Following growing complaints and lawsuits over the scratch-prone iPod Nano, Apple has begun to ship its little beast of an mp3 player in protective covers to help prevent scratches on its mp3 device while in shipment, where the company says much of the scratching occurs.
According to posts made Thursday and Friday on several iPod fan sites, the iPod Nano now includes a white fabric and plastic slipcover that resembles the one shipping with the new iPod video. Two Apple customer service representatives confirmed that the iPod Nano now ships with a cover. "I'd call it more of a dustcover than a case," said one. "It's very much like what's included with the video iPod," said another.
This action is the first of what is expected to be growing responses to the heavy criticisms and large lawsuits in action against Apple over its iPod Nano. Although the corporate office has yet to comment officially on the topic, it is needless to say that the company is indeed taking the complaints seriously.
