Apple preparing for launch of new iPod range

There seems to be new rumours and information coming out on a daily basis about the future of the iPod these days, and the latest is that Apple is asking resellers to place at least 4 weeks worth of orders for their top selling models as supplies will start to become limited in the coming weeks.

We have talked about the supply shortage of the iPod Touch before, but now it seems that it covers the whole iPod range, which could be a sign that Apple is preparing for a complete relaunch of the entire iPod range in time for the peak christmas shopping season starting from early to mid september.

What exciting times if we will see an overhaul of the entire iPod product line, and not completely unexpected either. This comes on top of news yesterday that code in the new iPhone 2.1 firmware had indication of coming iPod Touch upgrade.

We will continue to cover this story as it progresses from rumours to reality.

You can now read our summary report on the launch of the new generation iPods here.

    Dear ipodrepublic,

    Please review this patent pending iPhone/iPod/iPad product.

    It is the sync/charging cable with an integrated powerful battery power backup. It also is a surge protector to protect the users investment especially for the new iPad.

    We have now expanded the XP1Power capability with the Universal XP1-2500AP product and the iXP1 interchangeable connector adapters. The product provides battery backup and charging for virtually all smartphones/cellphone,GPS, PDAs, wireless headsets, Mifi, camera’s, MP3 Players, gaming controllers, and more. The iXP1 interchangeable connectors are sold separately from the Universal XP1Power however there is one microUSB iXP1 connector adapter include in the purchase of the XP1-2500AP Universal XP1Power cable. The pricing is $49.99 for the Universal XP1-2500AP and the iXP1 connector adapters are $4.99 each. A 30 inch extension cable is priced at $7.99 as well.

    Also we have added surge protection so users can protect users investment in their attaching devices. This should be a feature very important to iPad users because the iPad is packaged with one Apple sync/charging cable and an AC adapter. If users use the AC adapter without a surge protector they are putting the unit at risk from a power surge.

    Please let me know if I can provide you any additional information. The new website is http://www.ixp1.com.
