    With the 'iPod' app now gone from the iPhone, and the fact there is no iPod touch in the iOS5 code mean that the iPod is now taking a major backseat, with maybe a silent release January time while iPhone and iPad are updated together (an iOS event, if you will) in September?

    Just because Apple hasn't put any reference to iPod5,1 in the iOS5 beta 1 doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Maybe they got smart and removed the references.

    Don't you know they put these references in there just for fun? Just add a string to some list that does nothing, and a whole lot of people freak out. And Apple developers are having a laugh.

    Yet left their two biggest iOS products in the code? Ok...

    Is it possible that the iPod and iPhone strings are the same? I mean the hardware is almost identical, and with iMessages it just got a little bit closer.

    Could there be a NoPhone string hidden in there somewhere? So from a software perspective, the iPod will literally be an iPhone without a phone.

    Its possible that the iPod Touch 5 has a special build that doesn't share the same source code as the rest of iOS. I don't know, I'm not an Apple person.

    Nope, the two (three) versions of the iPhone 4 are all listed there and they are even closer then the iPod Touch and iPhone.
