I hesitated when buying this as many reviewers called it a glorified shuffle and called it too expensive. I pulled the trigger anyways and am glad I did. I think it's worth the extra money over a shuffle. I love the screen, the memory, the battery life, the features and the size. The clip is useful too. Also glad the unit works with the 30 pin connector accessories I already have from an older nano. I think it's better than a glorified shuffle, it's the best nano yet. If you want the camera and additional features, get a touch, but it won't be nearly as compact and portable if you are into working out with it.
Thank you Apple for another amazing Nano! I too was not sure about purchasing the new Nano after reading so many negative reviews, but I'm glad I took the chance. This thing is great! I was concerned about the battery life after I read that there was no off switch. No need, It seems to have about the same battery life as my 5th gen Nano. As far as the touch screen goes, It is sharp and very responsive. I do not miss any of the features they removed from gen. 5. To thoes of you who said that you can't drive and play your music, I say hit the sleep/wake button and shake to shuffle. It's as easy as that. I want a simple device that has great sound quality to play my music collection on and I would say this is the best Nano from Apple so far. Buy it and enjoy!
