    NewsWeek have managed to leak a front cover design featuring Steve Jobs holding an iPod with a new design. The iPod appears to have the scroll wheel taken from the iPod mini's and a slightly smaller appearance. Whilst a single picture isn't a lot to go on, many people have said new features will also include multiple colours (not a good idea in my opinion) and larger storage space (virtually a definite, the hard disk manufacturer for iPods recently announced they had been able to make a 60gb model, and Apple got were a bit miffed at them... wonder why? :))

    What's there to support? Surely you just mount it and go?

    They won't, I'd imagine they'll keep the same price range, just up the size's on each model.

    (ie: the price of the 15gb, will now relate to the 20gb model, and the top end model will be the 60gb..)

    what i am curious about is how they will be announcing it tommorow. They say they are going to do something out of the ordinary, i wonder what.

    They'll just make a press release and update the site, I doubt anything spectacular will happen, big announcements are usually made at large conferences such as WWDC.

    That's a photoshopped image ;)

    Well it is still a considerably price cut, its actually half-affordable now :p I'm very tempted...the new design is kick ass.

    Only because they dropped the 15gb model so that you would have to pay $300 for the 20gb :p I was hoping for maybe a price drop where I could get a 15gb for just over $200 ;)

    Well we get to see in a few hours, so we'll see. If they do do something special, it's a shame that NewsWeek have already ruined any element of surprise.
