Yep--we guessed it. There's now a phoneless iPhone, called the iPod Touch. The user interface is identical to that of the iPhone's multimedia player.

The new Nano, which is just as slender as its predecessor but shorter and squatter, has a two-inch display with 320x240 resolution for video. It also supports Cover Flow and video games (three are included--Vortex, sudoku, and a mystery game).

The newest version of the tiny, clip-on flash player offers the same 1GB capacity, the same $79 price tag, and probably the same unimpressive sound quality. But the new array of colors is nice: Apple added periwinkle, jade, and turquoise ... or what the company much more dully refers to as blue, green, and purple.

The iPod Classic, which will be available beginning this weekend, is a refinement of the 5G iPod design. It's lighter and thinner, and offers the same user interface as the new Nano.

At 8mm thin, the Touch is even thinner than the iPhone. The display uses the iPhone's multitouch interface and takes advantage of accelerometer technology that will trigger a landscape mode when turned on its side.

Apple has also added the iPod Shuffle to its line of RED products--that is, those that benefit AIDS research.

Cover Flow on the Nano shows albums against a white background, differentiating itself from the iPhone's Cover Flow. The Now Playing screen now shows cover artwork, artist, title, and rating information all in one view. Browsing music, videos, and photos now takes advantage of a split screen view that offers a visual preview of the selection on the right half of the screen.

The Nano is still part of the (Product)RED campaign. The player--red or otherwise--has a non-user replaceable battery rated for 24 hours of music playback and 5 hours for video.

Now, you can even purchase iTunes tracks via Wi-Fi--completely sans computer. Now we're talking. The iPod Touch will be available sometime this month in 8GB ($299) and 16GB ($399) capacities.

It has to be said that the least exciting of today's Apple announcements is the one regarding the new iPod Shuffle.

... but it is. The iPod Classic now comes with up to 160GB of memory, and yet that version is thinner than its 80GB, fifth-generation predecessor. This player comes in silver or black, and the 160GB version will set you back $349. There's also an 80GB for $249.
