Yep, they really are that easy to scratch, it seems.

    my regular ipod (second-gen) also got fairly scratched up almost right away. i wonder if the nano is really that much worse, or it just happens to be more noticeable because it is black.

    yeah, I think it’s also really noticeable because it’s brand new and so smooth! however, I wasn’t expecting contact with a (smooth, polished, pine) table would scratch it — it really doesn’t take much.

    hey, an update.

    So I bought http://www.theinvisibleshield.com/ based on Engadget comments. It was quite hair-raising to apply, but has stopped any further scratching. However the iPod certainly doesn’t look as cool as it did beforehand; the surface is a little more “plasticky” looking. Shame.

    It’s a definite issue with the product, no matter what Apple’s PR hacks say…
