(Newser) – Rumors are flying about a makeover for the iPod family in the coming weeks, with the biggest changes in store for the Nano, Ian Paul writes in PC World. The baby of the clan may soon have a much larger and tapered widescreen, according to Apple-watcher Kevin Rose, who also says iTunes 8.0 is on the way, and that Apple's OSX will get Blu-ray support.

"As with any Apple rumors, they're often tantalizing, often imaginative and often wrong," Paul writes. But the rumors “about product launches tend to be accurate about timing.” Though the chances of the new Nano having GPS—another rumor floating around—are slim, Chinese case makers are confirming that the new iPod shells match the wider-screen prediction.
