I have recently heard that the iPod Nano has been stumbling out of the gate. The marketing of the recent edition of the iPod has a sleek, wicked design and technological fire power to boot. The unit is thin, paper light, and capable of holding up to 2 gigs of music, photos and more. However, the rumors have been flying around the Internet that this little piece of technology isn’t worth your money until Apple works out a few kinks with the next edition.
Some owners are saying that the screen is too easily scratched while others say their screens cracked or failed unexplicably. Others are also saying that they actual unit also scratches too easily, however I have read here is an easy solution to make your iPod Nano look brand new.
According to a MacWorld article, “These are minor issues involving a vendor quality problem in a small number of units,” Schiller told MacCentral. “In fact, this issue has affected less than 1/10 of 1 percent of the total iPod nano units that we’ve shipped. It is not a design issue.” Apple said that the screens on the iPod nano are made with the same material that is found in the company’s fourth-generation iPod, which, to date, is complaint free. “If customers are concerned about scratching we suggest they use one of the many iPod nano cases to protect their iPod.”
Schiller said that if customers find they have this problem, all they have to do is contact AppleCare and their iPod will be replaced. I think I am going to wait to buy an iPod Nano.
