After a brief hands on with the iPod nano, here's what we think:

-The nano is small considering its screen. Very light and comfortable to hold. Thinner than even the first generation nano.

-The New UI is very smooth. Animations are a bit slower, but the navigation is as responsive as ever.

-The screen is vibrant and offers a very clear picture.

-Video is surprisingly nice. The picture is sharp and everything is easy to see.

-The scroll wheel still feels a little small, but all in all, its still very responsive and works the way its supposed to.

-The case design is slightly rounded on top, giving it a bit of a 3-D effect.

-Seeing this thing in person makes all the difference. It's really nice when it sits in your hand and you see the screen for yourself.

@bdkennedy1: Agreed... let the sycophants line up for these... I'm waiting for the speed-bump release next year when the iJobs get's Samsung to mass produce 32gb flash chips for him 6 months early. I'd put an iTouchPod in my underwear if it had 64Gb... 8^O

A coworker of mine has a Creative Zen V he's had for about two weeks. I let him play with my 5G iPod for all of about 15 minutes and he was boxing the Zen V up. (I used to be a huge fan of the Zen thanks to it's Linux-friendliness, but since getting my iPod 80gb, there's no looking back).

That being said. I think Apple's putting their users in a tough bind. The price point on the iTouchPod is a bit high, but would be more justifiable with some more storage space in there (or a damn SD car slot so I could cram in as much more as I want). I actually do have my 80gb 5GPod nearly filled between about a dozen ripped DVDs and my insane music collection (1200+ albums). But I'm a media-whore... loser...
