When I saw pics of the short 3g nanos for the first time I hated it and preferred the 2g sticks all the way. But when I went to the Apple store and actually held one I began to really like them with their balanced squarish dimensions. Now we're back to the stick design but now I don't think the tall LCD design suits the stick shape of the body. The curve is a nice touch, but aesthetic wise, it would have looked better if the LCD was horizontal again and not vertical.

Your right I didnt like the fatty in the pictures but i loved them in the apple store also your right about the screen this new vertical screen looks like a cheap knock off on ebay but i wait till i hold it.

1. Which screen is essentially bigger?

2. Which one is better for watching movies on?


Besides, the design and accelerometer, any other differences? (Oh yea, and I guess Genius too)

Both the 3g nano and 4g nano have 2inch screens, once I found that out there was nothing really to convince me to change my 3g for a 4g.

When I first saw the leaked pics, I assumed a slightly bigger screen was the reason they did it. Obviously I was wrong.

Count me as another one that didn't like the squatty one until I saw it. Chances are I'll like the 4G better when I see it too. Happens every time.

I do believe the battery spec. loses an hour of video playback in the new one vs. the chubby. I like the chubby too.

Gotta agree, I didn't like them when I first saw them either...but after using one I loved it. I purchased the most recent (and final) generation: 8gb.

Frankly, I'm keeping my 3G nano (8 GB) for now. The reason is simple: even with the SwitchEasy Biscuit case over the player I can easily stuff my nano in a pants pocket or shirt pocket, something that might not be so easy to do with the "taller" nanos. Besides, I don't see much in the way of improved functionality compared to my 3G nano.
