iPod nano (2nd Generation)

Introduced: September 2006
Terminated: n/a


The second generation of the iPod nano brought back the colors seen in the discontinued iPod mini, but brighter.  The case of the nano had been modified slightly with more rounded edges.  There were three configurations available.  The 2Gb configuration was only available in silver.  The 4Gb configuration was available in silver, blue, green or pink and the 8Gb configuration was available only in black.


Although the case and colors gave the iPod nano (2nd Generation) a new look, beyond the increase in the size of the high end configuration, there was little change from the previous model.

  • The good thing in second-generation Apple iPod Nano takes on a new scratch-resistant aluminum body, which is available in a variety of bright and shiny colors; it’s still super slender but more durable, thanks to a seamless construction. -Tire Works

  • The Ipod nano is a very useful gadget, but it has being manufactured by Apple, I think it has some dll file extension incompatibilities with Windows XP. I don’t know if the same problems exists with Windows 7 or with the upcoming Windows 8.
