in General Discussion edited January 2014
I've heard lots of rumors and theories about the next iPod. Some people say it will have a camera, blue-tooth, wireless safari, full touch screen and front row built in.



I think it might look something like this



Alot of rumors are flying around and I just wanted to see what some of you thought about it.



Thanks.

    It's likely... but what's first? iphone? or the 'real' video ipod? why not both, in the same thing? hmm?

    I think it's pretty much anyone's guess at this point.

    well, if apple included a 4MP camera with flash on every ipod video that would be killer. i have the "firm belief" that ipod's touch wheel would be a good way to operate a digital camera and the massive hard drive makes it very convenient.



    i think ipod + camera could be elegant, while ipod + phone could be messy. mainly because of the interface issue.

    I agree. I heard that Apple is gonna put tons of tiny camers into the screen so you can do video confrencing etc...

    Here's the big feature: cheaper 4, 8, and 16GB NAND variants. NAND memory is getting really cheap, even in small quantities. I wouldn't be surprised if the 4G takes place of the 1G, the 8 the 2, and so on, without prices changing.



    The 16GB Nano will bury the Zune without being anything other than 1000 times more stylish.

    it's not a matter of being sexy. it is technically feasible to merge two devices (Treos, for example).



    the real problem is designing a user interface that satifies the two devices without creating any shortcomings for either the mp3 player and the phone.



    don't get me wrong. i like treos fine, my dad has one and i think it is a cool device.



    but with treos, you have a bulky, fat phone, thus compromising the phone, and you have a "graffiti area"-less palm, thus compromising the pda. i think both devices suffered inconveniences from the merging.



    i just hope that if apple ever does make an ipod + phone we don't see any of the two devices suffer shortcomings that make it harder to interface with them.
