iPod nano: Cheaper, more features, and a video camera too!


Apple appears to be aiming right at the Flip market with its release of the updated iPod nano today. A quick rundown includes:
  • Storage capacity: 8GB for $149USD, 16GB for $179USD.
  • 2.2-inch color display. 240-by-376-pixel resolution at 204 pixels per inch.
  • Battery: 24 hour playback for audio, 5 hours for video
  • Video camera. H.264 VGA video, 640 by 480 pixels, up to 30 frames per second with AAC audio. Real-time special effects include: Sepia, Black and White, X-Ray, Film Grain, Thermal, Security Cam, Cyborg, Bulge, Kaleido, Motion Blur, Mirror, Light Tunnel, Dent, Stretch, and Twirl
  • FM radio featuring iTunes tagging and live pausing (for those who still like to listen to Delilah.)
  • Pedometer and accelormeter
  • Built-in mic and speaker with voice memos
  • Genius features
  • Voice Over kit featuring a multiple number of languages
  • Variety of colors, but two of those colors -- yellow and red -- are in-store only.
  • Environmental features: Arsenic-free glass, BFR-free, Mercury-free, PVC-free
We will have an in-depth look at the nano later today, as I'm actually headed out to the Apple Store to get one to replace my aging, dying iPod 5.5G.

[For those who are asking -- as far as we can tell from the spec, the iPod nano will not shoot still pictures, only video. We'll be able to confirm this later today.]
