The iPod Nano has received an update! It now comes in nine different colors, all with a glossy finish, reduced prices ($149 US for 8GB; $179 for 16GB), a new, integrated video camera (capable of taking still images as well as video) with effects, microphone, 2.2 inch screen, FM-Radio with tagging and live pause, Nike+iPod Support, as well as built-in speakers.
Apple has sent out invitations to their “Rock and Roll” event scheduled for September 9. The image above was included int he invitation. Most people would probably recognize the lyrics written on the invite to be a song by the Rolling Stones.
In the past, when Apple hosts this music themed event, they normally announce a new iPod version whether it be a new Shuffle, Nano, or iTouch. Recently, there have been news of resellers having a drop in stock volume for their iPods as well as news that Apple with discontinue all iPod SKUs (stock-keeping unit). Could this mean a fresh new face for the ever so popular iPods? Additionally, there has been reports (as well as pictures) of a new iPod Touch 3G having a camera as well as a microphone. No one knows for sure if this is fact or fiction but the reported pictures did seem believable. With this news, Apple might be releasing yet another iPod Touch (nearly one per year).
