I made a nice little mock-up of what SHOULD have been introduced today. I give you, the (fake) new iPod classic :)

Yes, it would have all the features of the new nano.

And at least a TB capacity! Just kidding, but I bet you were planning on more than 120GB.

Yah, I think they should have gone with a 120/240 GB combo (up from the 80/160 GB of the previous gen).

It's fine, but the click wheel and screen are too close together.

And the res of the screen isn't high enough, ie, too few lines of text on such a big screen.

I used a smaller photo of the new nano, hence the slightly lower res.

I may move the click wheel down if I have a little more spare time, but I think this pic illustrates what updates should have been added to the classic.

Look nice.:D
Maybe with different hard drive capacities though.
Can you make a picture of the back saying 240GB?
That would make me feel happy. XD

Hehe, thanks guys. Maybe I can make a few more mock-ups tomorrow, but for the time being I've got some homework to do (yay, college).

I would have like this. I feel the iPod line up has gotten to big. Too much overlapping.

It might not be wide enough to accommodate the HDD. Sorry to rain on your parade! :o

Agree completely; except for one further matter, namely, you have not told us the intended battery life; preferably, it should be extremely long lasting/living in order to play our extensive music libraries.

WAIT, so with the iPod nano and iPod touch you can make a genius playlist right on it without using iTunes, but you can't do it on the iPod classic?!
That's so not cool.

The mockup's form factor's awesome. I wouldn't complain if the new classics looked like that =)

I'm more keen on the traditional layout for the Classic. But 120gb? Nooo. Moar plx.

Yah, I'm not sure if they could fit the HDD in there myself, but I'm sure those Apple engineers could come up with something :)
