Nano Nano

I was in Ginza yesterday, and I stopped by the Apple Store to get my iBook fixed (the right speaker crackles), which of course gave me a chance to play around with the new iPod nano. The first thing you notice is how unbelievably small and light it is, even more so than the images I’d seen online let on. And even though they seemed to have plenty in stock, every box I saw was the 2GB model, with no 4GB model in sight, which is not a huge surprise.

TIME has posted this story on how the nano came to be.
