Are you getting sick of your old iPod? Are you feeling a little envious of the iPhone? Various sourcesare reporting that a new redesigned iPod and iPod Nano will be released at the Apple Expo on September 25th-29th in Paris, France. Although Apple has not used the the Apple Expo to launch new products, September corresponds usually as the time that Apple's iPod line refreshes to correspond with their Back to School promotion, and an iPod is long overdue for an update (it was last refreshed on September 2006).

Rumors are circulating that the new iPod will follow a similar iPhone design and will be called "iPod Touch." Featuring a 480x320 pixel screen, the new "iPod Touch" will sport a touch screen interface (like the iPhone), and and will run on an OS X based platform (like the iPhone).

Apple is very secretive about their product releases, and will not confirm or deny any of these rumors. So if you're in the market for a new iPod, LAist recommends that you should wait until the end of September before making an iPod purchase.
