Apple has just announced the new iPod nano and we were on hand to get a close look and grab a handful of pictures for you.

Apple told us, as expected, that the iPod nano will be getting a video camera and speaker. The screen has been lengthened to 2.2-inch diagonally.

However we've already spotted that you won't be able to take still pictures or download any apps for the device.

The nano is also getting "Genius Mixes", text-to-speech functionality from the iPod shuffle, and an FM radio device - something other manufacturers have provided for some time. There's also a pedometer and a voice recording application.

The 8GB model will be $149 in the US and £115 in the UK, and the 16GB will be $179 in the US and £135 in the UK. Both are available today.
