Apple looks set to launch a new thinner version of its iPod Nano, says Digg founder Kevin Rose.

In his blog, Rose said the new version of the digital audio player will feature in Apple's product launch during September Apple launch along with a new version of iTunes.

Rose said the iPod would be thinner and longer than the current model and feature a wider screen and rounded, cylindrical casing. Rose also speculated that iPod prices would be cut so as not to affect sales of the iPhone.
