Looks like the new 5th gen iPod nano with the Nike+ sport kit will allow for linking a heart rate monitor!  People have been waiting for this for a long time!  Surprised it’s not mentioned.

So does the 5th gen nano have a better quality click-wheel than the 4th gen? By which I mean, can you scroll through a plastic fronted case unlike the 4th gen?

Am I the only one who thinks apple has hit a bit of a wall here? Even if there aren’t any new features the time was when their products would half in size every release. I don’t think that any owners of last generation gear have any real incentive to upgrade.

Seems to me that the camera/video lens on the new Nano is in the worst place possible. In almost every shot I have seen the user’s finger fills most of the screen, because the lens is where your fingers would be when operating the wheel.

It would have been far better to position the lens more centrally, or behind the screen. Apple I think you have made a mistake here, your famed design & ergonomics skills have taken a back seat to cramming in an unnecessary feature.

Also, by switching the position of the dock connector and headphone socket, will users need to buy new cases and accessories?

@3 - I agree, this is just a quick ‘polish’ of their existing products. Didn’t the classic have a 160gb capacity a few years ago, which Apple withdrew? So what’s so hot about effectively bringing back an old model?
