Last week, we reported on some rumors via Digg’s Kevin Rose about a possible iPod Nano redesign. MacRumors is providing some more evidence for that rumor with some pics and details from a semi-reliable Chinese website.
The website, iDealsChina, has been right before. They leaked the case redesign for the iPhone 3G. This time, they are claiming they have leaked 3D renderings of a possible 4th generation iPod Nano redesign. At right, you can see one of these 3D renders.
The pictures and details seem to line up with what Kevin Rose had previously predicted. The screen appears to be curved and wider (or taller depending on your perspective). The new screen would allow playback of widescreen videos.
But, at the end of the day, it’s still just a rumor; a rumor with a lot of backing and which honestly sounds like part of the natural progression of the product. Only time will tell.
MacRumors also points out a separate bonus rumor that says there is an update is in order for the iPod Touch that could include GPS. I wouldn’t hold your breathe on that one, though.
