We expected to see refreshed iPod lineups today, and Apple is not disappointing by following up the iPhone 5 announcement with the introduction of a completely refreshed seventh-generation iPod nano. It sports a larger display, Bluetooth, Home button, and Lightning connector. The new Nano is also the thinnest at just 5.4mm, and it includes play/pause, forward/back physical buttons in addition to an iPhone-style Home button. The Nano also come in seven colors, and it has the longest battery life of any Nano with up to 30 hours of music playback. Other new features: FM tuner with live pause, built-in pedometer, and a 38 percent thinner frame over the previous generation. The new iPod nano will be available for $149 in October.
