I think its as expected, but nothing to go on yet. Curious as to the specs, but I am betting a camera and possible a usb port.

I would love to see a camera on it and a USB port as well, but I would also like to see the price go down but I don't think that will happen. :)

I'm relatively new to Apple but their process seems to be that new product keeps the same price point and "legacy" generation drops in price. It does seem that the base config of the new generation usually has better specs than the base config of the old gen for the same price:

Today's 16 GB wifi only at $499 becomes next gen's 32 GB wifi only at $499 and the today's 16 GB might then go for $299 until stock is gone. At least that's how they've done iPhones over the past couple years that I've watched.

What really stinks is if you buy a 16 GB at $499 today and tomorrow the new version comes out with new features, double the memory and the same price. They will probably let you swap, minus a lovely restocking fee. Part of the Apple mystique is that you never really know when a product is going to come out (even their resale shops con't know), you just have to learn the hard way to never buy Apple products on a Monday without scouring their rumor forums online to see if something *might* be coming out. For some reason, Tuesday is their magical new product release day, and there are forums dedicated to guessing which Tuesday the new stuff comes out.
