But now the screen is upside down when you flip it up to look at it!!

For the nano at least they should have gotten it right because of Apple placement of the headphones on the bottom….

sigh

I was thinking the same thing.  They are making them upside down for the nano.  Didn’t they get the memo?

You’re right. The unit should be the other way round. And more importantly…the snaps should be at the top. The way its designed I can see my 60GB dropping out the trap door on the bottom of the case. If the snaps came open, (best case) I’d get to see my iPod splatter all over the ground. If I wasn’t listening to it, (worst case) it would bale out somewhere and I wouldn’t notice until I had walked miles away. Bad bad bad design.

No, no, no, you’ve all got it wrong; this layout allows Mini Me to control your iPod nano so you don’t have to. I just wonder whether is has a built-in 1/4 inch steel plate backing to prevent your nano from being snapped in half when you sit on it?

I looked up their web site and found small photo with three iPods on the top page. It’s really small but the smallest one I can see on the right is upside down. I guess this is for the nano. Probably the one we saw on the news was a prototype and the real product would be upside down so it won’t be upside down when you use it.
