new devices coming eventually?

with today's big news concerning the iPod and iTunes, i got to wondering about something. iirc, when apple signed the contract granting them rights to the OS on the iPod, there was a specific term within that contract granting apple the right to place that OS on 2 further devices. i don't imagine that was for naught. is my memory good, or faulty. and do others think it a safe bet that given that option, apple will build something to put the OS on?

the ipod's OS is very rudementary and not very powerful/expandible compared with something like the Palm OS.

I think that Apple was just keeping a nice buffer zone, so to speak, (assuming your information is correct) just in case the need presented itself for the iPod's OS to be put on another device.
Most powerful is he who has himself in his power.
To be conscious that we are perceiving or thinking is to be conscious of our own existence.
