RUMOR: 6G touchscreen Apple iPod (iPhone sans phone) coming Tuesday?

Apple Store“An unconfirmed tip points to the possibility of an iPod update as early as tomorrow, with a touch-screen iPod taking center stage,” Think Secret reports.

Think Secret reports, “The information, which comes from an unproven source, suggests that Apple will show off the new iPod tomorrow but will hold off on shipping the device until later in June when the iPhone ships.”

“While the timetable contradicts tips passed on from more reliable sources, which have said not to expect a 6G iPod until later this year at the earliest,” Think Secret reports.

  1. What Apple doesn’t need is a new iPod which will compete with the iPhone for components. So were Apple to introduce an iPod with an iPhone-sized display, there will be hell to pay as conventional wisdom predicts Apple will have a long and large backorder of the more lucrative communications device.

  2. Why would Apple announce the 6G iPod now when it’s not due till June? It is the complete opposite of how Apple operates. Also, who would buy an iPod between now and then if such an announcement is made?

    In related news, Toyota announces the Prius Prus +. It will be the most economical car ever produced. The gas mileage is expected to be well over 200mpg and it will cost under $10k with all options. It will become widely available in 2 months.

    In other related news, undetered by the latest announcements, crowds line up to buy the last of the “inefficient” Toyota Prius. Toyota stock price rockets to record high.

  3. Don’t look for a 6G iPod until around September, otherwise it would cannibalize iPhone sales (and vice versa) at launch. This rumor makes absolutely ZERO business sense (as do most rumors actually). Thankfully, Apple knows a lot more about how to run a business than these idiots that create senseless rumors like this.

  4. If a new model was ready and say it had touchscreen technology, would Apple release it now or after the iPhone? If released after the iPhone it could get lost in the avalanche. If released now, I don’t see it having any real effects on iPhone sales, in fact I doubt Apple will be able to keep up with demand on the iPhone anyway.
    So yea maybe it is a possibility.
