New iPod Nano 2010: Release of 6th Generation

By Jamie Pert - Sep 1, 2010

As you may know, the Apple Media Event is fully underway and we have just been treated to some hot news concerning the new 6th generation iPod Nano that has undergone some huge cosmetic changes.

This is the biggest, most un-expansive revamp the Nano has had to go through yet. The clickwheel has disappeared and is now 46 percent smaller than previous models.

The clickwheel has made way for a new touchscreen interface, probably to keep up to date with the touchscreen trend and has been square shape sculptured, which in turn makes the device 42 percent lighter.

The volume buttons do still exist in the form of physical buttons though, and are placed on the side with a clip on the back. Battery life is also said to have enough juice to last 24 hours. There is no saying how they tested this with different volume levels though.

The new Nano will also come in seven selected colors. White, green, pink, blue, yellow, silver and red.

As for the price, you are looking at $149 for 8GB of storage or $179 for the 16GB model.

Images of the new Nano can be found via the source below.
