The original black Nano was notorious for scratching. It seemed that the dust floating in the air was enough to scratch that thing. And people are telling that the black iPod has a similar coating, so it should scratch just as easily. But.... does it? Yesterday I took a closer look to the 5th gen iPods at a nearby electronics store. I noticed no scratches on the black iPod. and when the sales-clerk was not looking, I tried to scratch it with my fingernail: no luck. So does it really scratch that easily?
