Apple’s Greg Joswiak, vice president of iPod, today at the company’s media even took to the stage and revealed the new revamped 2.5-inch iPod nano.

There’s also a home button (like the new iPod touch and iPhone5) on the front and volume/playback buttons on the side.
Packing FM tuner and Bluetooth features on-the-go, the new iPod nano comes flaunting in seven colors, including white, black, pink, green, blue, yellow, and red.
It also uses Apple’s latest unveiled 8-pin dock connector, dubbed Lightning. It also has the support for 720p video playback at 30 fps. You can get your hands-on over this Apple’s sexy baby in October for no less than $149 [16GB model]. Keep in mind, preorders for this kiddo happen starting 14th September, on Apple’s online site (www.apple.com) in US.
Apart of the nano, Apple also revealed the new iPod Shuffle, a yet affordable device for music pleasure. Coupled by 2GB of internal storage, the new Shuffle is available starting today in pink, yellow, blue, green, purple, and silver and slate for a suggested price of $49. Providing 15 hours of audio playback, the iPod Shuffle measures at 8.7 mm, and weighs only 12.5 grams, it also has VoiceOver button that says the song title, playlist, artist name, or battery status aloud.
