Apple's Sept. 9th event to bring new iPods, more
With Apple's iPod price cuts already in place, it seems that the company is sure to introduce a revamped iPod lineup at its Sept 9th Music event, which starts today at 10am PST/1pm EST. While Apple has regularly announced new iPods in September, expectations are elevated as rumors indicate that the Touch, Nano and even Classic may be gaining cameras enabling photo and/or video functions. There are, however, conflicting reports about whether the Beatles' music will make its debut on Apple's immensely popular iTunes digital platform.
In addition, the Nano may adopt a taller screen, and it is likely that most iPods (excluding the Shuffle) will be given better storage capacities. The event could moreover see the announcement of iTunes 9, said to support Blu-ray, social networking and possibly even third-party device sync.
