It came from Rumorville, so it must be true:
An article over at DigiTimes has cited that Apple has ordered a batch of touch-screens earmarked for future generation iPods from Taiwanese manufacturer Wintek.
The article quotes an anonymous source which claims that Apple is about to launch a next-generation iPod video next month. Such an iPod would sport a touch screen panel similar to the iPhone’s.
DigiTimes also pointed out that Apple seems to be lining up touch-screen component deals with other manufacturers and has a similar arrangement with Balda, another touch screen manufacturer.
Neither Apple or Wintek were able to provide comments regarding the speculation.
If you have comments or ideas about this, feel free to discuss them in the forums.
