Apple has today announced a series of products, including the new iPod nano (pictured), bringing video playback, an enhanced user interface featuring Cover Flow, and a new design to the small music player.
The new iPod nano features a larger two-inch display with 204 pixels per inch, which lets users watch their favorite movies, TV shows and music videos in the same resolution they currently enjoy on the video iPod, just in a small form factor.
iPod nano also includes three games, and additional games can be purchased from the online iTunes Store. iPod nano delivers up to 24 hours of audio playback or five hours of video playback on a single charge, and is encased in a new all-metal design made with anodized aluminum and polished stainless steel and comes in five new colors including silver, black, blue, green and a red special edition.
A new display is 65 percent brighter than the previous generation and delivers 320x240 resolution.
The company also introduced the new iPod classic, featuring 80GB or 160GB of storage, equivalent to up to 40,000 songs or 200 hours of video. Now in its sixth generation, the new iPod classic delivers all the features customers are used to, plus an enhanced user interface featuring the Cover Flow technology and a new all-metal enclosure. iPod classic is priced at US$249 for the 80GB model and US$349 for the 160GB model.
This new model features up to 40 hours of music playback and seven hours of video playback in the 160GB model, and up to 30 hours of music playback and five hours of video playback in the 80GB model on a single charge.
