Reinventing the wheel

It’s been claimed that Apple are about to discontinue the revolutionary click wheel on their iPods.

The vintage means of scrolling through the mp3 player currently only exists on the iPod Classic and iPod Nano, but according to modmyi.com their days are numbered. They will instead be using the popular touch screen feature, found on sister player the iPod Touch.

At present this is just speculation, with no official word coming from Apple about discontinuation, but rumours have increased due to no new click wheel games released in the AppStore since February 2009. However, the recent launch of the Nano 5th Gen still integrates the click wheel function.

Let's hope the answer is just a click away? See what we did there?
