New iPod nano with built-in video camera.

Byline: (Staff Writer)

Apple has brought the new iPod nano to the market, adding a video camera, mic and speaker to the music player.

"Music lovers can now shoot video wherever they are, view it on their iPod nano and use their computers to easily transfer their videos to YouTube," said Apple.

According to the blurb, the new iPod nano features a 2.2-inch colour display ( meaning the screen, presumably). iPod nano also features a built-in FM radio with live pause and iTunes Tagging, as well as, rather curiously, a built-in pedometer. The new iPod nano is available in an 8GB model and a 16GB model, and comes in eight "brilliant" colours including silver, black, purple, blue, green, orange, yellow, and pink.

"iPod nano is the world's most popular music player with over 100 million sold," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "And now we've added a video camera to its incredibly thin design, without any additional cost to the user."

"iPod nano features a larger 2.2-inch display for easier navigating, enjoying album art, or shooting and viewing video clips. iPod nano is ultra-portable so users can shoot video wherever they are, in either portrait or landscape. iPod nano customers can share videos instantly with friends using its display and speaker, or sync with a Mac or PC and share them on YouTube, MobileMe, Facebook or via email. iPod nano can even shoot videos with fun real-time effects such as Thermal, Film Grain, Kaleido and X-Ray," a press release said.

iPod nano now has a built-in FM radio with live pause and iTunes Tagging. Live pause lets iPod nano users pause and resume playing their favorite FM radio shows. iTunes Tagging is handy when users hear a song they like, they can simply tag it, and then preview and purchase that song when they sync to iTunes.

"iPod nano also features Genius Mixes, which automatically creates up to 12 endless mixes of songs from your iTunes library that go great together," the blurb continued.

iPod nano provides up to 24 hours of music playback or five hours of video playback on a single charge. The 8GB model holds up to 2,000 songs, 7,000 photos, eight hours of video and seven hours of captured video; and the 16GB model holds up to 4,000 songs, 14,000 photos, 16 hours of video and 14 hours of captured video.
