Personally, I don't think a video ipod will set the world on fire the way ipod nano does. Just as Steve Jobs said last year, video is not ready for primetime then, and I doubt it is now. Music video on portable devices is more a novelty than anything else, movies probably will require lengthy download or conversion, that it would take much fun away from viewing it. Besides, most special effects will be muted on small screens, so less fun.

I agree totally.

Also, listening to music is something you can do "in the background". Watching video (or reading text) requires you to stop and pay attention, not something you can do while driving your car or working out at the gym.

I'd rather see an iPod with built-in WiFi for listening to internet radio.
