[This was supposed to be posted about a month ago...my bad.]
Remember when I wrote this post about sending my 1st generation iPod Nano in so Apple could replace it? Well, my new Nano came, and quicker than I expected.
The annoying bit about the whole process was that a signature was required to receive the packages. I understand why it was necessary (I don't want my neighbors stealing my packages off my porch!) but it made it almost impossible to pick the package up. The FedEx guy decided that he would come to drop off the packages at noon each day, when NO ONE was home, and couldn't leave them without my signature. I ended up having to drive forty-five minutes away to pick up the package at a FedEx location.
I was surprised that the Nano didn't come in any special packaging. The AppleCare Service letter basically said "here ya go" and talked about the 90-day warranty of the Nano. But other than that, where's the headphones? Where's the USB adapter? I shouldn't complain, though: I have both of those accessories already, and I got a new Nano for free!
Shockingly, the Nano turned on right away and had almost a full battery. Apple's website says it has a 24 hour battery life, which is amazing! Also, the graphics are stunning, especially for such a small screen. The Nano I was given is silver (I couldn't choose the color) and has a capacity of 8GB, twice the amount of the Nano I sent in.
I can't wait to play around with it more and tell you all what I think of it.
