Second-Generation iPod nano - The second generation iPod nano is characterized by its size, corners, colors, and the location of its heaphone port.
The second-generation nano has corners that are slightly sharper than the rounded corners used in the first-generation model. These models are also slightly smaller than the first generation. Headphone and dock connector ports are both located on the bottom of the iPod.
In response, to the scratching problems that plagued some 1st generation models, the 2nd generation nano included a scratch-resistant casing. Like its predecessor, it used a clickwheel to control the nano and was able to display photos. This model added support for gapless playback.
