With Apple’s iPod nano only out in the world for a week, it may be a bit early for many users to be considering repair and support services that aren’t covered under warranty, but Olathe, Kan.-based iPodResQ isn’t wasting time. iPodResQ
has announced support
for the new digital music player.
iPodResQ president Ryan Arter said that the LCDs on the iPod nano seem particularly prone to damage. “In fact, we received an LCD repair order the day after the nanos were released, and we are ready for the initial blast of repairs that always comes shortly after the announcement of a new iPod,” said Arter in a statement.
iPodResQ offers a flat-rate replacement for broken iPod nano LCDs for US$99, for example. That price includes three way shipping — the company sends customers in the continental U.S. an “iBox” shipping container via overnight courier; it’s shipped back overnight; and iPodResQ will install a new LCD the same day it’s received. The company said that other repairs are also available.
