There's definitely a good possibility, but you'll find the number of people who really *know* what Apple's going to do to be very small. Apple is infamous for being tight-lipped about their upcoming products.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

As the most recent models were introduced all the way back in ... September ... no I think it pretty unlikely. Try again this summer, perhaps.

Well, it's obviously after Jan 27th and no word on revisions to either the software or hardware of iPhone/iPod Touch. However, in reports that have commented on Apple's private "town hall meeting" with employees, Jobs is said to have claimed that "the next update" to both will be significant. Not sure if he was talking hardware, software or both there, but I think it's now safe to say that if there's going to be a big update coming soon, it will likely be around the time the iPad actually starts shipping, ergo 60-90 days from now.

An aside to Dexter: I don't want to turn this into an iPad thread -- we've got other threads for that -- but I would commend you (and everyone) to read a couple of articles about the iPad that may illuminate what Apple's "up to" with the device:
