Apple to warn of iPod Nano Problems

After prodding from the Japanese government, Apple Inc. will post prominent notices on its website warning some iPod Nano music players in Japan may overheat.

Sixty-one cases of batteries overheating have been reported in first-generation iPod Nano machines sold in 2005 and 2006, according to Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

Some units were warped by the heat that caused minor burns when people touched them, but no serious injuries or damage have been reported, it said.
