Yesterday Steve Jobs announced the new version of the iPods (new colors for the Shuffle, 3G Nano "fatty", iPod "classic", iPod Touch). There are a lot of posts about this, so I'm not going to increase the echo chamber effect.

Just want to focus on one think that is very important to me: the Nike+ sport kit.

Steve Jobs itself announced during the keynote that the new iPod Nano is compatible with the current version of the Nike+ Sport Kit, and the product page on Apple site reflects this, and provides some images of the new Nike+ UI (Thanks to Podophile for bringing this to my attention):

The new Nano looks awesome, for the same price you get double the storage, the ability to play videos, and you also get the cover flow, which is cool. And I love the new Nike+ UI. But I'm a bit concerned about all the Nike+ garments I've got: I still have to see a size comparison between the old and new Nano, but I really don't think the new one will fit into the t-shirts and armbands I own. But the new armband should have also some room for the Nike+ receiver... ORDERED smile_regular

One last comment about the iPod Touch: as Mauricio said, the iPod touch is not only the best iPod ever, but, IMHO, is also the best PDA ever (with Wi-Fi, the best portable web browser ever, music and video playback, and all the "usual" PDA applications). The only thing missing is the possibility to use 3rd party offline applications.
