Apple to launch new iPod next week Apple is getting ready to launch the next generation iPods next week. The next edition of Newsweek will feature an article on the new device. A preview of the article is available at Newsweek website.
The new iPod has an iPod mini feel to it -- the control buttons under the screen are gone, and the features are moved to the ClickWheel. The menus have also been changed to make navigation and playlist creation easier. Despite being thinner than its predecessor, the new iPod should run for 12 hours when fully charged.

The 15GB model will be dropped altogether, and the prices of the larger capacity models will be cut by $100. That puts the price of the 20GB model at $299 and 40GB model at $399.

Engadget has a larger version of the Newsweek cover with a picture of the new Pod. You might also want to check out a picture available at Spymac.

How cool! I was gonna buy a normal 20G iPod, but now I think i'm gonna get this. I know it doesn't hold as much, but heck, I aint gonna need all 20 gigs. I'm gonna put maybe a few hundered songs at the most on it. Why not get one that's smaller, cheaper, and has a longer battery life?
