Apple admit iPod Nano problem

If yours is one of the faulty batch, you can get it replaced...

Apple have recalled a number of iPod Nanos after admitting there was a problem with a batch.

The latest addition to the iPod family has been dubbed ‘impossibly small’ in its ad campaign, but many customers reckon it is just that, finding the pencil-thin model to be vulnerable to cracks.

Disgruntled customer Matthew Peterson set up a website to collate complaints, and received 30 emails per hour, before closing down the site when the manufacturer admitted there was a problem, reports the BBC.

The electronics giant is offering replacements on the damaged batch, which they put at less than a tenth of 1% of all Nanos shipped.

But Apple maintain that it was a specific fault with that batch, rather than a design flaw with the Nano itself.

A spokeswoman told the BBC: “The iPod Nano is made from the same high quality polycarbonate plastic as the very popular fourth generation iPod.

“If customers are concerned about scratching we suggest they use one of the many iPod Nano cases becoming available.”
