Display screens crack easily on a small number of iPod Nano digital music players, Apple Computer Inc acknowledged on Wednesday, saying it would replace flawed units.

Apple was responding to a flurry of complaints posted to online forums and community sites about faulty screens on the Nano, the tiny music player the company launched earlier this month to much fanfare. Most of the complaints revolved around screen scratches that made the displays difficult to read.

Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said Apple had received few complaints and the only real problem was cracked screens, which would be replaced.

"This is a real but minor issue that involved a vendor quality problem in a small number of units," Neumayr said. "This has affected less than one-tenth of 1 per cent of the total iPod Nano units that we've shipped.
