Nike+ Coming To iPhone, iPod Touch

Stuff.tv claims to have heard from a Nike spokesperson that Nike is working to bring Nike+ to Apple's iPhone and iPod touch.

The first piece of news is that Nike+ will definitely be extending its compatibility beyond the iPod Nano to the iPhone and iPod Touch. No surprise there really, but the interesting detail is that it could also make use of both devices Wi-Fi (and, ultimately for the iPhone, 3G capability) to let you update your training log on the fly. Once youve legged round your local park youll be able to send the data (probably via a software app like the one the new SportBand uses) wirelessly without having to sit down and drip sweat over your computer. Very cool.


Currently, Nike+ only works with the iPod Nano. Evidence of just such a possible collaboration was found in October 2007 during jailbreaks of the iPhone software, however this is the first official word. Nike has been steadily expanding the system since its launch in 2006 to include other devices and communication with gym equipment.
