Pre-orders and previews underway ahead of launch.
Mini iPods, iLife Updates, No New CPUs at MacWorld Expo?
According to the rumor site, the new "pocket-size" iPods will come in various capacities and colors (including stripes). Prices will reportedly start at a mere $100. Colors are also reportedly coming to the current iPod line.
The "music centric" Keynote is also said to bring updates to Apple's various iApps. Updates are reportedly inline for iPhoto, iMovie (to 3.5), iDVD (to 4.0) and iTunes along with possible updates to Final Cut Express (to 2.0). eMagic related announcements are also possible, according to ThinkSecret.
Finally, major Xserve announcements are also predicted for the January expo, but ThinkSecret claims that there will be no new CPU announcements (either desktop or laptop) during the event -- contrary to circulating rumors from Appleinsider.
Previous MacRumors sources reported on iApp updates as well as the possible introduction of a new Application at the Expo. Meanwhile, mini iPod rumors began a few weeks ago on Page 2 with subsequent corroboration from Appleinsider.
