You're telling me there aren't any? I want to see them!
Probably around the seams... I'd definitely keep it away from water.
Yeah, kind of sup rising we haven't seen anything yet. However, you must consider that last year the iPad was leaked 12-16ish hours before, and we all know the iPhone 4 story. So after all that, I'm sure Apple beefed up its already rigorous security policy and NDAs.
However there is that prototype iPhone 5 missing, so they obviously have not fully rectified the problem.
They are pretty good this year locking everything up.
People are still interested in iPods?! <ducking>
We've seen a white iPod Touch facing leak, as well as an iPod Nano with a camera.
Actual product leaks generally don't happen until much closer to the event. And the media event hasn't even been announced yet.
We are in the post iPod era, hence the lack of leaks.
Good one, there is still a market for pure ipods though. Like the b-day present for my 8 year old neice who got an ipod shuffle this year cause well, she's too young for an iphone/itouch and while my sister lets my neice play with mommy's ipad sometimes she doesn't want her too spend too much time playing games or unsupervised surfing on the internet.
I concur. The iPod Touch will be renamed the iPad Nano and that will be all.
I know all the talk is of iPods not being popular, but selling less units doesn't necessarily mean not popular. They sell millions. It's an integral part of their revenue. People use iPods longer because there isn't the same two years and I'm out attitude as with phones.
There are rumors of an iPod touch with 3G (Personally I'm not holding my breath).
The iPod touch will most certainly get a speed/spec bump to provide optimal performance with iOS 5. I'm not expecting a new design, the current iPT 4 is gorgeous, and as already mentioned the white version seems to be on it's way.
Other iPod models I have no idea. Perhaps more capacity at same price.
Frankly, that's where cellular service should be moving to. Voice plans, SMS plans, voicemail... legacy cruft. Cellular providers should provide data.
Voice can be data.
SMS can be data.
Voicemail can be data.
Everything is data these days. Our phones don't need CDMA/GSM chips or whatever for voice. They need 3G chips and that's it. Data only devices that carry everything over the data channel and through the Internet.
Some would say an iPod Touch with 3G would canabilize iPhone sales thanks to services like Skype. Well it darn should because that is where we should be moving to. Same for Cable TV or Satelite TV or FM radio or whatever. The Internet can provide all of this and all our boxes can be simple IP devices hooked up either through home networking or cellular networking to get services from content/service providers that compete with each other, not from monopolistic carriers.
Let the carriers be data carriers. Let the service providers provide services. All over the same data network.
^^For once I fully agree with you.
However, Apple IMO cannot piss off carriers too much at this point in time. iPhone is still Apple's #1 revenue source.
