Mossberg: ‘nano owners must buy and use a case’

Updated

In his Q&A column, Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal discusses the problem of scratches on the iPod nano.

“If I were reviewing the nano today, I would still call it ‘the best combination of beauty and functionality of any music player I’ve tested,’ as I did in my review. But I would include a strong, prominent, warning that it scratches too easily in normal usage,” Mossberg writes. “After just under a month of daily use, my own nano is badly scratched, and looks beat up when viewed at an angle… my recommendation now is that nano owners must buy and use a case for the device.”
