News & Reviews: Apple iPod
Last Updated: Oct 24, 2016
As of today (23 October in USA time-zone), the Apple iPod series has just turned 15 years old. It has sure come a long way since its debut in 2001 when Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPod model, and although it has faded away slowly due to the popularity of smartphones, we take a quick look back on its journey from 2001 until today.

While Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch is expected to be revealed in early September 2013, an analyst from the CIMB Group has said that the Apple iWatch may come in late 2014 and not early 2014 as many have thought. According to this analyst the iWatch will be priced from $149 (RM494) to $229 (RM760) and positioned to replace Apple's iPod range of media players. Since this is a financial analyst, the predictions go on to estimate that the iWatch will ship up to 63.4 million units in 2014 alone and will generate up to 19% worth of profits for Invetec, the company said to be manufacturing the Apple iWatch. As it is just a prediction and a really far ahead one at that, we caution you to take this rumour with one big pinch of salt. Unfortunately, there weren't any tech specs, features or exact Malaysia release dates but stay tuned as we'll keep you updated about the latest iWatch developments.

We've all seen quite a number of Apple iPhone Lite shots and images. However, they could very well be clever renders by some 3D renderer with too much time on their hands.

The video also shows the plastic backplate being compared with other Apple products and it shows a remarkable similarity with the Apple iPod. Rather than the Apple iPhone Lite could it instead be the Apple iPod Lite? Check out the video for yourself:
