ipod nano 4g and ipod touch 2g

Apple has launch new models of his well known music players: the iPod Nano 4G and the iPod Touch 2G.

iFixit is again the first to give us insight photos of the new models: iPod Nano 4G & iPod Touch 2G.

In the new models the circuit board is smaller and with less components. For example, in the Nano, the DDRAM is located on top of the processor instead of using a separate package.

In the iPod Touch 2G, iFixit found a Bluetooth + FM chip from Broadcom, the BCM4325, but it is not to give Bluetooth or FM funcionality but for the Nike+ ANT shoes interface.

As usual, well engineered products, with pretty good design and incredible shrinking PCBs.
