The new old iPod Nano


John Gruber on the new iPod Nano:

Very curious: the UI still looks iOS 6-style.

UPDATE: Word from a few little birdies is that what remains of the iPod software team is now working on Apple Watch — the Nano UI wasn’t updated to look like iOS 7 because there’s no one left to do it.

Releasing a new piece of hardware that eschews a now two-year old UI redesign sure feels more like something you'd expect from Samsung rather than Apple. Actually, Samsung probably wouldn't even do that. This is more the move you expect from one of those low-end manufactuers that sell $40 phones at grocery store checkouts.
