Best Answer

The iPod Nano was invented to make the iPod smaller and lighter, thus more portable, to make it better, by using a flash drive instead of a small hard disk. It also dealt blows to its competitors, like creative, Samsung, sony etc. It was also to boost apple's strangle hold on the MP3 player market. However, it is reportedly not very good, the screen being easily scratched when it was first out on the market.
