Piper Jaffray senior analyst Gene Munster has provided an overview of potential product announcements that could be made at next week’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Munster believes that an updated iPod shuffle, expanded iTunes video content, Intel-based Macs, and a new consumer electronics device are all possible.

“We believe it is likely that Apple will announce a new iPod shuffle at Macworld,” Munster said in a research note provided to iLounge. “We believe a new shuffle will have similar capacity to existing shuffles, but a slightly different form factor and potentially a small screen.”

The analyst said he “would be surprised if Apple does not announce new video content offerings” at the event. “We expect new TV shows and, potentially, feature films will be added to the existing offerings available at iTunes,” Munster said.

Munster said we could also expect something completely new from Apple. “We believe it is possible that Apple will introduce some form of new consumer electronics device, continuing on the trend towards being more of an entertainment/media technology company, not just a computer company,” he said.

Haha i’m here yea I think I might sell my shuffle on ebay, because I left the box all sealed up. And since I know each time apple updates something it gets HOTTER. But I doubt apple will put a screen on the shuffle I mean common let’s not be that navie. That doesn’t even make design since and the shuffle is all about NO SCREEN. That’s why it was made. I do hope they make it in black though. MAN THAT WOULD BE HOTTTT.

Isn’t anyone else jonesing for BIGGER video iPods?? I will be very disappointed if at least an 80 Gb doesn’t how up. I’m at less than 2 Gb on my 60 Gb, and that’s just music!

Cygnus X-1 and Johann ... your above comments have nothing to do with the shuffle ...

I am hoping for a wireless media player that will integrate with iTunes and play ITMS protected content.  Sort of like the Airport Express but one that lets you control the content on your stereo/TV and not have to be sitting at your computer to navigate your media.  Oh yeah, and streams video as well as music.  I’ve been wishing for this for a long time, probably won’t happen.

Jeremy Joyner…..This story isn’t just about the shuffle, it’s about what might be announced at Macworld.  You wanna repremand someone, how about your buddy Eljacko.  9 posts and didn’t say much of anything.
