Introducing the iPod Nano…In both black and white.62 percent smaller than the iPod Mini.

Jobs calls the iPod nano “an entirely new ground-up design, that also has 1000 songs in your pocket.” The white device features a color display and can support photos, uses a grey click wheel to navigate, and is 80 percent smaller in volume than the original iPod — thinner than a number two pencil, said Jobs.

The iPod nano ships today in 2GB and 4GB confiugurations for US$199 and $249 respectively. Apple is also offering customized iPod nano accessories including a $29 dock, $39 lanyard with built-in headphones, color-coordinated armbands for $29 each, and “nanotubes” — green, purple, blue and pink slipcases, sold in boxes of five, for $29 each

    I am big fan of both the iPod and iTunes, but this is stupid. I hope it bombs.

    I’m tired of the Apple-centric coverage on this site. I don’t see any posts about new devices from Creative, Sony, etc. here.

    That said, these devices are still way too expensive. 4GB for $249 is a regression. 100GB for $300 would be getting somewhere.

  • that’s COOL!!!!
