We definitely believe Apple is going somewhere with this new release of iPod Nano. While the new iPod Touch doesn’t boast a camera, the new iPod Nano does, so I guess the rumors were half correct in the end…
The new iPod Nano has an improved screen, and will be available in 8GB and 16GB. Its latest component, the video camera, we think will bring Apple much closer to the likes of portable video camcorders like Flip. Otherwise, its design hasn’t had too much of a makeover.
Sony has announced the launch of its latest addition to their Walkman portable video / music players. Believe it or not, the new S Series is the first ever Walkman video MP3 player with built-in stereo speakers.

It features a bright, high resolution 2.4-inch LCD screen, and is designed to play videos in landscape format with a supplied stand accessory. More info and full press release right after the jump…

If you weren’t following us with the live blogging of the WWDC 2009, Phil Schiller has now officially announced the latest iPhone. While having said that the iPhone 3G will still remain on the market, its hoped that the iPhone 3G S will become the most popular camera and video mobile phone to come.
So what will be the specs and features? Many of which were already known through rumors in fact. To be released in black and white, the latest iPhone 3GS will be equipped with a three megapixel camera with autofocus, touch focus, no flash. 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, voice control is a new one, video recording / video camera will also boast editing function. Performance as you would imagine has been much improved with this new iPhone, battery life has also been given a massive boost, with video playback for example now supported for up to ten hours and talk time up to 12 hours on 2G. Also as rumored was a built in compass function, the new iPhone 3GS will of course arrive with iPhone 3.0.
iPhone 3.0 will officially be available to all on June 17th. It will be free for all iPhone customers to update to, while it will cost $9.95 for iPod touch users.

It was a great chance to be able to see live for the first time how the latest LG S-Class user interface worked on the new LG Arena – a full touchscreen mobile phone which LG has pitched to be “the place to play”.
