Appleinsider reports that Apple did indeed have plans to introduce more at Macworld San Francisco earlier this month, but pulled those products at the last minute.
According to the rumor site, Apple had iPod and music-related announcements originally scheduled for the event. The exact reason for the termination of the plans is unclear, but Apple is reportedly planning to make the announcement at an event in the near future.
Appleinsider maintains that Apple was planning an iPod Boombox which was previously reported. They expand with a description of a "sleek, single-faced speaker with a rounded grill" delivering stereo sound, complete with wireless iTunes integration.
The term "iPod Boombox" as well as "iPod Hi-Fi" were recently trademarked by Apple.
Meanwhile, one rumor had indeed claimed that some announcements were eliminated from Macworld at the last moment. These rumors, however, implied the announcements were Mac related.
