Apple could be getting ready to build the ultimate video/gaming/cell phone/camera/music device or they could be looking to add video to the next generation of iPods. I guess we just wait and see.
Here's hoping it's the ultimate Apple handheld, possibly looking like this:

I'd love to get a Sony P2P, that thing is wicked. But if I could get the same thing built by Apple with their impeccable sense of style and usability, I'd wait for the ultimate Apple handheld.
Oh, and by the way, Apple OS X 10.4 Tiger officially hits the stores on Friday, April 29th. It looks smokin' hot.
