(Newser) – Sure, Steve Jobs stole all the headlines at Apple's shindig today, but there was some product news, too: The new version of the iPod Nano adds a video camera, microphone, and FM tuner, CNET reports. The new Nano also has a slightly larger screen, which is now 2.2 inches instead of 2. At $179, the new 16GB Nano will be $20 cheaper than its predecessor. The 2GB iPod Shuffle is also getting a $20 price cut—to $59.

The higher end iPod Touch and iPod Classic lines are getting bigger: the 16GB iPod Touch is being scrapped in favor of a 32GB version, while a new 64GB Touch will be available, and the Classic will be 160GB instead of 120GB. On the software end, a new iPhone and iPod Touch OS will add a Genius feature for iPod Apps, which, like its music equivalent, makes recommendations based on purchases.
