    hi

    i went to the store yesterday, too crowed to spend time on the new nano

    but from what i could see, it seems to me that the screen has gained a better scratch proof treatment compared to previous generations

    can someone confirm ?

    thanks

    Yes, it does seem to be scratch 'resistant' not scratch 'proof' much like the iPhone screen.

    I had mine since last week and it seems to have been treated with oleophobic goodness too.

    The screen is most likely small enough that you can just use clear packing tape on it to protect the screen :p

    I doubt that. That would be a "feature" Apple would've touted.

    Small Stuff

    This nano is very small. It would seem very hard to break or crack the screen like the iPod touch. I imagine the same with scratching the device.

    I think the point would be that perfect optical clarity is not as essential as it is on a more visual device like the iPhone / Touch; Decently trimmed, I guess there would be no disadvantage to the looks.
