But will it play "Nextel Chirp"?

Briefly: new credit-card sized iPod Nano in stores this weekend in 2 gig ($199) and 4 gig ($249) models, replacing the discontinued iPod Mini; Motorola's iTunes- and podcast-compatible Rokr phone ($249 with 2-yr Cingular contract) holds 100 songs, uploadable via USB port; also, Apple signs up two new content slaves. But what happened to Video iPod?

WATCH: Motorolla Rokr demo, including a minute or so of Madonna's new single, which just happens to be called "Hung Up," plus previews of a TV ad campaign said to include cameos by Madge, Little Richard, Bootsy Collins, Sum-41, Mya, Lil Jon, the Pussycat Dolls, the White Stripes, Billie Joe, Jimi Hendrix, Biggie Smalls, and Beethoven. And yes, some of those people are still alive.
