A number of major U.S. retailers appear to be out of stock on certain models of the sixth-generation iPod nano, suggesting that Apple may be planning to refresh the device in the near future. 9to5Mac reports that Amazon is out of stock of roughly half its available nano configurations, Best Buy is similarly spotty in its availability, Walmart has only a few models in stock, and Target is likewise out of stock of several models. The report also indicates that Amazon.co.uk is also out of stock of several models; however, both the Apple Store and B&H Photo appear to be fully stocked. While the shortages could be due to some other cause, similar stock shortages have in the past correctly pointed to imminent refreshes or replacements for other Apple products.

I wish they would go back to the old format for iPod nano. I miss the buttons. The touch interface just isn’t as good. Make a buttoned nano with 32 gigs and I’ll buy one.

I had to replace my trusty 2nd generation Nano earlier this year and, except for the clip, I dislike the new Nano so much. The battery life sucks so hard, I get frustrated with the interface, and I absolutely hate that it resets itself (and in turn its shuffle algorithm) if I don’t use it after 24 hours. That said, I probably won’t buy a new Nano until this current one (mercifully) dies.

I think Apple should change the name of current iPod Nano to iPod Shuffe and launch 4G Nano again with higher capacity, longer battery life, back camera, FM radio, ect. The Apple should also shape iPod classic to iPod Mini style but bigger with 2.8in or 3in retina display, true line out, usb out and longer battery with FLAC, OGG support and adding Micro SD card support on all models willbe amazing. The iPod Touch with bigger screen like 4in to 4.8in , higher capacity and longer battery life willbe great change.
