So, this’ll probably be the next model I get. My current iPod is stuttering occasionally, and will probably have to be replaced before too long.
From engadget.com, the latest news:
New iPod announced! The new iPod, as speculated, features video capabilities and the wider display, but itâ€™s still a music-first device.
The device will feature a 2.5-inch display, QVGA resolution (320 x 240), and will MPEG-4 h.264 (natch), and presumably Quicktime.
The new iPod will be 30% thinner than the current 20GB iPod (making it 0.44-inches thickâ€”say wha?), and will feature a 60GB version (which should be thinner than the current 0.63-inch thick 20GB iPod), and editions of both in black.
The 20GB should go for $299, and the 60GB for $399. Theyâ€™ll be shipping next week.
Whatâ€™s the device named, you ask? The iPod. Thatâ€™s it, just The iPod. Well spare you the Prince jokes. The iPod will have TV out.
Stevie has iTunes 6.0 up thereâ€”only about a month after introducing iTunes 5.0.
iTunes 6.0 will also feature video and the iTunes Music Store will feature video downloads (big surprise, right?)â€”at launch over 2,000 music videos will be made available at a cost of $1.99 apiece.

they’re as gay as piss and a complete waste of money.
Thanks for that, Anonymous.
I own an iPod, 3rd generation. Is that one also ‘as gay as piss’? How gay is piss? And how do you know?
o that’s just what someone said to me at apple’s launch last week. admittedly, it probably sounds funnier when it’s said in thick a brummie accent but it made me chuckle.
(fyi: piss is gayer than kd lang but not as gay as john travolta.)
I want wun anyway. Don’t care about gay and piss much.
Yeah, I think this is getting a little out of hand.
I’m not that down with ‘censorship’ but I feel I may have to exert a little editorial control.
As to the video ipod, I think it’s quite good… but I still feel that the PlayStation Portable would be a better choice. It has a much more impressive screen, and can play the new Grand Theft Auto game!
