Let's Play The Prediction Game

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

This is my prediction of what is going to happen in just a few hours' time.

There will be two versions of iPod nano: a smaller fat nano (as "leaked"), and a higher-end version that closely resembles current iPod with video, except thinner. Both will run OS X, with CoverFlow and a new interface, but only the higher-end version will play video. Evolution is the key.

And the highest-end iPod? The "first" true widescreen iPod, with a touch screen. Think of it as iPhone lite.

Essentially, Apple will continue to cover the entire price range with products at each step, all the way from the shuffle (no change) to the iPhone (no change).

I predict that there will not be iTunes Store over Wi-Fi, nor will there be radio — digital, HD, or otherwise.

There, that's my prediction. I'm going to bed now. Why does Apple always schedule these kinds of special events in the middle of the night?

See you in the morning.

(If you are still confused, I am going by Singapore Standard Time, which is 1 a.m. when Steve Jobs goes on stage.)
