My 15-year-old summed up her iPod Nano experience like this: "I'm only using it 'cause it's free." (Recall I had been given the Nano as a corporate gift; I continue to prefer the Creative Zen Micro I bought a year ago.)
+ She likes the capacity. At 2GB, the Nano holds 16x more music than her first MP3 player.
+ She likes the kewl factor. The iPod is a requirement for being cool among friends.
- She doesn't like that it lacks replaceable batteries. She'll be travelling to Korea next month and doesn't think the Nano will last the plane trip, and wonders where she'll recharge it (it needs to be hooked up to a computer to recharge through the USB cable.) I've suggested that she could take my Zen Micro, which has replaceable batteries _and_ a wall charger.
- She doesn't like that a wall charger is $57 (here in Canada, incl. tax).
- She doesn't like that it lacks an FM tuner, as does her previous MP3 player.
- She doesn't like that the front plastic scratches to easily, and that the back's chrome-like metal smudges to easily.
- She doesn't like that it has locked up twice already in just one month.
- She finds that the battery doesn't last very long; her two-year-old Samsung 128MB MP3 player lasts longer on a single AAA battery.
