It's that time again! What goodies will we get from Apple in the upcoming year? We never really know until Jobs makes his announcements, but today iLounge has put together an impressive set of speculations. We know--it's all just rumors, nothing to get too excited about--but it's always fun to play the guessing game. Here's the rundown of what iLounge thinks is up:
We've all heard the rumors that the iPad is getting downsized, sometime around Christmas. iLounge says more specifically that we'll get a 7-inch tablet later this year or early next.
iLounge pretty much describes the expected: three new iPod models are supposedly ready for release in September. The new devices include a new iPod touch, iPod nano, and supposedly, a new iPod shuffle. The new shuffle might even get a tiny touchscreen. iLounge's report also states that we'll get a three-inch touchscreen with a higher resolution screen in an iPod somewhere, as opposed to the current 3.5-inch iPhone/iPod touch screen.
To resolve the antenna issue, iLounge reports that the fifth-generation iPhone may be slated for as early as January. Whether this will be a serious update or just an antenna fix, they aren't speculating. Perhaps it will correspond with the Verizon iPhone? Who knows!
We've got some bumper rumors, too. It's possible Apple will manufacture a cheaper, silicon bumper, and start packing them right in with the iPhone. Oh, how we miss the days when Apple actually gave us accessories out of the box (the first generation iPod came with a case and a remote, after all!).
Do you believe any of the rumors? Let us know what you think in the comments!
