    With the new line of iPods rolling around next month, will they update the iPod Classic with a camera, FM Radio, and speakers like Apple said they would with the Touch? :apple:

    I just don't see a camera going into a hard drive based iPod, seems a little weird. I see FM Radio going in, better battery life, larger screen, and a redesign.

    I still think cameras on iPods are stupid and just an unnecessary expense.

    I could see the point for a touch since it can already use things like Skype, but on a nano or classic it's just not needed.

    Some people where saying they think it would be discontinued or that a redesign would not happen due to the fact it was a classic, are some of you know thinking there will be a redesign? Wouldn't a larger screen take away the classic feel?

    Has anyone got any news on the next Gen classic???

    They'll have to do something to the iPod classic this refresh around. I hope they redesign it and make the screen anywhere between 2.7" to 3.0"

    Kills me, do people really think the classic is ridiculously thick? Heck I thought the dual layer thickness was perfect. [i.e. the 60GB/80GB 5th gen, 160GB 2007 classic]

    Besides who you fooling? As if a camera lens is so huge that it'd make it twice as big.

    That being said, all I care about is a capacity upgrade to 200GB. Don't really care about any other fluff, and the interface is still the best of the iPods.[Ratings on Now Playing screen, very clean and classy]

    Classic is all about capacity and thats all I care about.

    Classic is all about capacity and thats all I care about. Besides apple is so stuck on core beliefs I doubt anything will change on it since its called "Classic". Look at the shuffle, still screen-less.

    An FM tuner on the Classic would be a great addition.

    i can see them just upping the hard drive size and maybe an FM radio. I doubt they will do anything else since the classic will only realistically be around a few more years if that.

    I see the iPod classic redesigned, with an anodized aluminum front and back which means getting rid of the dread scratch prone chrome backing with a larger 2.7" - 3.0" screen. Some new features I see happening is an FM tuner w/ Live Pause, Speaker, and an updating User Interface. The UI has been the same since 2007. Same 160GB capacity.

    iPod touch has had speakers since their second generation available on September 9th, 2008. 3rd generation has been out since September 9th, 2009 and also has a speaker. Maybe you mean 4th generation?

    I doubt Apple will do much to the classic. Maybe a few tweaks here and there.

    I agree. I think it's one of those 'forgotten' products, like the MBA, sadly.

    What i think is that I-Pod's are meant for music so FM getting integrated with an i-pod seems to be more appropriate. Its gonna help attract users and increase sales mo doubt. :rolleyes:

    Apple probably will just update the specs on the iPod classic and just leave the rest alone. We all know that Apple has been putting more focus towards the iPhone / iPod touch lately.

    Do you guys think Apple is making the most profit off of their mobile devices? I sure think so. They're selling their iPad's and iPhone 4's fast.
