Weakness: The back of it scratches easily.
I have never had an ipod or ipod nano, but a lot of my friends have it and they let me use it sometimes. All the times that I have used one it seemed so cool.For Christmas, I have begged my mom for one , she says she will get me an ipod nano black.

One of the best iPods so far
Strengths: Very lightweight. Screen is small, but not too small.
Weakness: The back scraches easily so get a case for it.
I had a 2nd Generation Nano that I lost, so I got this to replace it. I have had it for about two months and have loved it. It is very compact and the screen is the right size to watch a personal movie. I would highly recomend it to runners because it is very lightweight and you can get a arm-band so you can listen to it while you run.

Good, small ipod
Strengths: Battery life improvements, decent navigation, quick response, good sound quality
Weakness: Pricey, does not come with wall charger, no belt clip
The small form factor of this ipod is both good and bad. I'm a tall guy, so it's sometimes awkward using the scroll wheel. I could find no major problems yet with the basic operation of this 3rd gen Nano, although I've had issues with my older ipod (mainly battery and crashing issues) so I'm hoping this one holds up. Battery life on this thing is much better than my older ipod. Audio and video...

The small form factor of this ipod is both good and bad. I'm a tall guy, so it's sometimes awkward using the scroll wheel.
I could find no major problems yet with the basic operation of this 3rd gen Nano, although I've had issues with my older ipod (mainly battery and crashing issues) so I'm hoping this one holds up. Battery life on this thing is much better than my older ipod.
Audio and video quality are acceptable for me on an ipod this size.
I did not like the lack of a belt clip, although I never owned a Nano so perhaps they never had belt clips. I think the Ipod mini had them, and I guess you can buy a hard case with a clip if you want one.
I wish ipods still came with a wall a/c adapter charger. My old ipod came with it and they are a great help so you don't have to charge your ipod with your PC. These things are expensive as well when you buy the Apple brand a/c adapter separately.

Apple iPod Nano 3rd Generation 8GB Black
Strengths: Looks better then the previous Nano and has a bigger screen.
Weakness: The menu is somewhat hard to get use to.
This 3rd generation iPod Nano is small and sleek. It has the same solid feel as previous iPods but refined into a sleeker smaller design. The 8GB of space is pretty great too! The only quark I have with the iPod Nano is that the font is very small and could be a little bigger, easier to read. A nice added feature if you get the iPod from Apple is you can have them engrave whatever you want on the...

This 3rd generation iPod Nano is small and sleek. It has the same solid feel as previous iPods but refined into a sleeker smaller design. The 8GB of space is pretty great too! The only quark I have with the iPod Nano is that the font is very small and could be a little bigger, easier to read. A nice added feature if you get the iPod from Apple is you can have them engrave whatever you want on the backside of your iPod, a nice personal touch. And I also recommend getting the Apple Care extended warranty.
