Back Story ======= I owned a iPod Nano (5th Gen) for around 5 years and it was a fantastic little device. Reliable, easy-to-use and great battery life. I recently bought an iPod Nano (7th Gen) and its been a disaster Problems with the iPod Nano --------------------------------- 1) No camera - video recorder. Can't believe that Apple products detract features over time for the SAME price. 2) Diabolical Interface - With the central toggle button gone - you have rely on a very flakey touchscreen menu that is not all all accurate in song / podcast selection. The makes it very frustrating to use. 3) The FM radio on the iPod 5th Gen was powerful. It would even have greater reception and clarity than a Sony ICF-range radio - but alas the radio in the 7th gen iPod is cr@p. Static, fuzz and just general poor reception. 4) Battery life seems much worse compared to the 5th Gen iPod also. Overall ===== A very poor effort by Apple. If this is what they are letting out of their design studios and factories it really will put the Apple brand on a downward trajectory.
