Introduction

MP3 Players have evolved a lot since they first burst on to the scene. Apple really surprised people with their iPod MP3 Player and it really took off. You can see why too, easy to use controls, smooth menus, and the ease of syncing everything through iTunes. Apple has such a hold on the MP3 player market many people don't ask if you have an MP3 player, they ask if you have an iPod. The iPod Nano is Apple's midrange model of iPod and today we are going to take a look at the 3rd generation model which was introduced in late 2007.

Packaging

We received this iPod from Geeks.com so as always it arrived quick and nicely packed. It came in a big box with a few other products. Once we unpacked everything from the big box we found the iPod inside of a plastic container. Once out of that container the iPod was in its retail packaging, which is a small plastic container.

When you get the container open you will find the iPod Nano, USB cable, headphones, dock adapter, a quick start guide, and some Apple stickers.
