Apple recently rolled out their latest iPod lineup and IMHO the most interesting device announced was the new 5th generation iPod nano. I had no plans to purchase a new Apple product, but couldn't pass up a few of the new key features of the nano, including the pedometer, FM radio, and video camera. The new nano is available in nine different colors and I went with the orange one since I wanted a color that stood out a bit from my other devices. You can check out my image gallery, along with a video walk around the device and a video that includes each of the modes in the video camera.

One of the QWERTY phones I included in my Back to School article was the Samsung Gravity 2 and I have had a couple of weeks to play with the Metallic Orange one. When it first launched it was priced at $29.99, but I now see on the T-Mobile site that it is up to $69.99 after instant discount and mail-in rebate. The Gravity 2 is a nice upgrade to the original Gravity with an updated camera (2 megapixel vs 1.3 megapixel), 3G wireless radio, integrated GPS receiver, and updated keyboard layout (4 row vs 3 row).
