Eh- besides the cool touch screen I prefer my old nano 2nd GEN for what I need

Summary: First off I got this Ipod as a rewards redemption through my credit card. I was very excited as I was still using the old Nano 2nd generation. My main purposes for this Ipod: 1. I have an adapter in my car's center console that allows me to plug in my Ipod and it will play throught my CD deck. My original Nano plugged right in, worked great and the car would charge it the whole time it was plugged in. 2.
Summary: I loved the size of this little ipod as well as its features (especially the FM radio function), but after about a week (approximately 5 uses), the iPod stopped working completely. I'm giving two stars instead of one because the vendor promptly re-imbursed me for my purchase.
Summary: Mainly use device when working out and wanted something that was easily controlled while multi-tasking. I liked how the screen was easier to read along with the ability to thumb through the interface. However, I am very put off that the pedometer in the fitness app is not fully integrated with Nike+ at this time. I also am not a fan of the latest iTunes interface, so much so that I sought out a different media manager altogether.
Summary: I replaced my 6th-generation Nano with the 7th only because of a catastrophic laundry accident. I can't stand the new one. - I miss the clip very much. Not all my clothes have pockets and it's now very inconvenient to use. - The size and shape make it difficult to pick up without accidentally touching one control or another and doing something you didn't want to do.
Summary: I bought this to replace my 5th Generation iPod Nano after 3 solid years of use, especially at the gym. I loved that Nano and I thought the new one with the Nike Run app built-in and touch screen interface would be a perfect upgrade for me. Unfortunately, the touch screen makes this device extremely fragile, which is an awful quality to have for something I intended to use primarily at the gym.
Summary: Previously I have used my Droid smartphone as my music player. Because of the size of the nano, decided to give it a shot. Have to say I am extremely frustrated and have been unable to complete the setup or syncing of all my existing music to the nano. The instructions are not very helpful and reference features you can't find in the user guide to know what they actually do. My droid phone is looking better and better despite the bigger size of it! Sorry Apple.
Cool product while it lasted. Went kaput after 3 weeks.

Summary: After 3 weeks of working beautifully, my new nano died. Screen went utterly black, and wouldn't respond to attempts to restore factory settings. My prior nanos all lasted at least a year before dying on me -- what a waste, overall. I'll just use my iPhone for music now, despite its clunkiness.
