APPLE "ONE MORE THING" EVENT, SAN JOSE—October 12, 2005—Apple® today introduced the iPod® diamond nano, an update to its revolutionary full-featured iPod nano. The iPod diamond nano features an ultra-portable, lightweight design with a gorgeous color screen, a micro-thin scratch resistant diamond shield, Apple’s patent pending Click Wheel and the ability to hold 1,000 songs or 25,000 photos. iPod diamond nano works seamlessly with the iTunes® Music Store, the world’s number one digital music service. The iPod diamond nano is available immediately in a 4GB model priced at just $2499 and a 2GB model priced at just $1999, with both models available in stunning white or black diamond designs.
“iPod diamond nano is the biggest revolution since the iPod nano,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPod diamond nano is a full-featured iPod in an impossibly small size, and is completely impervious to scratching. Diamonds are the hardest substance known to man. Now they are part of the iPod revolution."
iPod diamond nano is the perfect combination of innovative design, storage capacity and ease of use. Thinner than a standard #2 pencil and weighing only 1.5 ounces, iPod diamond nano comes in two models—the 4GB iPod nano holds up to 1,000 songs and the 2GB iPod nano holds up to 500 songs. iPod diamond nano features Apple’s innovative Click Wheel for precise, one-handed navigation, and its ultra-portable design fits into even the smallest pocket making it easy to take iPod nano to the gym, in the car, traveling, commuting or anywhere you go. The diamond hard exterior makes the iPod diamond nano the most scratch-resistant iPod ever.
The most fashionable and wearable iPod ever, the iPod diamond nano features optional accessories including lanyard headphones, which integrate the headphone cables into the lanyard, so users can wear their iPod nano around their neck without dangling headphone cables. Optional armbands available in gray, pink, blue, red and green allow users to wear their iPod nano as the ultimate fashion and sports accessory.

You have me laughing pretty hard over your post . Obviously it is real. I mean come on, this is the only way that ANY iPod could be fully scratch proof right? Apple doesn't want to be known as the company who made products that scratch easily now do they?
I already put my order in for 5 of them. I mean, Christmas is around the corner, you better get your order in quickly before Apple runs out of them at those prices
