iPod Nano - why no retina?

I doubt it would've increased costs much to include a 640 by 360 screen, which is enough to make it a retina display. Small disappointment.

For what purpose?

I guess it would have been a bit better for video. The biggest difference I see with retina on iPhones and iPads is how text is rendered. I don't think anyone is going to be doing a lot of reading on their nano.

Even just swiping through icons, just looks more like everything is drawn on, instead of looking at a screen.

Again, not a big deal, many might not care, but I'd imagine loss in battery life/increase in cost would be so minimal I'm surprised Apple didn't just do it.
