iPod Nano's New Home Button

I just realized that not only are the icons in the new iPod Nano circular, the home button is circular too. No, not the shape of the home button. I'm not that retarded. The graphic on the new Nano is a circle. If you recall, it has always been a heavily rounded rectangle since the first iPhone and iPod Touch. Overview_hero_medium

And for those of you who don't remember, this is what the Home Button looks like on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

I guess the design is supposed to reflect the UI. In fact, you can think of the Home Button as an app icon, one that simply brings you to the home menu.

Just an interesting find I would like to share.
