Well, looks like Apple's updating their iPod starting lineup—welcome the iPod nano (and wave goodbye to the mini, which is now missing from Apple's page after they announced it going south earlier today). The 3.5 x 1.6 x 0.27-inch device will feature 500 song/2GB and 1,000 song/4GB capacities, a 1.5-inch color display, and, of course, a click wheel, which appears to have a drastically larger center button. If you're willing to ignore the fact that the headphone jack is located on the bottom of the device (sigh), you'll be otherwise rewarded with a device that's no more than 62% the size of the once diminutive iPod mini; it weighs 1.5 ounces (42 grams), has a maximum of 14 hours battery life, will come in black (as well as iPod white), and includes a few new niceties such as a nighttime inverse screen mode. Expect it to have a $199 and $249 pricetag; dock ($29) not included, and new lanyard headphones will be available for $39.
