T3 claims Apple is planning 8GB and 10GB iPod nanons in the summer.
At least that’s what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster is saying.

Apple itself has hinted that iPod prices are due for a spot of pruning. “We expect [the average iPod selling price] to be down a little bit in the June quarter,” said CFO Peter Oppenheimer recently.
