2nd Generation iPod nano

In September 2006, Apple replaced the year-old plastic 1G iPod nano with a new aluminum bodied version virtually the same size and just a tiny bit lighter. The low-end model now came with 2 GB of storage, there was a 4 GB model in the middle, and the top-end Nano had 8 GB.

The display is 40% brighter, and battery life jumped from 14 hours to 24 hours. This was the first Nano to ship with gapless playback.
