Think Secret is reporting that Apple’s redesigned iPods are set to be launched around the end of April. The iPod2 will come complete with dock and 15 and 30GB hard drives. Below the display, the new iPod2 has four new round buttons. Think Secret has an artist’s impression of the what the new units may look like.
The 5 and 20GB models are rumored to be discontinued and the new iPod2 release date will reportedly coincide with the launch of Apple’s new online music service.
According to Think Secret, iPod2s will ship with a Dock for FireWire docking and recharging as with a PDA. USB 2.0 will supposedly also be on-board all iPod2s, for Windows users, we surmise. Units are rumored to be in production and due to be announced around the last week of April.
10GB iPod2 SRP is rumored to be US$299, the 15GB iPod2 will be US$399, and the 30GB iPod2 will be $499. Think Secret article here.
