Apple announces new iPod nano, $149 for 16 GB (updated)
Apple has reinvented the iPod nano. The seventh-generation model bears almost no resemblance to its iPod shuffle-sized predecessor. Instead, its large, widescreen, touchscreen display and tiny home button are more evocative of a tinier version of the iPod touch.
The iPod nano is 5.4 mm thick, 38 percent thinner than the previous nano. It has a 2.5-inch multitouch display, and in addition to music you can look at photos and, in a re-introduced feature, videos.
The iPod nano now has built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming and the new Lightning dock connector. The device has built-in fitness and pedometer functions, so no extra accessories are needed for Nike+.
The iPod nano's battery offers up to 30 hours of music playback, the best of any nano so far.
The nano comes in silver, black, purple, green, blue, yellow and red.
Update: The new iPod nano will be 16 GB for $149 and will be on sale in October.
