Macworld Podcast #8: ROKR phone, iPod nano

The Macworld editors were out in force today at Apple’s press event, just a few blocks from our offices in San Francisco. True to form, Apple CEO Steve Jobs didn’t disappoint.

Apple announced two new major products — the new iTunes phone, the ROKR, from Motorola; and the new iPod nano, packing up to 4GB of music into a tiny portable player.

We’ve got nearly 25 minutes of audio, including excerpts from Jobs’ presentation and on-the-spot commentary from Macworld editors Jennifer Berger, Dan Frakes and Christopher Breen.
