Ipod2 by the end of 04 into mid 05
By the sounds of it on other mac rumor sights. The ipod 4th generation will come out. It will look a little diffrent. It could have diffrent color choices like the mini. It will feature an easy battery replacement like the Pb. It may be a little thicker but not much. It will cost the same. May have a memory boost but not likely. How far apple has come in the ipod program it sounds like it m may come out in late 2004 to mid 2005.
