In pictures: next-gen Apple iPod nano

Digital audioWe've been hearing a lot lately about Apple's alleged plans to add an iPhone-like camera to its next-generation iPods, and now iLounge has posted its rendition of what the 5th-generation Apple iPod nano might look like.

The site's 'artist's rendition' is based on rumours, gossip and speculation, but it's probably a good take on what the 5th-gen iPod nano may look like. Here it is:

At first glance, the imaginary next-gen iPod (above) looks pretty much the same as its predecessor (below), except for the wider screen ratio that stretches to 1.5:1 from 1:33:1. The Click Wheel is slightly smaller and positioned a bit lower on the nano's body, and a digital camera is placed at a seemingly awkward spot on the nano's backside.

While iLounge's mockup iPod is impressive, the camera placement does seem out of whack. Still, the marriage of iPod and digital camera is likely. Recent reports have Apple buying 3Mp and 5Mp camera CCDs from Omnivision for its embedded devices, and many sources expect to see a camera-equipped iPod later this year.
