Our friends over at Gizmodo recently compiled a list of reasons on why the iPod Shuffle beats the Nano. We’ve selected two of our favorites after the jump. Product page. What are your thoughts?

3. It’s tiny. It’s hard to imagine just how small the shuffle is until you’ve held one in your hand. It’s literally the size of a postage stamp.
