RUMOR: iPod nano 4G, touch 2G dimensions revealed?

“Confirming details first reported by iLounge in July, apparent dimensional drawings for both the fourth-generation iPod nano and second-generation iPod touch have appeared, suggesting that the devices will have familiar measurements but with interesting new shapes and features,” Charles Starrett reports for iLounge.

“Images of the supposed new iPod nano show a device that measures 90.75mm tall by 38.75mm wide by 6.08mm deep, compared to the second-generation nano’s measurements of 90mm by 40mm by 6.5mm. These numbers suggest that the device will be the thinnest and narrowest iPod nano yet released, though almost inperceptibly so, while also just a hint taller than the original and second-generation models. An oval-like body shape will be similar to, but apparently more pronounced than the one on the second-generation nano. Notably, the images seem to extinguish a concern that the device’s screen would be curved to match its shape; the metal body will give way to a plastic-covered screen that is as flat as prior-generation screens,” Starrett reports.

“The second-generation iPod touch is depicted as having a shape similar to the iPhone 3G,” Starrett reports.

  1. If this is real, there is a new button/port on one side of the new iPod touch, and a “something” where the camera is located on the iPhone.

    The iPhone’s side volume buttons are a great fit for the side, but why would the camera (if there is one) have such a big hole?

    My prediction is that this indicates a camera with a flash. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> and that the much thicker profile (compared to the orig. iPod touch), could be for the giant honking battery required.

  2. iPods get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger, they get smaller, they get bigger.

  3. Never did much care for chunky iPods. The tall/thin versions were so elegant.

    @Unfettered: A portable cheese slicer powered by the iPod’s docking port is a great idea. You should talk to Griffin about it.
