Size options next for iPod Touch with rumours of 9in screen

Several online sources have been reporting on the rumor about a 9in iPod Touch being under development from Apple. Some call it the iPod Tablet, an oversized iPod Touch with the option of a 7in or 9in screen for better viewing.

The large screen iPod Touch/iPod Tablet comes as the Mac/iPod world prepares for the annual MacWorld event in San Francisco, an even that will take place without Steve Jobs apparently, fueling further rumours about the Apple CEO’s health. It is however not expected that Apple will announce any launch of the overgrown iPod Touch/iPod Tablet at MacWorld, but rather at the annual iPod event in September, which last year saw the launch of the new 2nd gen iPod Touch and the new 4th gen iPod Nano.

What might make this rumor more real than the hundreds of other new products rumors around Apple is that their recent focus on mobile and gaming for their touchscreen models, and to compete further with the likes of Sony and Xbox they could do with a larger screen version for better viewing.

An independent online source close to Apple is rumored to have tested a prototype of the iPod Tablet, and that Apple are in talks with Asian suppliers for the production of the iPod Tablet/large screen iPod Touch.

We will come back with more news as soon as we hear anything more.

    I wish apple would announce a larger GB and screen, I am torn between the Ipod touch 32GB and the Archos 5 – 60GB PMP, I actually purchased the Archos 605 160GB on boxing day, got it for $276 canadian at future shop, I returned it after one week, because of additional cost for add ons and limited wiphi zones and short battery life. When I researched the ipod touch 32GB I was plesently suprised with a 36 hour batt life, and ample memory, but the cost of $400 has me in limbo, if they had a 64GB with a larger screen I would not hesitate. So I’ll wait and hope that it’s introduced in the near future.

    Yes there is a new iTouch, but it’s 8in with bigger GB. the biggest being 80GB. There will be a video camera. The price will remain the same for the 16gb, and 32gb, but the bigger the GB the pricier. No more 8gb. There will be a satelite radeo, but not XM. Apple is working on there own.

    This info will be released in September, and the actual products will be released in October.
