Next-Generation iPod Model Number List Revealed?

AppleInsider reports on a tip from a reliable source detailing the forthcoming iPod model updates to be introduced today. The source, who has also provided reliable information to MacRumors in the past, reveals a list including updates to Apple's iPod nano, iPod classic, and iPod shuffle lines, but makes no mention of the iPod touch, an omission that may be related to last-minute production problems with camera modules.

The list includes iPod nano models in both 8 GB and 16 GB capacities, each available in the same nine colors currently available in existing models. Also included are 160 GB iPod classic models in the same silver and black colors found on existing models, but increased in capacity from the current 120 GB offerings. Finally, iPod shuffle models in 2 GB and 4 GB capacities are listed in several colors. It is unclear whether the new iPod shuffle models correspond to the latest version introduced in March in 4 GB capacities in silver and black or to earlier-generation models that have continued to be offered in 1 GB capacities in multiple colors.
