iPod nanosNow that I’ve had some time to play with my new iPod nano I felt that some observations were in order. I was surprised by a few things with the iPod mini-replacement – both good and bad.
First off the nano is tiny, I mean ridiculously tiny. The ads and the images online don’t do it justice. You have to go see one at an Apple retailer to grasp the tiny form factor. As a result, the screen is tiny too. The nano’s color display is 176×132 pixels and 1.5-inches diagonally which is about 0.2 inches smaller than the iPod mini and 0.5 inches smaller than a full-size iPod (although it packs almost as many pixels as the full-size iPod).

HOW-TO: iPod nano Protection on the Cheap

Fellowes WriteRight iPod nanoYou’ve undoubtedly heard the reports of late about scratching and cracking iPod nano screens. While you can’t do much about the screen cracking, except of course to stop stuffing it into the pockets of your tight jeans, you can do something about the scratches until the first wave of nano cases shows up.
The first and best advice I can give is to keep the included screen sticker on the front of the nano. I’m not talking about the “don’t steal music” outer wrapping, under that there’s another thin clear piece of plastic on the front of the nano that you should keep intact to protect against scratches. If you’ve already removed it, you can try putting it back on, but it’s difficult.
