As if you need another source "confirming" the launch of new iPods at Apple's September 5th
event, along comes DigiTimes
riding their wave of Taiwanese component manufacturing insiders. According to the folks who brought us the Powerbook G5
, Apple is due to drop a new Inventec Appliances manufactured, flash-based
widescreen "iPod video" with touch-interface (widely rumored to carry the iPod Touch
brand) sporting WiFi
and an iPhone-like UI when it ships "at the end of this month or early October." Also in the cards is a Foxconn manufactured iPod nano with more storage and iPhone-like UI at the same prices as existing models and higher capacity iPod shuffles from Asustek. So yeah, it falls in line with all the other rumors but that doesn't mean we're buying it.
