Hours prior to Apple's October 12, sources have clarified to Think Secret recent confusion surrounding Apple's iPod announcement today. In brief: the iPod will be feature video playback capabilities but it is not the video iPod and Apple may not bill it as such. Additionally, Apple will announce a content partnership with the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) and possibly other broadcasting companies that will make content available for download to Apple's device, as noted yesterday.
The new iPod will look nearly identical to current models but will feature a 2.46-inch display with a 320x240 resolution, about half an inch larger than the current iPod. The video playback capability, which sources say is in fact available in current models but is disabled, will be geared towards watching broadcast content, video podcasts, and other shorter videos, but Apple will not be offering movies to purchase at this time. Instead, the company is hoping to roll out a movie store later in 2006 when the "real" video iPod, which will sport a larger widescreen display wrapped in a new casing, will debut.
Think Secret has also not been able to confirm with 100 percent certainty the capacity of the new iPods, which will be either 30GB and 60GB or 40GB and 80GB, although it seems more likely now that the latter configurations, as originally reported, will be delivered. Pricing will remain at $299 and $399 with two colors at each price point.
In related news, in an effort not to detract from today's iPod announcement -- iPod revenue now accounts for a third of Apple's total revenue -- Apple is expected to deliver the rumored upgrades to its Macs either later this week or early next, sources said.
[Updated] -- Added 2.46-inch screen information
