For Apple’s Next iPod, Rumors Abound

The air of mystery surrounding Apple’s next iPod generation is diminishing by the day now, as leaked pictures and cease-and-desist orders are bringing more and more light to what the next iteration of the ubiquitous MP3 player will be.

During the past week tech blogs Gizmodo and CrunchGear have both received letters from Apple demanding that they remove pictures, which Apple claims are “intellectual property,” of what is believed to be the next iPod Nano. The pictures showed an iPod Nano that appeared as an iPod Video, but wider and shorter.

This picture surfaced on CrunchGear yesterday:

While the image is very likely a product of Photoshop, it bears striking resemblance to the images Gizmodo and CrunchGear pulled.

CrunchGear also cites rumors of touch-screen iPods – basically an iPhone without phone functionality.

Apple is planning a press event for September fifth; many believe this is when Apple will introduce the next iPod generations.

  1. Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher 🙂 Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.

    Check out the video they have on the page.

    Cheers
