Holy friggin redesign Batman! It appears that the new iPod nano is no joke. Multiple sources have confirmed that the fourth-generation iPod nano will not be transformed into a compact version of the iPod touch as originally speculated. The new design will be thinner and taller according to several reports.
Mention of a vertically oriented display featuring a 1.5:1 widescreen aspect ratio are being touted, allowing the device to be rotated to watch movies. Apple's classic Click Wheel will remain in effect. Cruel and unusual reporting by some heartless jokers points to the new nano closely resembling a flash based Zune, if only in size. The comparison on any level is pure blasphemy for committed cult of Apple followers. No word on storage beyond 8GB as yet. We can expect aggressive pricing from Apple on this one.
