Here's a cut-out-and-keep guide to all the current speculation as to what the company could reveal in the weeks ahead."</em></p><p>Jonny Evans over at Computerworld goes through a laundry list of possible announcements for Apple's annual fall event. &nbsp;I think the idea of an iPod Touch with an A4 chip and a camera is almost a certainty, especially if it will run the iMovie app. &nbsp;I'm not so sure about the rest of it. &nbsp;I would love to see a new AppleTV, but I think when it does come, it'll run iOS. &nbsp;I really don't see a market for a 7-inch iPad, and I don't think Apple does either. &nbsp;The iPad is exactly the right size for what it does, and the iPod touch is exactly right for what it does. &nbsp;Something in between seems pretty useless to me. &nbsp;As for the idea that Apple will accelerate an iPhone 5 release; I find that extremely unlikely. &nbsp;What do you think of these rumors?</p>

I agree that Apple isn't going to release a 7" iPad, but I'd actually be much more interested in the iPad if if were smaller. The 3.5" screen on my iPod Touch is just too small for many things; double it (or even 6"), and it becomes a really interesting device to me. The iPad is too big for what I want a device like that to be.

I'm hoping for Apple TV news!
