iPod Line Revamp? iPod Nano Redesign Revealed

According to retailer reports, an almost certain iPod line revamp is coming in September. That seems pretty likely, as Apple seems to favor September for iPod launches. At the same time, reports of actual iPod nano details have arisen.

Mid-week reports arose of retailers such as Target showing current models of iPods as discontinued when scanned through their PDAs. Finally Lehman Brothers analyst Ben Reitzes restated his claim that the iPod Touch needs a repositioning (it clearly does, with the new subsidized iPhone 3G pricing):
"We continue to believe Apple will need to reposition the iPod touch line in conjunction with its anticipated new product announcement in early to mid-September now that the iPhone acquisition price is lower."
Topping things off rumor-central-wise? Digg founder Kevin Rose's blog post detailing some of the same rumors, as well as a picture of what he says is the redesigned nano.

Latest rumors: - Revamp of entire iPod line. - Small cosmetic changes to Touch, Nano to see significant redesign (see pic below). - iPods to see fairly large price drops to distance itself from the $199 iPhone. - iPod touch 2.1 software, iPhone to get update very soon after. - iTunes 8.0 ("it's a big update w/new features"). - All of this coming in the next 2-3 weeks.


What, the iPod Touch gets 2.1 first!? After all, that is rumored to have the 3G fix in it (and it darned well better, too).

I like it... I wonder if there's a strap that you can use to put it on your forearm?

Then again, didn't some of the old ones catch fire? My arm strap idea suddenly sounds reminiscent of those suicide bombs the Predators wear.

 It seems kinda back n forth with everyone here but I am one more for the "don't think I like it" side -- it looks...cheap?

My first gen Ipod nano still runs like a champ. I keep it in my car so if it was going to blow up it would have on one of the 100F days we had last month here.

new nano looks weird. but the wrist strap might be an interesting accessory as this would be OK as a wristband video player. probably be way over priced considering what $100 buys from Samsung, Creative or Sandisk...

It might look better in person. It just looks weird and cheap in the pic.

Yeah. I'm not a huge fan of the way the ipod look now either, minus the touch.
