Exploring the Features of the iPod Nano: A Deep Dive

A tip of the hat to narco for sharing this intriguing update. A Japanese website has successfully acquired an iPod nano and proceeded to meticulously dissect it.

For those interested, here is a link to a rough translation of their findings.

Based on the images and the somewhat garbled translation, it seems the 4GB version of the iPod nano is equipped with two 2GB flash memory chips, whereas the 2GB model contains just a single chip. Unfortunately, it appears that these memory chips are not suitable for repurposing in digital cameras as was done with the iPod mini.

That’s a bit of a letdown.

Nevertheless, I recommend visiting the site to view the detailed images in their full resolution.

[Thanks, narco!]
