Apple hasn't forgotten about the iPod Nano. In fact, of every device highlighted at Apple's press conference in San Francisco today, the iPod Nano probably received the most loving upgrades. The new iPod Nano now features a video camera, an FM tuner, a microphone to record voice memos and a speaker to play back music and videos.
Oddly enough, the iPod Nano was the device no one really expected to come equipped with a camera upgrade. All signs pointed to the iPod Touch, but last-minute rumors about a delay related to a hardware issue appear to have been true. The iPod Nano's camera captures VGA quality (640 x 480) H.264 video, with up to 30fps and AAC audio.
The new iPod Nano also features a slightly larger 2.2 inch screen and Live Pause for the FM tuner. When you're listening to a radio station, the iPod Nano is constantly buffering the station. If you need to take a quick break, you can actually pause the radio station and pick up where you left off. You can rewind as far back as 15 minutes.
You can purchase the upgraded music device right now from Apple's store. The 8GB model will run you $149, with the 16GB model costing $179. It's available in silver, black, purple, blue, green, orange, yellow, red and pink.
