Just as expected, Apple has unwrapped a new iPod nano during the event in San Francisco today. As previously rumored, the iPod nano has been completely redesigned and "re-invented" according to Apple's Greg Joswick. First off, the next-generation iPod nano is 40 percent thinner than the previous generation and will feature a 2.5-inch multitouch display, allowing for the return of video. It will come in seven colors - aluminum, black, purple, green, blue, yellow, and red. There is also an FM tuner and Live Pause feature with a 15-minute buffer. A pedometer is also built in, so no need for Nike+ equipment. Most importantly, the player will have built-in Bluetooth for audio playback. Battery life is rated at more than 30 hours of music playback, the longest ever for any iPod nano. The nano will also feature the new Lightning connector. The nano will be available in October and cost $149 for a 16GB version.
