iPod Nano Shrinks

The iPod Nano gets the major overhaul (the leaked photos seen around the web, were pretty accurate). The new design (4GB or 8GB) is short and wide and the Nano now comes with 2-inch, QVGA, 320 x 240 screens that are 65-percent brighter than previous models and have the highest pixel density the company has ever shipped.

The Nano will also ship with an "enhanced" UI and its own version of Cover Flow. Battery life has also been extended, with Apple claiming 24 hours of playback for audio, and 5 hours for video.

Holds up to 1,000 or 2,000 songs in 128-Kbps AAC format
Holds up to 3,500 or 7,000 iPod-viewable photos
Holds up to 4 hours (4GB) or up to 8 hours (8GB) of video

The 4GB Nano model will retail for $149, and will come in silver only, while the 8GB will retail for $199 and will come in silver, blue, green, black and red

Both models will be in stores by this weekend and are online now.
