So it seems that earlier rumors suggesting an iPod nano refresh were pretty accurate as Apple has taken the wraps off their new iPod nano. If anything we can’t help but feel that it looks like a mini iPhone, and that’s a good thing given the iPhone’s rather iconic design. It also measures 5.4mm thin, making this the thinnest iPod nano Apple has ever created. It sports a 2.5″ multitouch display on the front and will have physical controls on its side for Play, Pause, Forward and/or Back. It will also feature video playback capabilities, but given the 2.5″ display, we’re not sure if you will enjoy watching full length movies on it. However given that Apple has also revealed that the iPod nano will come with fitness apps and a pedometer built-in, perhaps video playback capabilities can be used for playing back some workout ideas at the gym, but really, it’s left to your discretion.
The new iPod nano will also come with Bluetooth connectivity, a much asked-for feature which will now allow it to pair with Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth headsets. Available in seven different colors, Apple is also boasting that the latest iPod nano will sport the longest battery life compared to its siblings and will be priced at $149 for the 16GB model and will be available in October. So, any takers? [Product page]
