So we already know that Apple has an announcment planned for next week (you can also try scrolling down a couple of posts), but the big question on everyone’s minds is whether or not Apple is finally going to get around to introducing that video iPod we’ve been hearing rumors about for, well, about as long as there’s been a non-video iPod. AppleInsider thinks it’s a go, they’re reporting that Apple has begun production of a video-capable iPod which could (emphasis on the “could”) be unveiled as early as next week. Supposedly the device is slightly thinner than a 60GB iPod and has a small, nano-like click wheel and a large, high-res color display. We’ve gotten false alarms about this one before, but if it’s not a video iPod, what else could merit such a massive media event?
