    Engadget posts what is claimed to be an actual photo of one of the new "tall" iPod Nanos. Rumors have been persistent that the iPod Nano would see a return to the "tall" form factor next week. The larger screen will reportedly allow for better viewing of video content.

    The image also appears to be the same source image of an obscured photo published by MacNN earlier this evening. They felt confident that this was a "verified authentic photo" of the new iPod Nano. As well, they reported that the other Nano colors would be "more vibrant" than the current pale hues of the 3rd generation iPod Nano.

    Stop tempting me Apple. I'll need to see the feature set first though!

    In before VisualHub (or Handbrake) update.

    Wouldn't be my choice of color, besides that looks good.

    Nice. Very nice.

    If only I didn't have this lovely iPhone which already fits the purpose, plus some.

    Who am I kidding? I'm buying one. ;)

    And it's a wrap. Looks like Kevin Rose, and all the other rumors were right.

    Looks a lot better (at least from this angle) then I thought it would.

    I like it as well. Also, although it's hard to tell from the photo, this appears to "confirm" the curved shape, no?

    I like the idea of a curved form-factor, although I'm curious to see how it will affect screen glare.

    Also, I'm glad the colors seem to be more vibrant; the current pastel colors just never did it for me.

    Yawn.

    Apple's hardware design has been played and boring for a couple years now.

    I like that color.
    Hope the rest are just as vibrant.

    Even though I usually buy black iPod's. Ha.

    There are always haters at first, but most, if not all come around and end up loving it.

    I think Apple's products are so new and uniquely designed that there is a shock factor at first.

    Eh, I'm not feeling it as much as before, but we'll see when we get price and GBs

    Its not bad, but the whole click wheel feels dated. I'm looking for a new type of Nano, but I guess not quite yet.

    new shuffle please!

    Ehhh, I dunno, it looks pretty similar to the second gen, but I have to say that the curve seems like a pretty bad idea to me.

    If they come in 16GB I might just pick one of these up. Otherwise no deal!

    Well Apple is moving away from iPods. Its pretty clear. Next generations want iPod, Phone, Game Console, TV, Internet and 1000 other things in ONE. =)
    Apple need to make a truly groundbreaking device called: :apple:One

    I'm glad they're gone.

    Bring on the hardware specifications. Hopefully they're a lot better!

    I'm curious as to what the new UI will look like, due to the new screen aspect.
