ArsTechnica and AppleInsider are reporting that Apple is preparing a major event for the 5th of September. We couldn't get anyone in Cupertino to say anything either way, but both sites credit sources within the company as saying that the event will take place and could include several new iPod models.
The timing seems about right. It 's coming up on one year since Apple's "Showtime" event in San Francisco yielded a new line of iPods. The speculation is that at least one of the new models will include an iPhone-esque touchscreen interface and a MacOS X software base.
