Apple's new iPod is not about video

Apple’s new iPod is not so much a video iPod, as it is an iPod that happens to play video. They’ve added a bigger screen and 50% more storage, and taken away a third of the size from their base iPod, making it an extremely attractive upgrade to a well-loved product.
Not many people are going to buy one of these to play videos, but plenty of people will buy them. In other words, video adds no value to the new iPod.
