I recently bought a 2g shuffle at Best Buy to replace my old 512 MB shuffle that I lost at the gym a while back. Well, the new shuffle is still in its box because I ordered a 2gb Nano online from the Apple store. I need something I can run with and take on climbing trips for long days in the tent (boredom is a serious problem). I liked the nano's screen and super long battery life, but I'm considering canceling my order online and returning the 2g shuffle for a 1g. Here's why: 2g shuffle is super small and great to run with, but it has a relatively short battery life and no external battery pack available. Nano is okay to run with and has great battery life, but now it seems like I'm gonna end up with a 4 or 8 gig iPhone in January. It seems a little excessive to have both an iPhone and a Nano. The 1g shuffle is really cheap right now, and Apple makes a battery pack which would be pretty nice to take climbing- battery life should be longer than the nano with a couple AAA's. No screen though. What do you think? EDIT: I'm not even sure you can find the 1g shuffle's anymore...I guess I'll stick with the nano.
