Apple announces redesigned iPod Nano
We passed along rumors of a new iPod Nano last week, and Apple has made it official today, launching a completely redesigned Nano complete with a 2.5” widescreen display with Multi-Touch. Bluetooth is coming in the new Nano, as well as an FM radio tuner (with a DVR-like “live pause” ability). Apple is also including a built-in pedometer and fitness tracking software for those of you who want to only carry one device while jogging.

Of course it wouldn’t be a good Nano launch without it shipping in a myriad of colors, and fans of the diminutive PMP won’t be disappointed, as the Nano will ship in 7 different highly saturated colors (for those of you Plain Jane’s out there, black and silver are still options). The new iPod Nano will sell for $149 and be available in October.

That's because the Lumia screen looks like the one on the 4th Gen iPod Nano from 2008!

I smell a law suit and patent infringement from Nokia's legal department. I have a Nokia Lumia 900 and these new Apple ipod nano's look awfully familiar!! I am about to bring it to Nokia's attention on facebook!! F-A-I-L APPLE, big F-A-I-L Nothing that was introduced today is new is all rehash ideas!! I didn't even see NFC technology in Iphone 5 this was just BRUTAL!!

How? The old iPod nano from a fee years ago looks just like this. This doesn't even look like a lumia. Quit trying to cause problems.

Look at the 4th Generation iPod Nano, which also contained the same glass screen bezel w/rounded corners on top of a colored body - long before the Lumia was designed... So who copied who now?

Was Apple inspired by the N9/Lumia? Because that's exactly what the new iPod Nano looks like.

Or maybe by the 4th Gen iPod Nano, which was out long before the Lumia.

They screwed up the nano, but the iPod touch is pretty cool.

Da fu** is this? If I wanted an Ipod touch, I would buy one. I ride a motorcycle, work out, and occasionally use this while working outside. I need damn buttons. I've had to stick to my 2nd gen nano because everything since the buttons has been trash.

oh c'mon, I would like a 32GB option as I dont want to carry a larger player. I couldn't care less about video playback but find the larger touch screen good for music management.

This looks horendously cheap. The UI is atrocious and not even related to the look of the other iOS devices. The new Touch looks great, but they really fumbled the design of the Nano.

Everyone compares with Lumia. Too recent.

Check the Samsung YP-P2 mp3 player... Hope it's patented...
