iPod Nano?

Any thoughts on the iPod Nano? I was thinking of getting one to replace my old first generation 5GB iPod . . I'm probably the only person left in the world who still has one that works Mostly to use in the car, but iPods have always had heat issues; they get messed up if you leave it in the car at extreme temps. Wonder how these new ones fare in that regard. I hate taking so much crap with me when I get out of the car . . cellphone, keys, iPod, etc. At least these Nano's are much smaller.

Yeah, I've only dropped it once so far, from about 2 feet. It hit the ground, case flew off, battery flew off, i thought for sure i'd broken it. If you're clumsey, do not get a razr. If you can hold on to it, they're awesome phones.

Believe it or not still use my 1st Gen 5gb iPod, and I was thinking of getting one as a replacement too, but its so damn small I would be afraid I would break it. But I think its a pretty cool ida.

See, there are only certain types of songs that I like to listen to in my car, so the 4GB is more than plenty for me. I like the size; I hate carrying bulky things in my pockets. And I think I can do more with the Nano as far as custom mounting in the car.
