At a company event today Apple announced a new iPod nano that has a video camera, FM radio and a pedometer. Apple CEO Steve Jobs said that the step counts and estimated calories burned data collected by the iPod nano can be sent to the user's Nike+ iPod account for tracking.

"iPod nano is the world's most popular music player with over 100 million sold," Jobs stated in a company release. Despite the additional features added to the new iPod nano, it will still cost between $149 and $179.

"iPod nano is also now an even better workout companion with the new built-in pedometer," the company's release explains. "iPod nano can keep track of your steps taken and calories burned, helping you meet your short and long-term fitness goals."
