I overheard at the Apple Store from a group of customers that Apple WILL NOT release a widescreen iPod. Apparently, from what I heard, Apple does not want to take away sales from their iPhone by making a WS video iPod. Doing so, Apple believes, will make people buy the $250-$350 WS iPod and not buy the iPhone, which costs $500 to $600, which in turn would draw down sales of the iPhone. Instead of releasing a widescreen iPod, Apple plans to release a slimmer version of the current iPod w/ video with a hard drive capacity of 80GB and 100GB. However, this is speculation and might not be true (I hope it's not cause I REALLY want a widescreen iPod). Hope for the best. Prof.
