A wireless widescreen iPod?

The rumours about a widescreen iPod have been circulating all year, and after a brief hiatus after the special event last month where we saw the iPod, iPod nano and iPod shuffle all updated, the rumours are back. This time Engadget is spreading the rumour that Apple is about to announce a wireless video iPod.

The rumour makes sense, and the timing with respect to the holiday season and the launch of Microsoft's Zune would be perfect. Especially if the iPod's wireless support isn't crippled in the same way Microsoft has done to the Zune, a move which has attracted a huge amount of criticism.

But that said, we've been talking about this for so long, does anyone really believe this stuff anymore?
