While the next generation iPhone and the rumored iPad mini have been stealing the spotlight, there’s been one item that hasn’t gotten the attention of the rumor mill: the iPod nano. Luckily, Japanase blog Macotakara has posted additional details about the next generation iPod nano, and the iPad mini.
The most curious part is the mention that the iPod would be Wi-Fi capable, which would allow it to use iTunes in the cloud.
The report kicks off with the iPad mini, particularly some of the physical details about the device:
According to Asian source, the name of Apple’s new product, which are expected to have 7″85′ and called as iPad mini, will be named as “iPad mini” officially. This source expects that “iPad” logo will be printed on back of case same as “iPod” is printed on iPod nano and iPod touch, and it means one new product will be added on iPad’s product brand genre.
It then extends over to the new iPod nano, claiming it will receive Wi-Fi to support iTunes in the Cloud:
Next iPod nano may equip Wi-Fi antenna on side of that case, and support iTunes Music Cloud in order Apple to provide a iconic product to promote the largest Music Store in the world.
This would allow users to download past music, movies, or TV shows onto their devices when connected to a Wi-Fi network. The site also mentions the mysterious hole in the back case for the next generation iPod Touch, and guesses NFC capabilities, but did not give a clear answer.
