*Which IPOD do you feel has the best responsiveness with the voice UI?
**The Nano definatly is more responsive. I was quite surprised on how well
Rockbox works on it compared with the Video, which by the way works great as
*Do both have the scroll wheel?
**Yes, they both do. They are physically identical except for their size
and where the headphone jacks are located. On the Nano It is on the bottom
right edge of the player compared to the Video which is on the top right.
*Does the scroll wheel move when it is in your pocket?
**No, since I use the cases made by Sena. The leather has a round hole the
same size as the scroll wheel which makes finding the perimeter quite easy.
The case I have has a magnetic flap that covers the scroll wheel. Remember,
the only tactile button on the Nano/Video is the hold switch on the top left
of the player. This unit is very streamline. Without a case I can tell you
it is a bit more of a challenge but definatly doable.
*Do you have any other thoughts on the IPOD with rockbox?
**I am amazed how far it has come since the end of March when I first
installed Rockbox on my Video. This played a big part in my decision to
purchase a Nano as well.
I'm not sure why, but currently the Nano seems to put out more bass when the
EQ is on.
That's all my questions for now! LOL...rocker
Hey Keith, keep them coming!
