I’ve been covering the iPod nano since its release. And I have to say, to date, it seems to be one of the most discussed iPods since the original product launch. We all know there’s a bad batch of nanos out there with screen problems. But the other discussion, and the one that I think ultimately needs resolution, concerns the surface coating of the device.
I think Walt Mossberg sums it up best when he wrote today, “I believe Apple should include a strong, thin case with every nano, starting as soon as possible. And Apple should research some sort of tougher coating for future nano models.” I’m with Walt on this.
