Updated: Apple Store is down, start the speculation!

The Apple Online Store is down and while normally Wednesday night would trigger "it's just maintenance" mode in me, there are announced products still awaiting "go live" status like the white iPhone 4! Seriously, though, that's delayed until the end of the year but there's still the 27" LED display, and all sorts of rumors about new Apple TV/iTV and 7" iPads that it's worth taking the gamble on a post.

Of course new iOS-related hardware is usually preceded by Steve Jobs showing it off on stage, so the odds of anything really surprising are low, low, low, but give us your best guess anyway.

Will there be anything new when the Apple Store comes back up, and what?

Updated: Nothing, it turns out.
