    although im not going to purchase any new ipod after i heard about the upcoming iphone updates, i do have one question.

    any reason why the classic isnt in colors?
    are we going to see colors in a few weeks, like the shuffle (just silver at first then colors)?

    'Classic' ipods didn't come in Silver or Black either, which by the way are both colours. ;)

    Wow, even though Apple released some great iPods today the OP still had to complain about something. He's not gonna buy but he still is ranting about colors that don't exist. :p

    Also it depends on the demographic that's buying the iPod. The Nano ships in many colors because many teenagers, kids, women and even ages 18-25 will buy on looks alone. The iPod classic appeals to ages 18-50 and that's why it comes in those basic colors. Can you see your 50 year old dad with a pink iPod classic? :D

    Technically, they're gradients. ;)

    I can't see Apple adding any tint to them, unless there will be a (PRODUCT)RED version.

    I think its fine...in line with Apple's line...and keep a music based iPod around.




    But one can savely say Apple's white age is over!

    On a side note, doesn't iPod Classic just ring iPod Old? Doesn't fit with the modern/hip feel of the iPod to me...

    Easy answer:

    The classic is a manly man's iPod. We don't need no stinkin' colors except black and silver.
