Apple to do a Flip? New iPods to have image and video capture?
The internet is buzzing with rumours that Apple is about to announce a date for the launch of its next generation of iPods. Apple Insider, and plenty of others now, are hinting that September 8th or 9th will be the big day when the company unveils this year’s nanos and touches.
The big rumour is Apple is about to do a Flip and add image and even video shooting capabilities to its range of players. The obvious move would be to add the 3.2 megapixel camera to the players and maybe even include the iPhone 3G s’ video capabilities. There is speculation that the next gen iPods will also have more storage capacity – which it will need if they shoot large video files.
Also on the cards apparently is iTunes 9 which it is rumoured will include a host of social networking features.
