New iPod nano may be the motivation I need to train hard again

New iPod nano may be the motivation I need to train hard again

The big Apple iPod event was held today and as Andrew posted we saw a refresh of the entire iPod lineup. While the capacity upgrades may be nice for some, I personally find the most surprising and refreshing news to be the iPod nano update. These devices include an integrated video camera, speaker, mic, pedometer and FM radio tuner, none of which I was expecting to see in the nano lineup. I figured we would see a camera and mic in the iPod touch, but that hasn't happened yet. The iPod nano is a runner's dream and I intend to give you a real-life perspective of it in action soon. I also enjoy using my Flip minoHD camera, but IMHO Apple just trumped these type of devices (there is a Kodak model too) in more ways than just the video camera hardware.
