Upon request I have taken the responsibility of making a making a thread merging all of our rumored theories and thoughts about the iPods for the September update. Yes I know there is already a thread for the Apple September update but that has turned into conversation only about the Macs. ---------------------- So just don't talk about the MB, MBP, MBA, or Mac Tablets here. I don't care if you talk about the iPhone, just make sure you're referring to the iPhone Nano or something like that. ---------------------- Here is what a lot of this conversation is going to be about. 1) iPhone Nano 2) iPod Nano Touch 3) iPod Nano being longer/taller 4) iPod Touch Memory upgrade 5) iPod Classic Memory upgrade 6) iPod Classic Merging with Touch 7) iPod Shuffle Memory upgrade If you have any other ideas for this thread please tell me. ---------------------- Here is what I think will happen to each product: iPod Nano - Ahh the Nano. So much stuff about it has been going around. I think there will be a 16GB model for $199. I also believe it may merge with the touch. And these "iPhone Nano" rumors... I guess we'll just have have to wait and see. If the "iPhone Nano" does happen I think it won't have many Apps, and may be like the basic iPhone. iPod Touch - I have loved this from the start but, it never had enough memory for me. I think that it will have a 64GB model and the 16GB model to start at $299. I believe that it may gain side buttons, a camera, gps, and possibly an HD screen. iPod Classic - Wow, I have never separated from having a hard drive based iPod. Their large amount of memory is what gets me. Many of you may not agree with me, but as of this year, it's here to stay.I think it's safe to say that we are still going to be able to to see this for another year or two. As of this year, it's here to stay. The iPod Classic will probably come in a 160GB model or a 250GB. Since a lot of the iPods normally double in size, I would normally say a 320GB model would be next, but that would be big leap from 160GB. I think that next year, the Classic will merge with the touch because by that time the iPod Touch will probably have a 128GB hard drive (or at least something like that). I would like to think that the classic will get a better battery life this time around. iPod Shuffle - Wow, I hate this thing. Not being about to search by artist would make me want to die. But even though I don't know you would be able to control have this much music without a screen, I think they may come put with a 4GB model for $99. ---------------------- Here are links to some of the previous threads about this kinda rumor talk: iPod Classic: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=536812 http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=536671 iPod Nano: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=533968 http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=538654&highlight=iPod+touch iPhone Nano: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=536762 --------------- So what do you expect in future iPods for fall 2008? Would you buy an iPhone Nano? Do you think the Classic will go off the market? How great do you think it will be to have a 64GB Touch? Share you thoughts!
