    I don't know about you but I like the new Nano with it's small screen.

    Soon we will see someone make use of this tiny product and make haters change their minds. Just looking how DJ's made use of the iPad's form makes me think someone is already planning to make use of the new Nano in some other, unique way.

    I am planning of using it as a watch myself with a strap...geekiness at it's best...heheh.

    How about you? Can you predict on the uses of this tiny product?

    I love the new Nano and there's a big chance i'll pick one up. I love the Nike+ integration and access to podcasts. Only thing is that i'd of liked to see a new app store, not a full blown store, but things like the iPod clickwheel games. I'd also of liked to see a mic for voice memos.

    I'm not too bothered about no video playback because I like to watch video on my nice 9.7" iPad rather than a small thumbnail. Unfortunately, there's a lot of good video podcasts out there that would still be great as audio.

    Nevertheless, I will too be using it as a watch, and pedometer.

    I would buy one just to use it as a Watch then in a week it will be jailbroken. Lol

    I'd never jailbreak my iPad but if someone can hack this Nano to play video, i'd be happy to.

    Jailbreaking is half the fun! I may consider one after a jailbreak or I get a chance to play with it. I just barely replaced my iPod Touch with an iPod Classic, I got a deal so I couldn't resist. I love the mega storage and not having to take my gloves off to change tracks or play/pause them. It would be nice to have a small thing to just clip on my shirt (tie clip anyone?). I don't need a video playing device because I have an HTC HD2 that does the job very well.

    The new iPod nano has a function, wake from sleep and show clock. CNET had a hands on and thats on there.

    so you could have the wrist band and not have to keep swiping back and forth to the clock! its always there!
