    I desperately need a new one, mine has gone kaput on me. Any idea when the next ones come out??

    Most people here seem to think that it won't receive any major update until the end of the year pre-holiday buying season. My guess is that they'll probably bump the hard drive size before then but due to the iPhone you probably won't see a major change until 3rd quarter '07. Just a guess though.

    I really hope that it gets updated on June has been a LONG time since an update (and the iPhone makes it look incredibly outdated)...I'm also going away for a month from a week into July, so I would like to hold my whole library (right now I have a 15GB 3G iPod), but don't want to splash out for the 5G :)

    At this point there's no way we'll see a new iPod before the iPhone release. I could see one right around beginning of September like when the Nanos and 5Gs were upgraded last year. But no matter what before Thanksgiving; I'm not 100% but I just can't imagine the iPod getting through this year with a major upgrade to the main line.

    I remember people suggesting not to buy the 5.5G because it was just a slight refresh supposedly not long before a proper 6G model was to be introduced.
    Gosh, am I glad that I got one when they were released.

    I'm sure they'll give the iPhone a little more attention for now. There's no point in hurting its sales.
    Remember, the iPhone isn't even out in Europe until Q4! They'll have to handle that well.
