The fifth-generation iPod nano packed video recording, a widescreen display, and video playback. Apple decided to drop these key features in favor of a smaller-form factor, a Multi-Touch display, an iOS-like user interface, and a belt clip for the current, sixth generation model. Now, according to a purported seventh generation iPod nano part from Apple.pro, Apple may be putting the camera back into their popular music player while still keeping the current model’s size and display.
The image was apparently sent to the site two days ago. The site has been relatively accurate in the past, leaking legitimate images of Verizon iPhone 4 schematics from Foxconn, the mini touch-screen found in the current iPod nano, accurate iPad 2 details, and more. Something to note about Apple’s purported plans for the next iPod nano is the location of the belt clip. With this purported camera hole Apple will most likely need to re-position it or maybe even make it shorter. Also, how would using this super-small device for taking pics and flicks feel?
