iPod Nano Meets iPod Touch?
I've been thinking, what exactly can Apple do with the next-gen nano?
I think the truly revolutionary option would be to turn it into the third iPhone OS device in the lineup.
I've included a render I did with a size comparison to the iPod touch. It's almost the same size as the iPod nano 5G, thought shorter and wider to accomodate the screen size.
It would have an approximately 3" screen, with 320x480 resolution. Probably an iPhone 3G processor/hardware set maybe with 128MB of ram. Probably 8/16GB storage to keep it in the cheap-end. And of course available in all colours, with front-cam for iChat and still/video cam on the back with mic (no flash).
Consumers seem to really want an iPod touch or iPhone with colours, so this could help settle that section of the market.

Personally, the people who buy Nanos, IMO but them to throw them on their arms at the gym, or their pockets at work, or while exploring a city, along those lines. Nano buyers dont want storage, or apps, they just want their music, videos and podcasts. Apple has the iPhone, iPad, and The Touch. IMO the Nano and Classic will always be our familiar iPods, we've grown to love. Great idea, and mockup, but IMO the Nano and Classic will always be touch screen free!

It could be made quite inexpensive, when Apple makes iPods they get HUGE discounts on the parts, because they sell an incredible amount of iPods each year. They could actually keep it at the same price points, probably using parts almost as fast as the 3GS (which would be satisfactory for such an inexpensive product).
