    Seeing as they say it only supports the Nano, then i am pretty sure they are not lying to you

    Because they don't want to explicitly tell you to run with your hard drive-based iPod, which could give you more leverage against them if your iPod breaks due to the vibrations caused by running.

    i won't want to use my 5g ipod to do exercise anyway, i am still using my mini for sports. the 5g is too big too bulky, to difficult to keep on your body (like who wears a belt to run, if you have a lanyerd it hits your boobs, pockets are not deep enough (or rather my clotehs don't have pockets)

    sounds exciting, but how will this nike/ ipod thing work in the non running enviornment?
