From Mr David Sherwell
SIR No doubt others will ha* pointed out your paper's confusions on the manufacturer and capabilities of the iPod Nano (Report and leading article, March 10). In case this has not happened: First, the Queen may well own an iPod Mini; the Pope, however, has a Nano because the Mini is no longer in production.
Second, the iPod is manufactured by Apple, not Sony as you state in your report.
Third, the ilkx1 Nano is more than capable of storing a Bruckner symphony. In fact, even the humble two gigabyte Nano will hold a goodly number of his symphonies, as well as a mix of choral music and audio books. Photos, too, can be stored in the little wonder.
Fourth, the iPod Nano is smaller and lighter than the video-capable 60 gigabyte iPod you recommend for Pope Benedict who, I'm sure, has more important issues to deal with than listening to the several days' worth of music and speech afforded by the bigger model.
Yours faithfully. DAVID SHERWELL Manchester
