Next iPod Nano to have Zune-like dimensions?

nano4x.jpg

iLounge reports the new iPod Nano 4G will totally throw out the squat dwarfism of the current Nano design to fit in 1.5:1 widescreen screen like on an iPhone or Touch. That’s a bummer: I actually love the current Nano, finding it a perfect compromise between complete pocketability and a full-featured MP3 player that can handle video.

    It looks like the iPod Mini, and thank goodness. That was a great design, so great that the Zune copied it.

    Nice iPod mini. Is that considered retro design or not since it’s only been 4 years…

    So the Nano becomes the Mini?

    Please tell me they will still make Shuffles. That’s the best one there is.

    You are dead wrong Mr. Occasional BoingBoing poster… the new dimensions are a mistake. The “gum wrapper” style nano make for much better pockatability, as well as hand-holding navagation. The only advantage of the square is larger screen size, which is negligible considering how small both screens are.

    I hate it when you guys make me look like the idiot I am. Fixing!
