Apple Intro­duces New iPod Nanos, orig­i­nally uploaded by stechico.

Apple intro­duced its new fourth gen­er­a­tion of iPod Nanos today in 9 fla­vor­ful col­ors. Here are the fea­tures that set it apart vs. its pre­de­ces­sors1:

  • Col­ors of course! Sil­ver, pur­ple, blue, green, orange, yel­low, pink, (PRODUCT) RED and black.
  • Built-in audio record­ing features.
  • Genius tech­nol­ogy” which auto­mat­i­cally cre­ates playlists from songs in your music library that go great together, with just one click.
  • UI/UX improve­ments with the help of the accelerom­e­ter. This allows it to behave like the iPhone/iPod Touch between switch­ing from Por­trait to Land­scape modes.
  • Improved 24 hours of music play­back or four hours of video playback.

I just won­der if its still nec­es­sary to buy the Nike+ piece since this new Nano now have an accelerom­e­ter built-in. If any, they should mod­ify the Nike+ piece to work with an iPod 1GB+ Shuf­fle; which will be tempt­ing for me to buy and use when run­ning. Bet­ter yet, just a stand­alone Nike+ piece that can sync on its own to the Nike+ site.
