Is this Apple’s next iPod nano? It is if you believe the folks from Taiwan’s Apple.pro website who, as you may recall, also recently got their hands on a purported next-gen iPod nano chassis that seems to match the complete device pictured above. As you can see, the big change here is the addition of a built-in camera that’s said to be 1.3 megapixels, which appears to have also shoved the clip out of the way, although there does seem to be a faint outline where one could be. Of course, the key word here is purported — to its credit, some of the site’s leaks have indeed panned out in the past, but we’d still recommend taking this one with a grain of salt for the time being.

The fifth-generation iPod nano packed video recording, a widescreen display, and video playback.

It looks like iPod nano that was launched by Apple in September has been hacked by developer and hacker, James Whelton.

He has managed to remove an app icon from iPod nano’s Springboard and replace it with a blank space by bypassing the checks performed by the Nano OS.

Whelton explains:

I’ve successfully done a basic springboard hack, figured out how to bypass the cache comparison and uncovered some interesting stuff as whats to come on the iPod Nano. The springboard hack is just the removal of a app and creation of a blank space. Not that amazing, but whats important is the bypass of Nano’s cache comparison, which compares any modded SB file and reverts it if it doesn’t like it, this opens up the possibility of hacking and modding, while not adding bootloaders or any of that fun stuff.

Here it is, the new (and completely redesigned) iPod nano. Super thin, super light, and really, the capacitive multitouch works very well. The screen is crisp and top menu navigation is smooth, but can’t say we have great feel for moving back out of sub menus (via swipe or holding down the screen). We’re going back for seconds and thirds, peep the initial gallery below! Continue reading »
