Normally we’re not rumormongers here at DVICE, but this time we have two pieces of supporting evidence of a new iPod nano in the works, so here goes. First we hear Digg’s social networking guru Kevin Rose saying he’s seen pictures of a newer, tall-n-skinny iPod nano that’ll be on its way next month.

Maybe it’s true. It is high time for an iPod update. While this is all sketchy hearsay, after the jump take a look at a video of Rose for yourself, and see if you believe him or not:
