Now for the iPod

A question about the next version of the ipod: will it now be based on OSX, and even without the Cell phone/cingular features, have a browser to hook up over WiFi? Along with the nice big screen and neat multi-gestures, and widgets, and iphoto integration? I don't really need the cell part, but a basic ipod/wifi browser would get the price down to what - $350 - $400?

If they did this without phone features, that would put tens of millions of copies of Safari out there - what a huge increase in market share.

The software design was very impressive. Look at the videos at apple to get a good sense of it.
