It appears that there might be some new bells and whistles in the new upcoming seventh generation iPod Nano. Apparently, Apple could add a camera to the much awaited next edition of the popular music player, according to some sources. A post which had originally been published on the Chinese site named Apple.pro, said that the same compact form factor of the sixth generation iPod Nano will be retained by Apple; however it will also include a camera this time around.
The fifth generation of the iPod Nano was a much larger device which featured a widescreen display, a clickwheel, a video recording camera and also video playback. However, all these features were completely done away with in the sixth edition of the device, which was essentially a much smaller version of the iPod Touch, which featured a small multi touch screen and a belt clip, and if rumours are to be believed, it will soon regain the camera. It was two days ago that Apple.pro reported receiving these images, and the site has a reputation of being quite credible. It has also previously leaked information about the iPhone 4, the current iPod Nano and the iPad 2 which proved to be true after the respective devices were released.
According to 9to5Mac the addition of the camera will also mean that the position of the belt clip will have to be reconsidered by Apple as the position of the newly placed camera appears to be similar to that of the clip. Other rumours about Apple that have recently emerged concern remarks made by the CEO of Sony Howard Stringer suggesting that the iPhone 5 may have an 8 megapixel camera which will be produced by Sony. It is also being said that the new iPhone will not be released before fall this year, contrary to expectations of a summer release.
