Japanese blog Macotakara recently unraveled a rumor that Apple is redesigning the iPod Nano. Say goodbye to those cute little Nano watches, this new design is said to be oblong and even include a home button.
The rumors suggest that the design will also sport a rectangular screen and more closely resemble the rest of the iPod/iPhone family. It’s doubtful this new design will actually run and apps, more so run a skimmed down version of iOS like the current generation Nano.
Personally I’m not the biggest fan of the iPod Nano (except using it as a watch). I would much rather have something a bit more tangible that I wasn’t in fear of breaking or losing. It’s quite possible Apple could launch this rumored new design this fall at the new iPhone 5 event.
Only time will tell at this point, but I think it’s highly possible Apple could redesign the Nano given the drastic changes we’ve heard about the purported iPhone 5.
What do you think?
