Apple intros “new” iPod nano: refined UI, 8GB/16GB $129/$149

Apple today announced what it described as the “new” iPod nano, a refined version of the touch-screened sixth-generation model. The new iPod nano offers a refined user interface with bigger icons and a variety of clock faces for users who want to use it as a watch. It also features an updated Fitness feature to track walks and runs, suggesting that Nike+ functionality will be offered without any external devices. The new iPod nano is available immediately in seven colors and sells for $129 for the 8GB model and $149 for the 16GB model.

Updated: This article has been updated from the original version, which followed Apple’s claim that the device was “new.” Subsequently released information suggests that all of the new features noted above will be brought to the sixth-generation (2010) iPod nano model as a free version 1.2 software update through iTunes, suggesting that no hardware changes have been made to the “new” device. Spoken feedback previously available during Nike+ runs is now available without the use of Nike+ hardware.
