Newsweek shows new iPod?
Steve Jobs is holding a new iPod, due for release Monday, on the cover of the July 26th issue of Newsweek. The new version of the iPod features a similar click-wheel to the iPod mini, 12 hours of battery life -- achieved through better conservation of power rather than a larger battery -- and multiple on-the-go playlists, among other features detailed in the cover story. The 20GB model replaces the 15GB for $300, while the 40GB model drops $100 to $400. There's no word on whether a rumored 60GB version will be announced or available at a later date. [updated]
