Couldn't find it in the tech specs. Does the Nano also support Wifi? Could I install Skype on it and make calls?

    The reason you can't find it in the specs is because the Nano doesn't have WiFi.

    In that case, does iPod touch have radio? Or is it only Nano?

    The only iPod with an FM radio at this time is the 5th gen Nano.

    Ok, thanks. Same old disappointing Apple releases -- give features 1, 2, 3 in Product A and 1, 2, 5, 6 in Product B...so people have to buy both products.

    It's called product differentiation. Not everyone wants every feature. If Apple put every feature in every iPod, you can be assured that there would be lots of people complaining about feature bloat.

    Personally, I can't figure out why I would want to listen to FM radio on an iPod. For me, the whole point of having something like an iPod is so I don't have to deal with commercials, annoying announcers, and corporate playlists.

    Normally I would agree with you Meg, FM radio in my area is like a vast, noisy wasteland. But the gym I work out at broadcasts the sound over various FM frequencies. The FM headset I used was rotted out (okay, I sweat. A lot), and I needed a small FM radio if I wanted to hear the college football announcers. or Meredith Viera on millionaire. The 5th Generation Nano came just at the right time although more often I use it with music while working out.

    Sorry, deggie, but that sounds, to me, like even more reason not to have FM! I have to turn the television off on the treadmill or my pace just goes to heck. But, that's just another arugement for different products.

    But it's sooooo cute!
