Q: Will the Nike+ only work with the iPod nano, or will it work with the other, full-size iPod models?

- Anonymous

A: The Nike+iPod Sport Kit is only compatible with the first- and second-generation iPod nano models. Apple has likely chosen to deliberately make the full size iPod incompatible due to its more vulnerable nature under heavy activity; the iPod nano’s solid-state memory has no moving parts and is easily able to handle the jostling motions of a jog, but full size iPods have a complicated hard drive mechanism that is more susceptible to damage due to motion. For serious joggers, the iPod nano is simply the safer choice.
