Apple's new iPod nano may have metal housing

Posted on Tuesday, July 11 2006 @ 00:18:13 CEST by

To reduce the iPod nano's susceptibility to scratches, Apple has been experimenting with aluminum anodized enclosures similar to those used on the iPod mini.
In what Apple chief executive Steve Jobs called a major gamble, the company last September did away with its aluminum enclosed iPod mini, replacing the player with the ulta-thin polycarbonate-coated iPod nano.

However, the nano almost immediately faced intense scrutiny after a significant number of users began to complain that the front surface of their players easily became scratched or marred during ordinary use. Several lawsuits were later filed against Apple as a result of the scratches.

According to sources, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is so far believed to have committed to the transition away from the nano's polycarbonate-coated shell and towards aluminum enclosures. The new enclosures are expected to debut in color variations similar to those used with the iPod mini, these sources added.
More details over at Apple Insider.
