Apple insider sites are talking about a new iPod to be released in time for Christmas that has a 60Gig hard drive, a color screen and… video capabilities.
Head Apple Steve Jobs has continuously said the iPod would not become a video player, but reports out of manufacturing plants in Asia are saying something else. The newest iPod will use the current 4th generation form factor, but will be slightly thicker and heavier. A 2-inch color screen and video out jacks make the iPod a photo viewer in addition to music.
Apple is keeping mum, of course, but it is interesting that its other iThings are very specifically named (iTunes, iPhoto, iCal, iChat, iSync, iMovie, etc.) while an iPod could be… anything.
