Rumor redux: Return of the iPod Nano camera

A second alleged picture of an iPod Nano case with a hole for a camera has surfaced on the site Apple.pro, fueling speculation that the next Nano will be able to capture video like the old fifth-generation Nano could.

Last we month we reported on Taiwanese Mac Blog Apple.pro showing a "spy" pic of a next-generation iPod Nano case that had a hole reserved for a camera. Well, Apple.pro has posted a new Nano spy pic that again strongly hints at Apple bringing image and video capture back to the Nano. We have no way to confirm any of this, but according to the site, the integrated camera will have a 1.3-megapixel image sensor.

As previously noted, some people were disappointed when Apple chose to shrink the iPod Nano, give it a smaller 1.5-inch multitouch display, and lose the built-in video camera.

I remain personally more interested in seeing the Nano get Bluetooth (so you can use wireless headphones with it), though combining a camera with Bluetooth would be intriguing, opening up the possibility to broadcast video wirelessly via a Bluetooth cell-phone connection.

The next Nano would be the seventh-generation model. If the past is any indication, Apple will unveil its new iPod products in the September time frame.
