New iPods September 5th?

Apple may unveil a new line of iPods as soon as the first week of September, according to one report. A photograph of what industry watchers say could be a new line of iPod nanos surfaced earlier this week, but some sources that published the photos were asked to remove them by the Cupertino-basd company's legal team. Engadget reports that Apple plans to unveil new iPods on September 5th, citing sources within the company while pointing to the unusual chosen date for a special event. Apple typically holds such events on Tuesdays, but the coming holiday weekend may have served as incentive for the company to reschedule the day of its presumed special event.

    Wouldn't these need to go out like ASAP so that the press can prepare for travel accommodations?

    New Mini?

    These look more like the Mini than the Nano. perhaps Apple will bring it back from the dead as a more media capable small-ish ipod?

    Ohhh...

    ...between the black iMac aesthetic & these widepod images (if true) I'm starting to wonder if Mr Ive was on vacation this summer...?

    They don't necessarily need that long. Wasn't notice of the iMac announcement about a week or so before it actually took place? They didn't even send out e-mail this last time.

    All the rage in homes now is stainless steel appliances with black trim. The iMac fits perfectly in with that design aesthetic. Sounds like Mr. Ive is on the ball to me.

    Apple used to set the trends - also being 'all the rage' isn't necessarily 'good', although it may appeal to those peecee users who like the 'dark side'... :)

    ohh

    right on, if I wanted something that looks like everything else, I'd get a Sony or something. My Philips flatscreen tv that I bought 2 years ago looks like a giant iPhone. http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/2/23pf9956_12/23pf9956_12_tlf_.jpg I've come to expect more from Apple.

    stainless and black...

    ...is a classic combo. and never goes out of style. the kitchens and homes of apple's halo customers are often decked out as such. they appreciate that esthetic, and it's a natural for them to help sell the new stuff by evangelizing something that matches their lifestyle.

    no glossy screen please!

    I was in an Apple store looking at the new iMac - did Mr. Ive or Mr. Jobs do the same thing?

    All the glare reflecting off the overhead light - sad. Hopefully they will not force this design "feature" on future MBPs - please keep it an option.

    They do look nice aside from that!
