Early last year, a photo hit the net that appeared to be a leaked shot of a new iPod
Nano design that featured a camera
. The rumors started up again in November when a May 2010 patent application for a speaker design surfaced that showed an iPod Nano with a hole in it in the same position as the supposed camera hole on the original leaked photo. Now, several more photos of the device have surfaced, and it certainly looks to be an iPod Nano with a camera. Even if it is, though, we don’t know if it’s still in the works after leaking so long ago.
While it’s undoubtedly impressive to shove a camera into something that tiny, I have to wonder what the purpose is. Every gadget and gizmo comes equipped with a camera these days and the sort of person that would carry around an iPod Nano probably also has a phone with a camera on it, a camera that’s most likely of much higher quality than what the Nano could offer (reportedly just a 1.3MP shooter).
Perhaps my indifference towards Apple has soured me towards the idea, so if anybody has a good argument in favor of a camera-equipped iPod Nano, I’d love to hear it.
