“Apple Seen Unveiling Video iPod at Macworld Expo”
Reuters’, Duncan Martell reports on the upcoming Macworld conference in San Francisco. The report cites analysts guessing at what Apple may introduce at Macworld. One such device may be a new and improved iPod with video capabilites.
“Apple is—as always—tight-lipped about its plans, but it may unveil a version of its popular iPod music player that will play movies, said analyst Rob Enderle of Giga Information Group.
Another possibility, though far less likely, is a handheld personal digital assistant, but Enderle said that product will not come next week.”
