Apple iPod Collection 2012
If it's the gift of music you're looking at this Christmas, the new iPod range has something for every price point, taste and aesthetic. The bite-sized Shuffle is perfect for the gym, commute or the needs of playlist junkies. Its lack of display is handily side-stepped by its VoiceOver ability, which can tell you exactly what it is you're listening to. The Nano has been completely overhauled with a larger, 2.5" touchscreen that lends itself to (very) portable movie watching and the built-in FM radio provides a handy alternative to your on-board music collection. The 'renanoed' design is a welcome change to the previous, more compact model and the enlarged display makes this a great choice for those not looking to spring for the full iPod Touch.
Speaking of which, the Touch v5 is the big daddy of the iPod range, squeezing the iPhone 5's 16:9 display into a far more affordable, cellular-free package. If you're looking for music and video on the go but don't need to make calls then this is a solid choice. It also makes a heroic portable gaming device thanks to the dual-core A5 processor. Throw in Apple's range of funky colours and the new, redesign ear buds and there's little here not to like. More information
