Steve Jobs: We're working on the best iPods that we've ever worked on... and they're AWESOME. Interviewer: Ok! Moving right along... what phone are you carrying? Steve Jobs: [ flashes the iPhone, puts it back away] Best iPod we've ever made, best phone we've ever made! In the same breath Steve Jobs refers to the iPhone as the best ever iPod, and the new iPod as the best ever. This means one of two things: 1) either they are ditching the iPod for iPhone entirely. 2) or the new iPod will be like the iPhone without the phone (ie touch screen, widescreen etc) To all the people who say this will never happen: 1) a 80gb+ iPod is nowhere near the same market as the 8Gb iPhone. If the iPhone had a big harddisk I'd agree, but no. 2) they've spent a lot on R&D developing multi touch etc. They'd be mad to not use that investement in other products, 3) the iPod is in need of an updae, and everyone is really excited about the iPhone. I predict a new video iPod in time for christmas at the latest.
