    One of our users discovered some pictures of cheap iPod nano imitations that look strikingly similar to the rumored design of the fourth-generation nano. This can be interpreted in at least two ways: 1) the rumored design is just that, a rumor or 2) Apple is taking design cues from knockoff manufacturers. If number 2 is true, then perhaps we can look at the many sketchy iPod touch knockoffs being sold on eBay to get an idea of the new design?

    yeah but people are saying that Apple is going to use that design.....
    and they mean it like apple isnt the one who came up with that design...they put it like the chinese knockoff people did

    the thread name is "Apple TAKING DESIGN CUES from cheap knockoff manufacturers"

    theyre not taking the designs, theyre the ones who made them!

    why are so many people thinking that apple is imitating cheap ipod knockoffs..
    theyre just using the same style as the second gen ipod nano, like MrFairlady showed.
