This will surprise some and especially Johann but I am not a fan. Now the mini at 4 and 6gb was a seperate DAP from the larger I-Pod in both style and battery life. Sound quality I am certain will be no different with the nano, however to me this just looks like a poor man equivalent of the larger i-pod photo. With only 2gb and 4gb it has less capacity but it seem as though it will be a more expensive player just because of its colour screen. The battery life on this is worse than my mini (which can get 20 hours) so I am very dissapointed in this device. They should have had an 8gb or a 10gb device and start getting the battery life sorted, the mini is fine but any criticism of the other players for battery life is justified.
