    Then we'd hopefully see something like this:

    Hehe. Just something I threw together in Photoshop, it's nothing great and I'm sure it's missing some information. But I think it would be nice to get such an interface from Nike+ while jogging.

    Have fun...not too sure I'd be running with my iPhone.


    That screen is just to nice to risk...not to mention it a fair bit larger then the Nano, or shuffle

    I think it's a great idea. I don't own an iPhone, but I do run with my phone in case of emergencies, so why not integrate Nike+?

    yea, they already make a case for the iphone that attaches to your for when you run like they do for the iPod so I also agree that its an awesome idea.

    in case they are smart ? i think they ARE smart. Almost everything nike does is right, they know what to do.. if worth doing this, just wait and you will see.

    Because if I fall or the iphone falls = $600

    If my shuffle or nano falls I am looking at $100.

    I am keeping my nano and using my nike kit with it.

    I think the iPhone is too heavy to comfortably run. I find having a display when running is of little use.

    What I would really like is Nike+ functionality added to the shuffle. No need then for armbands and what not.

    Cheers!

    I think its an awesome feature and it should be included.

    If YOU don't run with a phone, then thats fine, but that doesn't mean it would not be a good idea for others.

    I am currently running with my Nano and I carry my iPhone on me.

    I carry a phone incase of emergencies or if someone from my work needs me. So for me (and others) this would be ideal since I am running with it ANYWAY.

    Except for that whole not-knowing-how-to-make-a-decent-running shoe-thing. :D

    Some one overpaid for their shuffle, and under paid for their Nano

    Except exploiting third world labor to fatten the pockets of shareholders and CEOs.

    Don't most people take their phone with them when they go jogging in case they get into difficulties?

    I don't, although I only jog in populated areas. I see the sensibility of it, though. My girlfriend takes hers, I think.

    haha

    You really can't get away, even for an hour to go running?

    Wow.

    Ease off. Maybe they mean emergencies as in injury or accident.

    It's actually quite a sensible use of a phone, not everyone will be running in built up urban areas.
