BERLIN - Engadget Spanish miraculously spotted a Hama made "iPod nano 4G" case buried inside a mountain of iPod accessories at the IFA trade show in Berlin, according to an Engadget report. The event claims to be the world's largest consumer electronics fair.
The Hama case lends credibility to an amazing nano mock-up we discovered last week revealing a return to a taller, thinner design and the addition of a rounded face. This random sighting also appears to confirm a leaked nano photo by Digg founder Kevin who described Apple's redesigned 4G nano in a video clip well ahead of Apple's announcment of their refreshed line of iPods, iMacs and macbooks sometime next week.
The 4G nano sport case is pictured above next to Apple's wildly popular Jesus Phone used to compare size. I noticed that the smoked plastic finish appears a bit dark for optimum video playback, at least in the photo. It's most likely the result of overhead reflections and poor flouescent trade show lighting creating an optical illusion.
