After years of cranking out hit iPod models, has Apple Computer hit a wall? News.com reports

Apple "hasn't had a significant update to its [iPod] product line this year, with the only change being the addition of a smaller-capacity 1GB iPod Nano in February. 'It's possible that we're at a point where the path to taking the next step is less clear and less straightforward, even for a company with the technology expertise and creativity of Apple,' said IDC analyst Susan Kevorkian," Ina Fried reports for CNET News.

Words that will likely ignite speculations and critics.

Fried reports, "But few expect Apple is resting on its laurels. 'I'm convinced they aren't just sitting there,' said Gartner analyst Michael McGuire. Apple declined to comment on where it is headed, as is its custom. Such silence, McGuire said, makes it hard to know where Apple is headed."

Digital HD Radio and cell phone capabilities are a couple of features bandied about for next-gen iPods in the full article.

"In any case, Kevorkian said that Apple may have missed an opportunity to follow up on its successes of last year, which included the Nano and video iPod. 'Apple had so much momentum coming out of 2005,' she said. 'That was momentum they could have banked on by introducing new products in the first half of 2006.' (It should be noted, of course, that Apple could conceivably introduce a new model before the holiday shopping season,)" Fried reports.
