Take a Look at 'Space Gray' iPod Nano



iPod nano has got a 'Space Gray' color to match the latest iPhone 5s. Does this mean the company from Cupertino will no longer produce new devices in black? Who knows.

Below you may take a look at Ben Pasternak’s video showing the slightly redesigned in terms of color Apple’s player.

Here’s the description from YouTube:

Got my hands on the latest color option when purchasing a iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch or a iPhone 5S "Space Gray". I give you all a first look at this color on the iPod Nano.

If to speak about me, although the 'Space Gray' iPod nano looks OK, I’d rather buy a black one. And what color would you prefer?
