Apple's New 'Space Gray' iPod Nano Shown in Brief Video

Alongside its iPhone media event earlier this week, Apple quietly introduced new "space gray" versions of its iPod touch, iPod nano, and iPod shuffle, replacing the black models of those devices with the new color.

Australian Ben Pasternak has now posted a brief video offering a first look at the new color option for the iPod nano. The video shows the front and rear of the device, with the anodized color of the device appearing lighter than the outgoing "Black/Slate" option. The anodized matte finish also helps minimize fingerprints that can be highly visible on more reflective surfaces seen in some of Apple's other products.


Earlier this week, Apple announced that the new iPhone 5s would also be sporting the new Space Gray color, similarly replacing the black/slate color offered on the iPhone 5. All of the iPod models with the new color option are currently available, with the iPhone 5s set to go on sale next Friday, September 20.

Hard to judge this on a video, probably have to be seen in person to get a feel for it.

Perhaps a good idea would have been to show it side by side with the slate iPhone 5 as a reference?

Anyhow, pretty cool video.

This should make the scratches much less apparent on all the upcoming products, and in my opinion still looks great.

Somewhat off topic, but the voice on the video makes me feel ooold. :(

The problem with the black / slate is that it was a later of paint on top of silver that easily scratched off. I had my phone in a case from the moment it arrived and still got tiny scratches that revealed the silver cover underneath! It drove me insane, so I switched to the white one instead. Hopefully they have fixed this problem with the space grey color so I can switch back to a black face phone
