The New Nano vs. Sansa View

The new iPod nano was released today. And no, I don't know much about it other than it's taller, has a bigger screen and plays movies in landscape mode.All great things, to be sure. Price points are $149 and $199 for the 8GB and 16GB models. The screen is 2" (which doesn't seem that much bigger to me, maybe I'm missing something). I guess you can play games on it too.Meanwhile, here's my Sansa View. The 8GB model was $149 last year when I bought it. It doesn't have games, or a calendar. But you can turn it on its side to watch movies. The screen is 2.8 inches (almost 1/2 again as big as the nano). I upgraded mine to 16 GB by adding a memory card. That's right. The view is expandable. And it has an FM radio. And a voice recorder.

In short, I'm not going to rush out to by a new iPod Nano any time soon (but I'm guessing my son will want one).

And that concludes today's completely random post.
