The rumor mill has it that Apple will be releasing three new versions of the iPod in 2007 with one of them being a "real" video type iPod. I am hoping that these "new" iPods will be something completly new rather than just tweaked versions of the existing stuff like they have been doing a lot of lately!

Oops Rumors again. Apple is getting more popular these days for rumors more than anything else.
Will these 3 new versions you just mentioned would be for iPod or iPhone? or they plan to bring out iPhone as upgraded iPods . Who knows they might do that as well.Lets hope for something good coming out of the store.

I wonder how long Apple will be able to keep going with the iPod brand before it starts getting stale? Peopl will eventually get tired of all the reiterations of the iPdo and will begin to look elsewhere if Apple doesn't take a drastic turn sometime in the near future!

For now they still have my vote and thereforee my money!

If current market habits are any indicator, they can keep going with the existing iPod look and feel for some time, just making minor tweaks along the way. I give it another two years that they can milk this brand before having to come up with something completly fresh and new!

I can't wait to see what name they come up with for this next generation!

when people buy an MP3 player they buy an IPOD because its an IPOD. While the features DO matter Im 100 percent sure that people will not stop buying them because of the lack of features. Since they are adding features you are saying that when They run out of features people will look elsewhere for MORE?

It's also Apple's style to put out major tweaks that aren't necessarily reinventive but are different and good, if not better. I could totally see them putting out a widescreen touchscreen iPod in the fall.

why try to fix something that isn't broken?

yes tweaking and refreshing the device is needed, but making something revolutionary in response to something such as the ipod, AND be successful is a hard step to take...

i think a widescreen multi-touch ipod would be killer though

I think it'll be awhile until we see this.

essentially that would mean Apple would need to re-create the entire iPod. Most people who are asking for the iPhone but without Internet features or phone features or what not are forgetting the extra costs of those components in negligble--it's the iPod portion (read OS X and the graphics subsystem) that's the most expensive. Maybe January of next year but I wouldn't expect it until Flash memory drops in price, too.

I really think that the next iteration of the iPod will incorporate the touchscreen/widescreen features of the iPhone. I think they will be able to trade out all the phone features for a HDD to make a real video iPod. Hopefully...

i definitely agree.

AT&T has always sucked a major nut/s.
