iPod nano gets small upgrade, adds camera

By on


Apple has announced that the iPod nano will get a small tweak in its design, in addition with a new camera, that would make it in competition with the Flip Mino; along with a slew of new features that would allow it to hold its dominance as the “most popular music player” to date.

The new iPod nano will have a larger 2.2-inch display protected in a polish aluminium and glass enclosure;  and will feature a built-in FM radio with live pause. As of now, we do not know if this would be DAB+ compatible, or even HD Radio compatible, to compete with the Zune HD. The nano will also include a pedometer, keeping track of your workout, track your steps and the calories burned.

The biggest new feature, however, is the camera. No word on its megapixels, but it will allow a person to shoot in portrait and landscape, and will be able upload them on YouTube, MobileMe, Facebook or via email. It will come with special real-time effects like Thermal, Film Grain, Kaleido and X-Ray. Out of all the iPod products, this one will only have the camera.

It will cost $199 for the 8GB model, and $249 for the 16GB model. It will also come in nine colours, like its predecessor.
