High-quality photos of Apple's second-gen iPod nano

While Apple's updated fifth-gen video iPods are not as widely available as expected, the new second-gen iPod nanos began arriving in the United States in somewhat limited quantities on Wednesday.

Each new nano ships in a completely translucent, hard plastic container that elegantly showcases the player while neatly tucking away the few accessories it includes.

Along with the iPod, Apple packs a pair of headphones, an accessory adapter, USB cable and iPod nano Quick Start booklet. The player no longer ships with a protective sleeve.

Although the new nano is precisely the same height and width of its predecessor, Apple has conveniently (for its margins) offset the dock connector by about a millimeter, making the new nano completely incompatible with the first-generation iPod nano dock.

Similarly, users will also have to plunk down extra change for a new pair of iPod nano lanyard head phones — the new nano's headphone jack is spaced further away from the dock connector.

We'll definitely have a lot more to say about the new nano after some thorough testing. In the meantime, please enjoy the following unboxing photos.
