On September 12, 2006, Apple updated the Nano line. The second-generation Nano features scratch-resistant, anodized aluminium casing like the earlier Mini's design; the multiple color choices (silver, green, pink, blue, and black) mirror that of the Mini as well. However, unlike the second-generation Mini, the button labels do not match the color of the Nano. Instead, they are gray, like the first-generation Mini, except for the black iPod which has a black click wheel. The second-generation Nano features "a brighter, more vibrant display", a battery life upgrade (from 14 to 24 hours), and doubled storage sizes with the new 2, 4, and 8 GB models (compared to the previous 1, 2, and 4 GB models). The second generation iPod nanos also support gapless playback of audio files, a new search option, and a 40 percent brighter screen. The 2 GB model was available in silver only. The 4 GB was initially available in green, blue, silver, or pink. The 8 GB model was initially only available in black but Product Red was later added. Apple claims that the second generation iPod nano's packaging is "32% lighter and uses 52% less volume than the first generation", thereby reducing environmental impact and shipping cost at the same time.

On October 13, 2006, Apple announced a special edition iPod nano Product Red, with a red exterior and 4 GB of storage. For each red iPod nano sold in the United States, Apple donates US$10 to the Product Red initiative, while retaining the regular price. On November 3, 2006, Apple introduced a red 8 GB model, due to "outstanding customer demand", while also retaining the same price point of the black model with an equally large storage capacity.

On December 26-27 2006, Apple Computer's website and servers had crashed due to people downloading iTunes software since so many iPods were sold that Christmas season.

I'll admit that I was never interested in any type of portable music device outside of the transister radio I used to carry with me to professional football games (in the days before video scoreboards and microphones for the refs) so I could understand what was happening on the field.  This radio used to go with me for trips to the beach during the summer.  Since those bygone days I had not had another type of portable device and never thought I would need one.  I would generally …

Of course not. But do I have them? Absolutely I do!  I had two iPods prior to the nano and in the spirit of the holidays decided to get one as a gift to spread some musical cheer. I debated the capacity of the classic vs. the portability and convenience of the nano and came to the conclusion that while it is awesome to be able to carry every song you'd ever heard in your life around with you, the smaller, and infinitely more portable nano was the way to go.  Turns out the intended …
