Apple today agreed to a $22.5 million settlement in a class-action suit alleging that the first generation iPod Nano contained a manufacturing or design defect which caused the display to scratch up too easily. The suit alleges that Apple was aware of the defect but purposefully misled consumers by not disclosing this to potential purchasers. As part of the settlement, Apple admits no wrongdoing, and all iPod Nano owners are entitled to 25 bucks.
iPod nano owners who want their share of the loot need to file a claim before June 10, 2009. The requisite forms can be found here.
