The key is that is uses a flash memory drive instead of a hard drive, for increased battery life.
For only $200, it renders pretty much all other music players obsolete.
"I just threw away my dell jukebox to get an ipod nano, and wow it is so much better...."
Sally's boyfriend: !&%##! THAT'S AN iPOD NANO!!!

The initial design for this product was the replace the iPod mini, but unfortunately, did not meet the expected sales. The first wave of the ‘nano’ had the choice of either coming in 2G or 4G and featured a colour screen.
It could also be noted that these models are not as fire-retardant as their predecessors, and carry with them the liability of being lost or dissolved in chemical testing.
I would rather consume some ice cream and buy 8 hookers.
