    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.

    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.
