RUMOR: Apple to announce wireless video iPod in ‘very near future’

“When not only one, but multiple trusted sources get in touch to let us know Steve Jobs & Co. are supposedly finally about completed with the wireless / video iPod, we have to take note. Supposedly they’re preparing to announce the device in the very near future, which we’ve been told is both wireless and widescreen,” Ryan Block reports for Engadget.

  1. Ok, we’ve been hearing about this one for awhile now. So color me dubious.

    But. while I still have my doubts about some the things attributed to this in the press, I for one would be delighted if Apple delivers something that gets those mindless Zune fan-boys to shut up about their “wireless” and “big screen” capabilities – when they are neither big nor capable!

  2. Just fingering a Black Nano which my friend bought this afternoon – what a beautiful piece of industrial design it is..

    And now another marvel is due to be born from the Cupertino birthing rooms.. Apple is unstoppable!

  3. “Very near future”?

    Like, say, MacWorld?

    I really doubt that Apple would announce a “video iPod” before Christmas unless they were ready to ship before Christmas. Why? Because if they announced it and said it’d be shipping in January, iPod sales would tank for the holidays.

    And if “Steve Jobs & Co.” have just now completed the design, the factory has to get ramped up, etc. There’s no way they could have sufficient numbers on the shelves before Christmas.

  4. This is nothing but FUD!

    I expect Microsoft asked them to state this to put off potential buyers of the iPod this holiday season, hoping they will buy a Zune instead.

    I expect to see a widescreen, horozontally held iPod at some point, but not until next year, and not replacing the currently available iPod.
