The 5th generation Apple iPod will indeed feature a video camera as many earlier sources had revealed. The Apple “It’s Only Rock and Roll” event today also revealed that the device will feature a pedometer and a radio plus voice recorder. Not bad for a device that starts at a mere $150.
Gizmodo also highlighted some of the other main features:
• Video camera (640×480)
• Integrated mic
• Integrated speaker
• FM Radio!!!!!
• One-click YouTube uploads
• Voice Over like Shuffle
• Pedometer with Nike+ syncing online
• Voice Recorder
• 2.2-inch screen is possibly larger than last model
As we mentioned above the 8GB iPod Nano will sell for a respectable $150. While 16GB comes in only $30 higher at $180.
It’s your turn Flip, what are you going to offer in your next digital camcorder, a high tech MP3 player perhaps?
Update: We’ve got some more official specs for the device:
The FM Tuner includes Live Pause and iTunes Tagging, while the screen display is larger than past Nano devices at 2.2 inches. The video is also far off from Flip HD recorders with VGA support up to 640 x 480 and 30fps with AAC audio, while also offering H.264 support.
The camera also offers a bunch of realtime effects that include sepia, security camera, bulge, cyborg and others. While the 5th Gen is also lighter by 0.02 ounces coming in at 1.28 ounces, which is a bit odd considering it now has a camera and is the exact same size dimensions wise when compared to the Nano 4th generation.
The Nano 5th Gen according to Apple can also playback music for 24 hours, while that number is dramatically decreased to 5 hours for video playback.
