China's Patent & Trademark Office has published the equivalent of a design patent for Apple's iPod nano late last Friday. The design is likely a reflection of Apple's 2009 model. Rumors of a possible backside camera coming to the next generation nano surfaced back in April of this year and then somewhat supported by an Apple patent application in May which presented a camera feature on the nano's interface. Whether the camera will debut at all this year or end up being on the back or front side of the nano – is yet to be determined. In other IP news, Apple has filed for a figurative trademark design in the US for their new iPad "Smart Cover."
