No this isn't Nano deathmatch. Just wondering, I know the 1st gen. Nanos had screen crack issues and other things, but looking at them and esp. touching them I like the look and feel of the original black Nano better than the feel of the metal 2nd gen. Nano. I like the idea of 8GB vs. 4GB but I have an older 3G (or is it 2G) pre-click wheel 40GB iPod so I know no matter what my whole library won't fit. But I will be using it mainly for snowboarding and the gym. 1. How do the two compare for battery life? 2. Does the headphones lanyard work well for either? I had heard that the original Nanos disconnected easily from the lanyard headphones. Is this true? Did they improve that with the new Nanos? 3. What's better, the original style, black face, silver back or the new all metal style? Do the new ones just feel wierd in your hands?
