I second the above when I got my Nano I received 6 rubber skins for the
player and they are great. They put a raised area over the select button
and have an easy to find depressed area for the wheel and easy to feel bumps
for the four buttons located on the wheel, so I find it very easy to use the
Nano and would encourage anyone that does not need the recording or radio
functionality to grab a Nano if they can find one.
