Photos of Steve Jobs and his new Nano

Here are a few pics of Steve Jobs announcing the new Nano and its sweet new features at this morning’s Apple event, taken with my G10. (Not bad for a point-and-shoot!)

This is what the Genius Mixes will look like.

This was from a demo of the new video camera on the Nano. The resolution is awesome, but a quick hands-on after the announcement revealed what in my opinion is a pretty big design flaw — the camera is right behind the control pad, which means you really have to make an effort not to cover the lens with your fingers while shooting.

This is a screen shot from a new ad, which you’ll probably see on TV soon.

    Hey BILLLAKE50, there are bluetooth earbuds. Etymotic makes, apparently, a pretty good pair.

    Except for the fact that they are quite expensive, and their excellent drivers cannot really make up for the fact that bluetooth audio is not exceptionally hi-fi.

    But hey, if the cord REALLY bugs you, you can spend $130 and get these. Or get their 6i model, with a cord, for $70.

  2. Have the previous Gen and think its great! Would a radio and video camera make me upgrade? probably not…

    This really needs the ability to shoot still images. The camera on my phone is awful, and i don’t always feel like lugging around my dslr.

    Much as the “camera behind control pad” has its problems, I suspect the thickness of the screen electronics and the thinness of the Nano made this inevitable.

    Perhaps the way around this is to adopt a horizontal approach with the Nano, and hold the edges only with fingers, pushing the buttons with the thumb.

    If Apple *really* has their stuff together, then plugging in a pair of the those headphones with a remote on the line will give you a “remote control” for your video camera.

    @dculberson: Winamp is free and works well with iPods.

    O_M: The Nano is a really nice MP3 player. The portability is incredible. My only beef with it is using iTunes to load it up; I really don’t like iTunes.

    Why are there no bluetooth ear buds? I hate having that tether wire hanging down in front of me all the time

    So now we’ll also be annoyed by tinny video on the bus and train rather than tinny audio?
