Will The New iPod Nano Please Stand Up?
This reaction is typical of Apple when an upcoming product has been leaked, as we all witnessed when Apple lashed out at ThinkSecret for revealing the existence of the Mac Mini & iPod Shuffle just prior to their official debut. Apple doesn't (historically) sic their law team of mock-ups and wild news that isn't related to upcoming offerings, which would lead us to believe that this could very well be the genuine article.
While the appearance might seem a tad odd at first, there are 2 points we'd like to make:
- The general proportions are somewhat similar that of the new Creative Zen, only turned sideways
- There are no current estimates of how thin or thick this device is. It could end up being ultra-thin, and that might offset its appearance.
As with all rumors, take these with a grain of salt until official announcements are made. We expect just such an announcement on September 5th.
