The Touch Screen iPod in September?

Never one to rest on its laurels, the Apple rumor mill is hard at work resurrecting a piece of gossip sure to please those who love the iPhone interface, but hate the paltry amount of room for music. Yes sir, the touch screen iPod rumor is back with a vengeance. Of course, now the touchtastic iPhone lends more credence to the rumors, and even Steve Jobs himself has said that a new iPod was in the works that would run an embedded version of OS X, just like the iPhone does. Though he said nothing of a touch screen, we can only assume (with fingers crossed).

Apple insider, Digitimes, and Wall Street analysts are batting around the suggestion that the new iPods will land at the Macworld conference in January of '08, or perhaps even earlier. We at Switched honestly feel a little left out of the rumor mongering, so here's our two cents: We think sixth generation iPods will land in September.

Every year like clockwork, Apple refreshes the iPod line, even if for a minor update like last years increased capacity and brighter screen. And every year the announcement comes in either July or September (check Apple's press release library). Seeing as how July is halfway over and Apple hasn't started promoting a press event, we're betting all in on September.
