Problems with the recently launched iPod Nano are emerging as owners complain of broken or scratched screens.
The smaller version of the popular iPod was unveiled at the beginning of September to much fanfare and delight at its sleek design.
Its delicacy was heralded as a design break-through.
But some fans are beginning to question whether the machine is too fragile for everyday use.
Owners are complaining about cracked, scratched or inexplicably failing screens, sometimes within hours of buying the machine.
