It wasn’t too long ago that my nieces were very happy to have an MP3 player. I mean they could have all their favorite music and take it wherever they wanted. Now that they are a bit older, the old MP3 player just does not satisfy them anymore. They want something better and with more functionality. Something like the 8gb ipod nano. The iPod Nano is small and portable just like their MP3 player, but has much more functionality.
Another advantage of the Nano is the fact that it can play video and has 16GB of built in memory. They can still have MP3 formatted music as well as other video and audio formats. This is something that both of my nieces would enjoy. They have to be careful of my youngest daughter though. She will want to handle any new “gadget” that comes into the house.
One of the things I like about the Nano is the battery life. The battery life supports 24 hours of music or 5 hours of video. If you have an iPod dock, you Nano will fit right in. It also has a USB port to connect to other devices. So for my nieces this would make a great gift.
