    Whenever I saw that pic of the case, it looked very familiar, then I remember where I had seen it! It was on eBay about 2 years back, these are EXACTLY what the "Generic" aka Chinese Clones of the 2nd Gen Nanos looked like. Don't believe me check out the pics below, those are all pics not of cases but of real devices.NOTE:THESE ARE NOT APPLE MADE, THEY WERE 2ND GEN KNOCK OFFS, I'M SIMPLY SAYING THAT COULD THOSE SUPPOSED "NEW IPOD NANO CASE" PICTURES POSSIBLY ACTUALLY BE "OLD" CASES THAT WERE MADE FOR THESE OLD GENERICS OF THE 2ND GEN NANO!

    Now compare those to this, the alleged "New iPod Nano Case"

    Shockingly Similar eh?
    So, where those supposed "new" cases just old cases for these generic nanos, or have the tables turned and Apple is now copying its copier.

    Question.

    Do you HONESTLY BELIEVE, that Apple is ditching their proprietary cable and moving on to Mini USB?

    Check the plug on the bottom in the picture.

    Also, WHERE IS THE PLAY BUTTON? Why would they put a VOLUME Button where the PLAY button is supposed to be?

    CAPS LOCK.

    These are not Apple made devices, duh. The cases show no specific holes at the bottom for what size they could be, they just show the big screen which looks shockingly similar to this is all.

    Did you not read what I wrote? I specifically stated that these were Generic aka Chinese Copies of the older long nano (2nd Gen), the generic ones just changed the click wheel and added a bigger screen, but they still have similar design. I'm just saying all those "OMG11!!! OMG!!!!1!one! THIS IS the NEW iPod Nano case!!!1!" Could Very well jsut be old cases for these old generics that were made.

    They look more like Chinese knock offs than they do iPods.

    if Apple really comes out with Nanos that look like these, then wow

    they fail

    i doubt theyll look like that though
    it would kill the whole "Nano" thing

    My God tes, FOCUS!
    I'm saying that these ARE Chinese Knock offs, but you notice the big screen on these is the same as the supposed "New Nano cases". I'm just saying is it possible these new cases are actually "old" cases made for these generic models.

    dude.

    1. The ipod shown in the picture from Kevin Rose is different colors and is CURVED. Those are flat.

    2. Go look at macrumors.com and the cases they saw at an expo... and those cases are the real thing.
