    So, the iPhone can do video at 4gb and 8gb, why can't my current gen nano?

    Data capacity has absolutely nothing to do with the features.

    The reason it doesn't is who would really want to watch video on that small of a screen? the only way that a Nano would get video is if they made the Nanos full screen which isn't too unlikely for one of the next revisions IMO.

    The nano's internals weren't designed to handle video. That, and there's a tiny screen.

    I believe if you were to put iPod Linux onto the Nano that would give you video capabilities, but i'm not entirely sure.
