Remember, remember the 5th of September

iPod stocks have not been replenished in two weeks. Rumors point to a big Apple announcement on the 5th of September. All signs point to the new generation of iPods that would seem to carry 16GB of NAND flash memory running on a heavily rewritten OS X platform. Truth be told, the new iPods that allegedly would be launched on the 5th are, to my best guess, what the Asian iPhone owners already have – an iPhone sans the phone capabilities.

Here are the possible iterations of the form the new iPod will take:

The rumor of the iPhone nano will be confirmed? This is highly unlikely, as the iPhone has not even been officially released in Asia. A move like this would definitely undercut sales of the current iPhone that’s not even available in the Eastern part of the globe.

The widescreen iPod nano? With iLife ’08 and the iPhone demonstrating the vast implementation of Coverflow, what is to stop the iPod from implementing this? The new iPod will run on a heavily rewritten Mac OS X and will feature video playback and 16GB of NAND flash memory.

Do yourself a favor — if you’re itching to buy an iPod in the next 11 days, don’t. You will be extremely disappointed.

WiFi-only iPhone would be good.

I wouldn’t want to carry around an iPhone everywhere, and, the reviews say that the voice quality is only so-so, right? (I haven’t tried an unlocked Smart/Globe iPhone!)
