    First, let me say I am not trying to offend anyone who bought red nano. I am really not. I actually want to buy red nano myself. My question is about how will people think about new nano color. Do you guys think iPod nano in red is not good for boys? Or am I just overreacting? I like the color, but I also think it could be little girl's color? I dunno. Please don't take this as any offensive post. Please just share your opinions. Thanks.

    If you like red, buy it. If you don't like red, don't buy it.

    There's nothing more to the question than that.

    Seconding this. Yours is the only opinion that matters. Since you're asking, I personally wouldn't consider it girly. It's red, not pink.

    Damn! Nice...

    I was just trying to decide between red and green. But, yea. I think I am going for red. Thank you all.

    They did the last time I checked. Or are we only discussing the new ones? Oops. :rolleyes:

    Agreed. It's your iPod, after all. Pick what color you want. And no, I don't think red is a "girly" color at all :)

    There's no such thing as a "girly" color to anyone over 15 besides rednecks.

    Red was my second choice, after silver. They're both really nice colours IMO, the other colours don't seem to stand out as much.

    Red is an awesome color. Plus, part of the purchase proceeds for the red model go to a good cause...

    Outside of the 3rd generation model of Red I wouldn't consider the red color girly at all. The 3rd gen/2nd color batch of 2G shuffles were more of a maroon color and even then I wouldn't call it girly.

    The red looks really nice. I have the green myself and I just bought my sister the pink one for an early Christmas present (since she obliterated her Nano).

    I got mine in red, and I don't even like the color. I guess the fact that it's a special edition tops it.

    So, you like red. Buy it and be yourself.

    For what it's worth the world's most famous English football team wear red. Are you saying that they're all a bit girly? Hmmm.

    And another totally philosophical thought – is there anything wrong with girls, anyway?

    I'll say the same thing I said in this thread.

    What is so bad about girly?

    If you like it, buy it. Owning something others consider girly doesn't make you a girl (or gay, if that's what you're worried about).

    Besides, what's more manly than not caring about what other people think?

    Red and black is a classic pairing. Some would say 'evil', 'aggressive', 'fire and brimstone'.
    It's not powder pink and the screen border is black...

    Red is my favorite iPod color, I got every nano in red since 3rd generation without ever feeling girly about it (if there is such a thing). Stay true to yourself, get what you like.

    No way. I love red. I wouldn't really care anyway even if it was considered a 'girly' colour. I like blue more though :)
