Finally got it
Well After waiting nearly a month it finally turned up, but is infact a 2MB Ipod Nano, rather than the originally advertised mini ( and no you still can't have it Bob ).
On first impressions it is quite neat,even the packaging it comes in, apart from the rather well publicised problem of being very easy to scratch, just by looking at it too hard. It appears to be relatively simple to use, though most of the additional 'features' will probably not get used it is quite a neat little package and the screen resolution is quite good for displaying pictures.
My main use for it will probably be plugging it into the car stereo on long journeys. I bought a cd walkman for that purpose years ago, but it was never particularly practical so rarely used it.
Now I just neeed to finish converting all my CDs to MP3, I'm only about halfway through so far and already used up ~5GB on my laptop.
