I know there has been a lot of stuff floating about recently with the new nano's getting scrathed so i thought i'd post this to give anyone new to the nano a kinda reference on what to expect. I got mine today and i wasn't taking any chances with the thing getting scratched so i put my decals on which i had bought previously from decalgirl.com. SPOT ON!! they are great and cover the i nano briliantly. I also invested in a screen protector because i didn't want my nano looking like my phone screen i.e. ****. I am going to buy a rubber cover though because the sides are just not protected enough (If at all) so i'm going to fork out $30 for one off speck producks.com. they seem decent enough and if they save me scratching my new toy even better. As for my first opinions on the nano, GREAT! Took no time to put 1.4GB of music onto it (About the same time it took me to make a cup of Tea.) The sound quality is great and the headphones are comfy as hell. Overall i'm really chuffed. For all those people who have been moaning about their i pods getting scratched i would say do your homework before you buy. I just bought a laptop today after about 3 weeks of looking and i managed to get one for 440 from 700 quid, so like i said it pays to look around. I hope everyone has as much fun with their i pod as i have and i hope this post has been of some help to those of you who are looking for some advice.
