New iPod Nano To Use Only A 3cm Touch Screen?Written by John Thompson on August 28, 2010 · Filed under Tech
In case you hadn’t heard, there’s an Apple event (iPad update we presume) going on this Wednesday, September 1st, and the rumours are still hotting up more than ever. AppleInsider has one of the more interesting rumours floating around the web, and are saying that the sixth generation iPod Nano will consist of just a 3cm square touch screen.
This could account for the leak of what appeared to be a 3cm square touch screen earlier in the year with Apple branding on it, but unfortunately, this would indeed rule out that iWatch that I was so looking forward to using!
The source revealed that the new iPod Nano will retain the 30 pin connector that iPods currently use, and have only a few buttons on the side, maybe for volume control.
Other rumours heading in to the event on Wednesday include an updated version of iLife for Mac OS X, as well as a 3G equipped iPod Touch.
