Well, word is out that while the new Apple-Motorola iPhone is now set to come out, there will however not be any video-iPod.

The reason for this is that video files are much larger and more bandwidth-demanding than audio files. Therefore, it's not very feasible to be able to load large video files onto a video-iPod. Also, Apple has no supporting iTunes-like service in place for video content.

What I would really like to see come out is a portable walkman-style computer, with video-glasses. Certainly , a video-iPod would be a stepping stone to this, but perhaps it will have to wait until bandwidth challenges are met.
