    Ok, now you're just trolling.

    Oh wow, I forgot that older Nano. Wonder if anybody made fun of Nokia for their design choice.

    Perhaps the cross-licensing deal that Microsoft makes with Apple is where Nokia got the design choice in the first place?

    Looks more like an iPod Mini with a larger/better screen and no click wheel(?) to me.

    But then again...

    It does look suspiciously familiar.... Maybe a lawsuit from a KIRF? This thing was released back in '08, if memory serves me correctly.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Apple has had that design style as a prototype for awhile.

    Looks like the body of the iPod mini (just skinnier) and the elongated screen of last years nano to me but is funny none the less
