More From Kevin: New iPods on Sept. 9 + iTunes 8 to Include Recommendations

Following up his big blog rumor-fest with an appearance on This Week in Tech (TWiT), Kevin Rose filled in a few details, including that the supposed new Nano, face-lifted iPod Touch, and 2.1 firmware (presumably) would drop on September 9 at a Special Apple Event (or perhaps that the invitation for the special event would be issued on the 9th, it wasn't crystal clear).

In addition, when bullied by Laporte and Dvorak, Rose -- who said he feared criticism if he were wrong -- revealed that one of the major new features in iTunes 8 could be song recommendations, perhaps similar to how Pandora or Last.fm work. He also said he'd heard the iTunes Unlimited subscription rumor was false.

Is Rose dead wrong? Startlingly right? We'll know for sure in a few weeks!

If iTunes 8.0 was supposed to support subscriptions but that's now DOA what's the point of moving to naming the next release 8.0? The new products may support additional features but I doubt anything radical, like a forward facing camera, is on the way. Since 7.X is only a few months old my senses tell me that Kevin's accuracy rating is stuck at 0 where it has always been.

NEW IPOD/IPHONE. LET'S ROCK.
I JUST SAW A COMMERCIAL ON TV IN ST. LOUIS MO 8 PM WHICH SHOWED A NEW AT&T PHONE AND IT WAS A COMBINATION OF AN IPOD AND IPHONE. IT LOOK LIKE AN IPOD AND THEN FLIPS OPEN TO BE USED AS A PHONE. THIS WAS BLACK AND THEN HAD ORANGE ACCENT COLOR. I DON'T THINK THE COMMERCIAL WAS TO BE SEEN YET.
