There have been numerous reports that the iPod nano's LCD screen is very fragile and breaks frequently. This makes me feel a whole lot better about resisting tempation and not buying one. I even feel a little smart, since I felt it might be "too small" for me.
"It is way too fragile. Apple markets it in a pocket. Hell, Steve Jobs himself pulls it out of his when he announces it," wrote Peterson, who himself was smitten with the Nano upon its release. "It was in my pocket as I was walking and I sat down. No, I didn't sit on it."
So much for my hypothesis that the nano would improve Apple's earnings by reducing the support costs associated with a hard drive based player. Oops!
Here are some lines to selected sites online that provide more information about the nano's problems.
