Next-gen iPod nano to get a built-in camera

One source coming up with the news that the next-gen iPod nano is to get a built-in camera can be brushed off, but two make for more interesting reading.

Following the news we brought you from insider sources of French site Hardmac, that stated when Apple refreshes its iPod touch and iPod nano devices later this coming September, both will include camera modules, iLounge has received similar intel.

From a source with "a perfect track record for accuracy", iLounge reports the fifth gen nano will get "a camera on the back in an unusual location, one which conceivably might be blocked by hands... except when the iPod nano is corner-gripped for photography".

In addition, the next-gen nano is said to see its screen widened to a 1.5:1 aspect ratio, while the click wheel is smaller, with a smaller central "action" button.

iLounge's "gut feeling" is that the new nanos will debut in September, which ties in with the previous French report.

We will keep you posted.
