    Well, I accidentially ordered one of Apple's 2006 Quarterly thingy's for a Business Studies Project, that said something along the lines of "Apple expects to release at least four new iPod's in 2007".

    Unfortunatly I don't have the book with me, but I can remeber it really clearly because I had to change something in my coursework, and then I remember thinking... Four? They only have 3 iPod's?

    Dunno if this means anything to anyone... but hope this sheds some more light prehaps?

    I agree with the General (Nice avatar by the way :p). But I wonder where the shuffle will go next, maybe it will get an OLED screen?

    nano 4GB, nano 8GB, video 40GB, video 100GB

    I reckon the Shuffles are still accepted as a new product, so they will have a revision later, maybe before christmas.

    Didn't steve make it clear that the iphone is not an ipod or am i mistaken.

    Oh and maybe the 4 new ipods are the shuffle in january and then the touch, new shuffle, and the new nano.

    Perhaps they aren't replacing the nano, They're offering the video version as a separate iPod entirely. Just a thought.

    I'm pretty sure he said something like "It's the best iPod we've ever made." or similar.

    Sounds reasonable to me. I think the nano will be capped at 8 GB for a little while so it doesn't kill regular iPod and iPhone sales. Hoping they go all out and release a 120 GB or a 160 GB iPod to satisfy the hardcore music listeners. Also giving the shuffle 2 GB or a price drop along with revamped switch to allow for say 2 Playlists and Audiobook/ Podcast modes wouldn't hurt either.

    iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Video (maybe a condensed version, iPod Nano Video), iPod Touch

    Each product will likely be priced around it's current counterpart except for the Touch which will be priced similarly to the iPhone (maybe $399, $499).

    I am expecting:

    Gaming iPod (Semi-Sucessor to the Video, has a screen twice as big, widescreen, two scrollwheels)
    Video iPod Nano - 3 mm thinner
    6g iPod, supports Bluetooth, maybe Wifi. COULD have ALuminum shell
    2gb and 4gb shuffle

    Now, it said AT LEAST 4 new iPods, so lets play SPECULATION TIME!

    My First iPod (Big, plushie iPod, plastic, colourful)
    Earbud-type iPod- Combines a Bluetooth headset and iPod Shuffle
    macPod- A PDA-type iPod, has pullout QWERTY
    Budget iPod (not the name)- A possible budget iPod, think 512-256-128 sizes, b&w screen

    Firmware upgrades:

    iPod Nano G2 supports video now.

    Gaming iPod?? Not going to happen. And to be honest, the shuffle is considered to be the "Budget iPod" in the lineup, and a black and white screen would be taking a step backwards. I can see a 2GB shuffle coming, though. And a PDA iPod with QWERTY keyboard?? Have you heard of the iPhone (which is much much better anyway)

    my 2 cents.
