    Anyone know what the specs will be for the new iPhone? Will it play iPod videos or will it be yet another resolution?

    The screen dimensions are 480px x 320px. That is, indeed, different from the current iPod's 320 x 240, and all the common AppleTV formats.

    I believe that we'll see a mix of upscaled and native iPhone videos for a while. Eventually, video iPods will follow iPhone's screen dimensions, so we'll probably have a "mobile" format, and a "TV" format.

    Even iPod videos vary: different codecs, old vs. new iTMS res, widescreen vs. 4:3. iPods can handle a bunch of different resolutions, and iPhones can too (with the added ability to zoom-to-fit on demand).
