    I like it. This is what I want for exercising and activity. I'll probably eventually get one, but another iPod is WAY down on the priority list of expenditures.




    I actually DO like it, and might buy one. I have the 60 now because I use it for other things as well.

    That would be tooooo kewl.



    Frankly, I think Moto underdesigned this thing. Compared to the Razr, this phone looks VERY plain.

    I like everything about it except the storage space... 4gig just isn't enough for me...



    Ah well... I'll just have to wait untill they make a 6gig model.

    I see "Apple iPod AV Cable" listed under the iPod nano Cables & Docks accessories bit.



    No s-video on the dock though...



    I think I'd have preferred a colour iPod mini with 8GB, at least then it would seem that the storage on the smaller iPods would be catching up with the size of my library (around 14GB) and one day a small iPod could replace my 40GB iPod. It now seems that they'll just keep shrinking the small iPod range...

    I don't see why they had to kill off the iPod mini though. They could have had one with a color screen and 10GB hard drive out in time for the holidays. It would have made a great mid-range iPod. Just one model in five colors sitting between the iPod nano and the iPod. So what happened to the Shuffle price drops?



    I can't wait until they unveil the Mac nano!

    The metallic look of the minis did have a great appeal. They were both masculine and feminine depending on the color. I think ALOT of people of all ages will miss them.



    But the nanos are good too. But the minis were apples BEST selling ipods...so it should be interesting to see the reaction.

    I'm wondering if the next iPod update will be close to the iPod Mini size? The new notebook size hard drives recently announced are smaller, lighter, and less power hungry, so the new iPod could look like the iPod Mini. Then again, maybe the iPod mini will be "re-released" with an 8GB drive at a similar price to the Nano. Options, options, so many options!



    melgross - admit it - you're a typical engineer (which I resemble) that always looks at what could have been. Perfection for one is left-field to another. Besides, the perfect one will never come out because there is something better around the corner. Designing stops, and production begins, then the next model gets the further improvements.

    how high (in GB's) do you reckon they will go WITH the nano ipod, can you see it replacing the regular ipod ? maybe a slightly large one with 20gb - 80gb ?

    An 8GB Hd is as large as they could have gone. That's the largest 1" drive announced.



    I agree about not killing it off. The Mini was a jewel. Actually one of the most beautiful devices I've ever seen. Esp. in green. The most popular color.



    I think that they should have kept one and made it an 8.

    Who says you can't?



    What I'm sure you can't use is the iPod wired remote.

    Apparently you can use Firewire to charge but not to sync. I suppose that means using the dock. It's the same connector.
