2 GBs of songs equals 33 hours of listening. You would have to charge the battery 3 times to listen to all the songs once. You could refill with new playlists while charging. How is this inconvenient? What is the point of more storage? As I see it, the Nano is designed to be convenient to carry and listen while on the move. If storage is a big deal, the iPod is still there. Update: I thought about what I previously posted and I apparently talked myself into the 2GB nano. Because, I just got back from the Woodlands (near Houston) Apple store where i purchased the Black 2GB nano. They were all sold out of 4GBs both black and white. I also have a 40GB iPod Photo so storage is not a problem. Why did I buy the nano? - Because it is cool and I could.
