Pics Of Apple Touchscreen Leaked, iPod Touch Nano Likely?

Several pictures of what seems to be a square touchscreen display have been leaked online by the same guys who brought us images of the first unibody Apple Macbook Pro laptop and the iPhone 4G.

Taiwan-based Apple Pro's snaps were taken fairly close and are quite detailed showing that the screen in question is Apple-bound. Interestingly, the site also published a rendering of a concept Apple watch called the iWatch which may be paired with a face camera and Facetime. But that's unlikely.

It is very likely that the device which will use the screen will have limited functionality and some have suggested that it could very well be the screen of the next iPod Nano.

However, given that the current iPod Nano has a screen diagonal of 2.2-inch (around 56mm) and that this new screen has a diagonal of 42mm, we're not convinced. This may therefore rule out any iPod Nano Touch rumours.

The other possibility is that the screen will be used on the next generation of the iPod Shuffle which would then allow Apple to claim that its entire range of media players now have colour screen (and can therefore play video).

However, we couldn't help but notice the series of lines that are present on the screen and which look like those found on solar panels. Could Apple be working on something more radical than just another product with a colour screen?
