Apple’s comments come some weeks after Toshiba publicly announced that it was already supplying Apple with hundreds of thousands of 60 gigabyte, 1.8” drives per month, an announcement which was subsequently said to have angered otherwise secretive Apple executives. Whether these drives will be used in future music-centered iPods, or in other devices, is currently unknown.
In comments to Reuters, Apple Hardware Product Marketing VP Greg “Joswiak shot down market rumors of 60-gigabyte models in the pipeline. ‘We have no plans in regard to announcing 60-gigabyte models,’ Joswiak said. ‘We are trying to create a much more compelling lineup with two models for 20 and 40 gigabytes at extremely compelling prices.’”
