I got a chance to fiddle with an iPod Nano today over the course of a strange lunch hour. More about the strangeness in a later post. The Nano felt impossibly small, as they say in the ad copy. For the most part I liked the way it drove. The thing I think would mess me up is the button at the center of the click wheel. On my Mini, the button bumps out above the wheel, so you can really feel for it. The Nano, by contrast, has a smooth flat surface and unless you’re really looking it’s hard to tell where you’re pressing. A simple mod, say affixing a self-adhesive velcro disk or over the middle, ought to fix that. Bottom line, I didn’t feel like I had to have it.
