifically for Apple’s iPod nano. In addition to FM broadcasting, the PodFreq Nano also incorporates a protective case, integrated dock, car charger, car cradle (vehicle mount sold separately), and telescoping antenna. It sells for $100.

“PodFreq Nano is simple to use—with its integrated, backlit display and dedicated tuning buttons, it is easy to quickly tune and broadcast to any empty station frequency without having to navigate through menus,” says Sonnet. “There are no cables to plug in and no software to install—just extend the antenna and
you are ready to Freq.”

worst product design ever.

this succesfully makes the ipod nano dreadfully ugly and bigger than the 60GB ipod.  why the hell would you buy this? 

its also powered by the ipod mini, i guess you have to buy that separately.

The nano’s port being on the left side of the nano obviously proved to be too much of a challenge to design around. All they did was move the nano over to center the port, and move the wheel and screen openings over accordingly. You can even see where the original, bigger wheel would be. Horrible, it’s like they took a regular ipod version and just changed the plastic a little. They should have moved the plug to the left to fit the nano design, or something else. The way they handled it is just bad.

Maybe Apple should have designed the iPod Nano with the dock connector in the middle not to the left, like the “big” iPods
