    Guessing it will be news on iphone 4 (relaunch or new better fix), possible touch update (which means I will sell mine) and this:



    the new ipod shuffle or nano depends how they market it. but i am guessing shuffle with a new name. As the shuffle is not even on the shelves at most apple stores anymore.

    If its the shuffle again I will be selling me

    I've read a few rumours about the "new shuffle" or "new nano" - a couple of which have suggested it will have bluetooth for connecting to bluetooth headphones, and will incorporate a wrist strap, like a watch. I can see that selling a few million units to gym users/runners etc

    If it was touch screen like a mini iTouch... even better

    it will be touch screen Although to get the most out of it for gym goers it will need to have the ability to like with the nike hardware, which the shuffle doesnt do. I think it should as smaller the better for exercise in my book. The shuffle is fantastic for running and biking.

    it will be interesting to see what they call it, or they use it to replace. It looks too big for a shuffle and the fact it has a screen will mean it wont be a shuffle player. However if it is a nano then it has no camera and the screen maybe too small.

    I am going for a new product name and replacing the shuffle.

    Find out tomorrow

    i think you're probably right Mat... Although I can't help but mention that I thought not so long back you said you weren't going to become an Apple fan boy

    actually... so did I

    They need to do something with the ipod range though, their own success with the ipad and the iphone has killed its sales for definate.

    i think the ipod range is not too bad, it does what its meant to. For example I am very tempted by an ipod as its the best way to get massive storage for all my music. Ideal world though I would have a touch with massive memory, but then no one would buy an ipod classic again.

    The markets are changing and buyers want more from their hardware. some times you do want a phone to just be a phone though.

    Going to interesting as what apple does usually means the rest follow suit.

    Yes I am fan boy I have gone from not liking apple to owning a shuffle, touch, pad, imac and soon phone

    hey I'm not knocking it, I have gone that way too. I'vve gone from nothing to now having shuffle, 2 nanos, and a touch, with a phone hopefully on the way later in the year. Budget and requirements don't quite stretch to the ipad yet but its on the cards

    I agree that the ipod does what it's meant to, but I still think they need to do seomthing with the range, maybe even if they just streamline it so it's only the classic (for large volumes of music) and the shuffle/nano (or a touchscreen hybrid) for those that use it for exercising etc. only reason I mention them needing to do something is after posting that sales of ipods are at their lowest now since 2006, and that income from iPhone sales is now higher than iPods, when there is a greater range of iPods available.

    tonights' event will certainly be interesting thats for sure

    Matt, It's hard not to love apple once you get an iPhone or experience some of there latest creations.

    I have to stop myself from buying other apple products, I don't need them but I bloody want them lol.

    The new line up of iPods look awesome! Shuffle is just the shuffle. The new Nano looks unreal! Nike + added too it and its clip on I want one. Don't need it but I want it.

    The Touch is identical to the iphone per usual. The HDR pictures that you will be able to take on the iPhone & Touch look pretty unreal too.

    I want to buy Apple TV. Don't need it, but I want it.

    I always wanted the nano but it was too big so the shuffle will be replaced for the new nano. The touch will be replaced for a new touch as well, although i am going to hold out for a bigger memory one. If the classic is gone it's going to need the big memory music player gap filling.

    Apple tv is a must
