New Nike+ iPod Going Wi-Fi and 3G


Stuff.tv is kicking back in Nike's HQ at the moment and claims to have official word about Nike's future plans with Apple. It says that the Nike+ system will be "definitely" extend beyond the iPod nano to support the relatively bulky iPhone and iPod touch. Interestingly, it will leap-frog the proprietary wireless RF link between the shoe module and nano adapter to take advantage of Wi-Fi and eventually 3G.

This, of course, leads to all kinds of speculation with regard to Apple's "lifestyle companion" patent we showed you last month. 3G support would presumably allow for real-time coaching and uploads of your training activity through the Nike Plus website.

So let's see... cellphone (check), iPod (check), Internet device (check), handheld gaming (almost), and now a Nike lifestyle companion (could be).
