Seeing as you have only had your iPod nano for 3 months, I would take it back to the store you bought it in and say there is a problem with it and ask if you could pay the extra money and get the 30GB model instead of a refund or straight swap.
Everyone wins, you're laughing, the store gets more money, a win win situation, trust me.
I would drain the battery so it appears not to work and say that it does not stay charged or does not connect to the computer anymore etc...
I have done this a few times with minidisc players and two iPods over the years. It works every time. Enjoy your iPod video

I would hold off a bit and hope that Apple comes out with a true iPod video (with a bigger and wide screen). Of course if you really want the video features really bad you can either install Linux on your iPod and put video player on it or you can try to sell or trade your nano for a video iPod.
