new ipod - wireless or not?

So who thinks the new ipod will essentially be the iphone sans a phone? That is have wireless internet capabilities, but no phone functions.

While I would LOVE that, my sense tells me it won't be that great. I expect a iphone like design but limited to a new iphone touch interface and widescreen video.

Still really nice but not the complete knockout punch the wireless would have been.

No WiFi, no internet. Not an 'Phone sans phone, but just a fraction of the 'Phone.

I'm thinking a 'Pod with 'Phone cues, but that's it.

I'd want it to look like a 'Phone, have a big touch screen with three hardware buttons for Previous, Next, and Play/Pause, Bluetooth, and 80G. That would do it just fine.

I don't see much of that happening, though.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

The new iPod will have built-in MRI technology.

I sure hope it has 802.11G. That would be perfect for a person like me - who leaves it in the car - could sync from my living room smiling smiley

Good Luck!

Seeing as how "wireless" hasn't been of even the slightest help to MS with the Zune, I'm disinclined to think they'll bother. They'll focus on making a great video iPod and leave the wireless for when WiMax and/or other technologies bring us closer to "internet all over town."
