    I started thinking a while ago about the possibility of Apple ever releasing a new model of iPod, maybe a replacement for the nano, or one that's a little bigger than it, but not as big as the Classic or touch. Phil Schiller said at the iPhone 4S event that they weren't going to stop making the world's best music players. Thoughts...Opinions?

    I'm guessing that they'll update the nano, at least. If they can get the price of the iPhone (with A4/A5) low enough, they may kill off the iPod touch.

    The shuffle and classic are harder to predict. I'd say at least one more update of both. If the price of flash memory drops, maybe the classic would be replaced by a click-wheel, flash-based iPod.

    Make the current Nano 32GB next year !! But I think this will happen only when the touch will make it to 32/64/128.

    I can't think up anything which would make iPod Shuffle better.

    I think people are missing the point that the OP is asking. They're not wondering about how Apple can further update the current line, they're asking about if it's likely that Apple will introduce a new model into the lineup (for example, discontinue the nano in favor of introducing a new model, much like how they discontinued the mini in favor of introducing the nano).

    Well, they have already kind of discontinued the iPod Nano and made a little iPod touch. Although the name remained the same, it's bigger difference than mini -> nano
