iPod Nano Clip Adds Clip To New Nano

Nano Clip

Say what you want about the stupid, impossible-to-control previous generation iPod Nano, but don’t say its clip wasn’t useful.

If you wanted to clip your tie to your shirt whilst making both of them sag thanks to the extra weight, or if you wanted to go jogging and have the heavy little block of aluminum and glass pull at and eventually drop off your t-shirt sleeve, then the old Nano was ideal.

The new one gets handy buttons and no longer looks like a Shuffle-with-a-screen, but it lacks the clip. Luckily, for $20 you can put it right back.

The case was named named — in a fit of creativity — the iPod Nano Clip, and that’s what it is. Snap it in and you get a spring-loaded clip that will let you add a small amount of weight to any bag or item of clothing, and thanks to well-placed cutaways it won’t interfere with any buttons.

Now please excuse me, as I’m off to toss some, er clothes in the washing machine so I have an excuse to buy a new Nano, and therefore a new Nano clip. Available now.

    Garbage! (7th nano) The 6th was onto brilliance. The addition of the huge home button is the meaning of uninnovative! The addition of Bluetooth is the only pro. Videos… On a nano. Stupid! Nano is for mobility! I wanted a removable clip. Retina screen & Bluetooth. YES a watch. With 8gb storage only! It could easily go from watch to gym clip. Paired with the iPhone = received calls you view a name/ number and a red/green button. Green = out of pocket/purse or Bluetooth headset. How about iPhone music control. Or let’s say u leave your iPhone on table/ in car. Watch vibrates/ makes noise. How about controlling a keynote presentation from your watch! Add a mic, For Siri integration (paired iphone required) This is no nano nor the iwatch. This is a iPod touch mini! More than what we wanted. We have mp3 and better video on our phones. Or for not much more our real iPod touch! I’d get a shuffle before this POS! Consider the ball dropped!

    Already ordering one for the gf. She doesn’t care if your phone has better video. Her phone doesn’t.

    Terrible “upgrade”! I thought we were getting somewhere with the previous generation. Who would buy this generation? And what the hell for? Just to have it? FAIL
