Pros

physical volume controls

8 agree

One of the only iPods that features FM radio playback

7 agree

built-on clip design allows for easy access - can be pinned almost anywhere on you body, makes use during exercise possible without having to buy third party bands

6 agree

the same price as the last generation at launch (doesn't start more expensive and get cheaper as the device gets older, as is common with most consumer electronics - a great deal to buy at launch)

6 agree

240 x 240px capacitive multitouch display - a first for the Nano

5 agree

lighter and much more compact than the last generation - almost half the weight (21 vs 36g)

4 agree

comes in 7 different colours

3 agree

provides more of a focus on the Nano being a music-centric device - rather than the previous generation camera wielding version, the jack-of-all-trades Touch

2 agree

Full screen analog clockface + wristband = nifty watch (and it works reasonably well clipped there when listening to music)

1 agrees

Small screen doesn't really interfere with the functionality.

1 agrees

Slick interface so that mixes bits of iOS and the previous Nano UI.

Cons

the same capacities as the last generation devices

5 agree

poor codec support

4 agree

lacks the video playback capabilities of the previous generation Nano

3 agree

questionable value next to the much more versatile iPod Touch

3 agree

works with iTunes only - designed with a proprietary 'walled garden' approach in mind (the intention to sell you music and applications from a single source, limit how you use your device)

2 agree

loses the camera of the previous generation

2 agree

the same price throughout its life cycle (generally becomes a worse deal as the year progresses as an upgraded model will be available for the same cost to the consumer in September)

2 agree

the first iPod Nano with no physical playback controls

1 agrees

No additional apps or app store available (atleast as of launch)

Edit

 

The Apple iPod Nano is a portable MP3 player with a touchscreen interface. This is the 6th generation of the Apple iPod Nano, and has been redesigned to use a smaller display that uses a higher density of pixels and supports multi-touch. The camera and voice recorder seen in previous generations have been removed, as well as the external speaker. Features that have been preserved include the 30-pin dock connector for use in a wide variety of iPod compatible peripherals, the Nike fitness option for use with pedometer functionality, and an FM radio tuner. There are 8 GB and 16 GB capacity versions available, and the battery can support over 24 hours of playback on a single charge.
