Earlier this week Apple’s head of iOS product marketing Greg Joswiak announced at the iPhone 5 media event that the company has released the 7th generation iPod nano. The nano has been through several phases like nano with video and a slimmer/longer nano. The multitouch nano is even used as a wristwatch. The new iPad nano has a larger screen than the last generation with separate hard volume buttons on the left side. The new iPod nano looks like a smaller version of an iPod Touch. The new nano uses the new Lightning connector and there is a home button at the bottom just like the iPod Touch. Apple put widescreen video playback and there is an FM tuner with live pause on it. There is a pedometer built in and integrated Nike+. The new iPod nano can play 30 hours of music and it starts at $149 for a 16GB version of the device. The new iPod nano is shipping in October.
