The iPod threads have been pretty slow lately and there isn't much talk or rumor about upcoming or new iPods for this year, save the iPod touch which has had nothing but rumors and guesses from people like me on the iPod touch forum page. Do you think there will be ANY updates in the iPod line up this year? Specifically the iPod nano, classic and shuffle. My View: I think the iPod shuffle is a perfected product, maybe the only perfected product Apple has ever made, or at least the closest product to perfection Apple has created. Sure, anyone can say that they could add more storage, bigger battery, make it even smaller, give it a touch screen and turn it into a device similar to the iPod nano 6 but if it is going to stay affordable, like it was meant to be, Apple will likely leave this iPod be. As for the iPod classic, it is far from perfection at this point. Likely, we won't be seeing an update, and even more likely, this iPod will be discontinued, probably at the release of a 128GB iPod touch/iPhone. Obviously this iPod is in need of some newer technology inside and it is still nearly identical to the 2007 release, minus capacity. Most could say that this iPod deserves a Lightning port and some high speed, less damagable, flash storage/SSD. I think it may be time to face, if the time hadnt't occurred to you yet, that this iPod is sadly a goner. Finally, the iPod nano, my favorite of the three iPods mentioned and explained so far. I love my seventh generation iPod nano, it has tons of great features, some that are not on the iPhone. I love the built in Nike+, the FM radio, and the microscopic size of the iPod nano but I do have to say this product, after seven great models, hasn't been perfected. Some say this iPod will be replaced and forgotten with the release of the much anticipated "iWatch", sure I, myself, am excited for the iWatch but I'm not sure if this microscopic iPod touch deserves to be kicked off the team. This iPod nano has some potential, whether or not Apple will acknowledge that or update it seems to be anyone's guess. Sure, I would love to see another camera, preferably with the ability to capture still photographs, a speaker, an updated operating system but all these things are just becoming a waste for Apple with this declining market.
