Apple adds video to new iPod nano

Despite a number of rumors that Apple's "Rock & Roll" media event would feature a camera-equipped iPod touch, the highlight of Steve Jobs' keynote was actually a new iPod nano outfitted with a video camera. The fifth-generation device is in no way a complete redesign, but rather a refinement of its predecessor. Along with the new camera, the Nano also sports a larger display, FM tuner, gloss finish, and more. Read the full review.

    Sony's Webbie

    Yeah, at ten times the size. Read the user reviews on Amazon, it sucks. The strength of the nano is the convenience of a good enough camera on a very small device, HD would only bloat it and is pure overkill.

    It isn't 10 times the size, far from it. The biggest size discrepency is the depth, and that isn't a killer thing. And not everyone sees that being 'small' as being 'better'.

    And I'm sure if it had an HD camera you wouldn't be calling it bloat and overkill, but how its a killer product.
