    Both players have built-in batteries. It's about the size. The Nano is definitively smaller. Due to the playlisting flexibility of iTunes (superior to all else in this respect) you can pack music quite intelligently into a limited space like 4Gb, even if you have a large library. The iPod is pretty portable, but the Nano is so much more so.

    1 Yes, the 20Gb iPod holds five times the songs, but the nano is five times smaller physically.
    2 Yes, screen problems (scratching) have been reported anecdotally in the US with the nano. No-one I know with a nano has seen this yet. On the other hand, there is also anecdotal evidence to say that the nano itself is extremely difficult to damage.
    3 Yes, you can send either iPod to have a battery replaced, however you can do the job easily yourself for a fraction of the cost Apple charges. They both use Li-Ion batteries, as does every other DAP on the market, so the concern is not unique.
