Although I am supposed to be preparing for a lecture tomorrow morning, I couldn’t help but notice that there are rumours about a totally revamped video iPod. ThinkSecret reported on insider talk about the real video iPod that uses the full front of the iPod for screen space and incorporates a new digital click wheel that appears and disappears when you touch the screen:
Think Secret can confirm recent rumblings that Apple is nearing completion of a completely revamped video iPod that will shed the ubiquitous mechanical click wheel for a touch screen and will sport a 3.5-inch diagonal display.
This video iPod, which has been in development and on the table since before Apple released the 5G iPod last year with video playback, will feature a display that will occupy the entire front face of the device. Sources who have seen the device report that it features a digital click wheel, one that overlays the touch-sensitive display and appears when a finger touches it and disappears when the finger is removed.
If these rumours are true they would only add to the reasons Steve Jobs pisses me off!
