The 3rd-generation iPod nano is a portable media player developed by Apple and released on September 5, 2007. The third generation model updates the iPod nano series with a wider design.[1]

New features

  • Video playback
  • Larger and brighter display
  • Cover flow
  • Games
  • Full metal design[2]

The 3G retains the 30-pin dock connector, which making it compatible with other iPod accessories already on the market. Its new shape (narrower and wider than the old nano) means that some accessories may fit better than others. This is the first iPod nano system with the ability to play video, except for 1st-generation iPod nanos running Rockbox.
