At first, I was afraid that I might get an iPod Nano first gen that is not as pristine in condition as a replacement to my iPod Nano 1st gen (Bec they said that they will replace the first gen unit with a refurbished first gen unit also). My unit was well taken care of. The original plastic when the unit was bought was still intact upon surrendering it to the authorized service center and therefore, if they remove the plastic, they will be holding an iPod Nano first gen that's still in top shape, like brand new! Only later did I know that instead of another first generation iPod Nano, they'll be replacing it with a 6th generation iPod Nano without even spending a centavo!
A little bit of history. I didn't buy that unit brand new. I got it second hand from a "relative". I don't like spending a lot on gadgets because I discovered that if I wait, I could get it one way or another, like now and sometimes even for free! I've been wanting that 6th Generation Nano ever since I discovered that it can be turned into a watch!
As per asking the service center, the iPod Nano 6th gen I got won't be covered with a warranty. I checked Apple website and it said otherwise. According to Apple, I am covered until January 15, 2013. Anyway, I would believe Apple more.
|Got the unit wrapped in a static-proof pouch|
|Nano surface still protected with sticker protector|
|Power and volume buttons, flawless!|
|Soon to be a multi-purpose watch!|
|Some of the best straps I've seen so far.|
Do you have an iPod nano first generation hidden somewhere? Dig it up and turn it into a sixth generation iPod nano! Just surrender the unit itself, even without earphones, charger and box.
