It's interesting that the colors only really relate to the Nano, not the shuffle or anything else. The iphone nano rumors may come true:http://www.t3.com/news/apple-prepari...ne-nano?=42103
and the iphone can come in a variety of colors.

That's what I'd do. The whole PC industry has jumped on the slate idea and brought out products to take attention away from Apple and they've just shown blatantly how they are tailing them even when they bring out products first. That's why I think if there's going to be a slate input, it should just be an iphone/ipod docking display.
This way Apple can ship more ipods/iphones with OS 4 and (restricted) multitasking and not give people the dilemma of choosing between an iphone and a tablet - few people can afford both.
It will be what the 24" Cinema display is to the Macbook Pro. The main device is portable but you get a bigger screen when you need it. It simply needs a screen, big battery and SD memory as well as the speakers and microphone for incoming calls.
This way people who already have an ipod/iphone get a very cheap slate and there's still the incentive to buy the new one as the Cortex A9 + PowerVR will run so much more smoothly. This also gets round any data contract issues as it's using the phone contract you already pay for to go online.
