September 1st, the Apple Corporation will be making their September product announcements and what everyone wants to know is if there will be an iPod Touch 4.
Seeing as Apple has just released the iPhone 4 it will be more than likely that the event will announce Apples new generation iPod Touch 4 and a new Nano that may include a touchscreen. Some early rumors also suggest that Apple will also feature their online TV streaming product called the Apple TV.
On Specification upfront, the next generation of iPod Touch 4 is rumored to be equipped with 3-megapixel camera (with video Recording capability) galloping on A4 processor with improved battery life. Unlike iPhone 4, the new iPod Touch 4G is said to have classical rounded back, with a much anticipated camera with a flash. iPhone 4 features like accelerometer and gyroscope might also come that will add gaming credential to the much anticipated media player.
The new device also could include more storage capacity. The largest available currently for iPod Touch is 64GB, on the model that sells for $399.
“Apple is developing a data center in Maiden, N.C., that we believe could serve as the hub of a cloud-based service for iTunes content streaming to connected devices,” Mr. Munster. “We believe an announcement at the September event is likely, but the service may not begin until late in calendar year 2010. With Apple’s growing family of connected devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, and Macs) it only makes sense that Apple would deliver a cloud based media service to leverage its competitive advantage in the space: devices.”
The company is rumored to be in talks with major networks with an eye to offering TV episode rentals through a service that would be called iTV. Apple’s current settop service, Apple TV, has largely failed to catch on with consumers.
Another curious report is circulating that Apple is toying with the idea of using their touchscreen technology to the smaller iPods, the nano. The new iPod Nano is once again rumored to be changing its look from the rectangular to a more square one which is similar to the nano a few generations ago. We can expect Steve Jobs to clear the air on Wednesday and maybe even have a few surprises up his sleeve.
