Hubby and I love to listen to music when we go walking or exercising. We used to have a radio attached to our belt. But when ipod nano came out of the market, we decided to buy one for it is lighter, smaller and nicer :-). iPod nano is like an investment to us since it isn't cheap. And so we looked for ipod nano cases, too! Good thing we purchased one; now our ipod nano is protected and still looks new considering it is already three years ago since we bought it. On the other hand, I just bought an ipod shuffle for my niece.; I wonder it they will make a case for it, too!
