Near the end of January, Toshiba came out with their ultra slim HD that was able to store nearly 55,000 songs but now, there are rumors circulating that the current model iPod Classic could be reaching its end of life. The reason behind this rumor is because global supplies of the Apple gadget have begun to dry out and the speculation is that a new iPod Classic may just be around the corner.
The iPod Classic has come a long way since its introduction back on October 23, 2001 when it arrived on the scene with the catch phrase “1,000 songs in your pocket”. Since the original model, there have been a total of six generations that have been released as well as a spin-off product called the iPod Photo which at a later point in time ultimately resulted in it becoming reintegrated back into the main iPod line. To this day, all generations of the iPod line have had a 46mm or 1.8-inch hard disk drive that the device has used for data storage.
