Apple announces new iPod Nano

Apple yesterday confirmed the rumours surrounding the new iPod Nano, and showed it off in all its glory. The new device boasts an all aluminium case with a glass display and has styling reminiscent of the 2nd generation unit.

The new iPod Nano has also seen a memory increase and will now be available in 8GB and 16GB versions. Along with the new styling, the Nano adds more colour variations, with nine different colours in total and boasts a host of new features.

New features include a mode called ‘Genius’ that can automatically find similar songs in your music library and put them together on one playlist. The new Nano has a built in accelerometer so the display is rotated when it is placed on its side and has a shake to shuffle movement for a little unpredictability.

Picture and video playback are still incorporated, as well as mini games so you can play whilst listening to your favourite tunes.

The new iPod Nano is available for pre-order now and will be released on the 16th September. The 8GB version will retail at £109 and the 16GB at £149.
