The iPod nano has become very popular with the gym crowd. It’s light, doesn’t skip, and is inexpensive enough that if it gets stolen, it’s not the end of the world. The bad news is, many gyms are banning the new version, due to the camera. Seems that recording devices in general are verboten in gym locker rooms, and something small and concealable like an iPod nano is exactly what they are trying to avoid.

So should Apple make a nano without a camera? The features of the new version make it perfect except for that pesky camera. Perhaps gyms could allow you to check your nano before you go into the locker room, and then pick it up on the way out. One word of warning, if you do smuggle your nano in, please don’t forget that there is ‘good naked’ and ‘bad naked’. Oh, and don’t buy the yellow one.

I'd think a camera on a music player is a bit unnecessary in the first place, considering most people have camera phones these days.

Weird that Apple placed a camera on the Nano instead of the Touch D:

Exactly.

Your selling point should be the music player's music playing abilities, how well it performs, and etc. Not how you can now take pictures and make videos with it... I mean come on now. You're an idiot for buying it just because it has a camera. Get a fricken Camera, you already have one probably.

Yeah, same here. It's not necessary in my opinion.

I bought one because I'm a gadget freak. I knew the cam was not great (i have an HD cam for that) but the small size won me over.

After owning it for a few days I have to say it rocks as a music player. The camera is basically junk compared to any of the flip cams and the mic sucks but it will work to catch that 'Kodak moment'. Also the internal speaker is a joke for playing music.

In my opinion it does one thing amazingly well and that's being an iPod. Not a video cam, audio recorder, or pedometer.

Some other things that I like is the DVR style radio, the tiny size, and the fact that it has a few 3D games on it. I wonder if Apple is going to let dev's make apps for it because it can obviously do some cool things.
