Affected iPod nanos were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.
Ewan, what bad music is it ? I would only allow good tunes on it !
Yer it is small, liking the radio with the pause button, how cool is that !
A colleague who didn't send theirs off until mid-December has just had an email to say theirs has been dispatched. I am feeling a little Apple neglect here.
I got mine today
Woo hooooo! Cute, isn't it?
has anyone figured out the best/nicest strap or armband yet?
Darrell, like the tramp on chips line... brilliant !
6 weeks and you will have a new one !
Can anyone who's swapped and been for a run with the new one let us know how easy it is to navigate by touch?
I've had my old Nano since 2005 and run something like 5,000 miles with it on my arm, and so out of my eyeline, without a problem.What I like about it (and dislike about the iPod Touch) is that, with the touchwheel, I can easily skip or repeat a track without havinh to see what I'm doing.
I quite like the idea of getting something new for free, but not if it's going to be less user-friendly.
Thanks Funny Hat.
It's also just occurred to me that with the new version I could use the volume, pause and skip controls on the Apple earbuds - which do not work with the Gen 1 version Im using now.
Now I just have to decide whether I want to go six weeks of maraton training with no iPod.
Found this via random google search, and I have a gen 1 that I had from 2007 when I originally started running and switched it to a gen 5 or 7 (the last long and thin one with actual buttons) which I still use. Gen 1 had been sat in a drawer but will now be getting traded for the new one.
Question though, how easy is it to operate a touch screen on your arm band whilst running? With my nike armband I can reach and feel the actual buttons for changing track and pause, but with the little tiny touch screen, will it get fiddly? Will I hit pause instead of next track?! Or will the newer headphones let me pause or cycle tracks (Pause is important for the end of a run or crossing a road...using nike+)
I ran with an iphone using the nike app once and it was a nightmare, had to keep looking down and around to see what I was pressing.
Failing that, I'll just wear the new one as a watch.... Its free so cant moan
