Seventh-gen iPod nano with 1.3 megapixel camera?

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on May 10th, 2011

Could this be Apple’s next iPod nano? Taiwan’s Apple.pro website thinks so and since they also recently got their hands on a purported next-gen iPod nano chassis that seems to match the device pictured above, it looks likely.

The obvious change is the built-in camera, which is apparently 1.3 megapixels. Take this with the usual grain of salt for now, as we don’t have any confirmation, but it is looking like this is the real deal. We will know for sure before long.

Is the iPod nano 7 getting it’s camera back?

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2011

A new image may point to the iPod nano’s seventh generation regaining a camera. The part shows what looks like the current iPod, but with a cutout area that looks designed to fit a camera lens on the back.

If this is anywhere near the final product, it looks like Apple has found a way to include a camera in the touchscreen iPod nano redesign. You might remember that the last tall iPod nano actually had a video camera, but it was dropped in the new version, probably because of size and battery life problems. We don’t know if it will include still photography.
