iPod to Get Cover Flow

Apple is planning to add its much-vaunted Cover Flow visual album browsing to the iPod through a firmware update, according to a video provided by an anonymous source. The feature would all but mirror the feature introduced first in iTunes 7 for computers and later in the still unreleased iPhone, giving the first alternative to text-based menus since the iPod was first born in 2001. Although details of exactly when and how Cover Flow would be triggered were not revealed, the video suggests that the interface change occurs when browsing albums, reverting back to the familiar control scheme when a particular album is chosen.

The source also claimed that there would be no truly new iPods before the iPhone's release in June, allowing the cellphone to take center stage. Read through to see the video itself. [via Gizmodo]
