A bunch of rumours about the next iPod Nano have been floating around lately.From what we can tell, the next generation will keep the same form factor, but add a bunch of new hardware features that open up a ton of possibilities for gaming and possibly video.
Here’s what we know so far:
- There will likely be a 1.3 MP camera on the back.
- It will include new software for games. (Perhaps access to the App Store?)
- New sensors for temperature and motion.
- A microphone.
- Apple filed a patent for something called Environment Sensitive Display Tags. To us, this sounds like iPod Nanos will be able to talk to each other and other Apple devices using NFC-like technology.
We’re happy to see the Nano (likely) getting video again. It was a bit odd for Apple to strip that last year.
