Introduced in September 2008, the iPod nano (4th Generation) doubled the capacity of the previous model, and marked the return of the original nano form-factor. Whereas the "fat boy" iPod nano had been built wider to accommodate a 4:3 screen for viewing video, the iPod nano (4th Generation) added an accelerometer which allowed the iPod to be rotated 90 degrees for 4:3 video viewing. It also included Apple's "Genius" playlist feature, which allowed automatic generation of on-the-go playlists. The iPod nano (4th Generation) featured an aluminum/glass enclosure, and was available in nine different colors—silver, purple, blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, (PRODUCT) RED and black. The 8 GB and 16GB models respectively sold for $149 and $199.
