I was just trying to approach the topic of iPhone updates from a logical perspective. Got any links about the iPod you are referring to or the 3rd party apps thing? The only iPod I was aware was coming soon was the video capable nano. And we already know from the screen shots/movies that it doesn't run OS X.Think i'll plump for the next iPod update, expected in Sept. The reason for this is i see it likely that iPod will run iPhone flavour OS X and so there'll likely be new syncable items, or at least in-line with iPhone. Also expecting downloadable apps on iPod 6G OS X, so expect that to get enabled for iPhone simultaneously. Sure they may not end up sync notes with Tiger and limit that to Leopard, but for the most part i don't think they're waiting on Oct to provide new iPhone functionality.
