Last-minute rumor suggests new Nano case material

On the eve of Apple's music-themed event, speculation regarding potential product announcements has lead to several fresh rumors. Daring Fireball blogger John Gruber mentions several claims suggesting the iPod nano might be updated with a redesigned case featuring "some sort of top-secret new material," adding to earlier reports of a camera upgrade.

Other sources suggest the Nano refresh will also integrate an FM tuner. Both Nano rumors have been categorized by Gruber as "not-good-enough-to-bet-on but worth-mentioning rumors."

The iPod touch has been the center of attention for most of the claims. Leaked videos, photos and case designs point to the addition of a camera. The device is expected to get other internal upgrades as well, potentially bringing its performance on-par with the iPhone 3GS.

Keeping with the music theme, Apple could be ready to introduce iTunes 9 and a new full-album format codenamed Cocktail. Conflicting sources have provided several reports regarding Beatles music finally making it onto iTunes. Sky News accidentally slipped a story with Yoko Ono's confirmation that the music is on its way to Apple's portal, although the page was quickly pulled.

    Cardboard case...

    made from recycled iPod boxes. Light in weight and very green-centric. I'm just glad I'll be getting an upgraded Touch and I hope it has a mic and video recorder with a 3GS-class processor.
