Apple Computer’s video iPod with a proper screen and a new design is projected to be released this spring, according to a report over a web-site. The new device will get rid of mechanical click wheel, but will maintain ease of use of the original iPod.
Think Secret web-site, which is dedicated to products by Apple Computer, reported that the new “true” video iPod will have 3.5” colour touch screen that will server for both video and navigation purposes. Currently it is unclear whether Apple plans to equip the new iPod video products with larger hard disk drives than today’s 40GB, but it is known that the new iPod video will connect to TV-sets using conventional cables used on current models.

Apple sold 14 million iPod players in the Q4 2005, of which, 3.9 million were the iPod players and 8 million were the iPod nano players, according to the web-site. This confirms that the large-capacity iPod players are still in demand.
