    Does anyone think that the new range of iPods will come with thunderbolt compatibility?

    Syncing would be unbelievably fast with a thunderbolt cable.

    Obviously very few computers have thunderbolt atm but it is a serious threat to USB (2 and 3)

    I doubt it. While it would provide a faster connection to the computer, it would be expensive, and the memory in the iPods now can't even saturate a USB 2.0 connection, so it wouldn't actually be faster.

    I think its more likely they implement WIFI to support Wifi syncing like in IOS5.

    I'd put money on neither happening. ThunderBolt because of power, heat, and price; wifi because of size.
