A report is claiming Apple may introduce some slight upgrades to its range of available iPod products, perhaps as soon as today.

AppleInsider claims "sources" have informed it of the move, which will consist of incremental upgrades such as a new colour iPod — potentially a Product Red iPod shuffle.

The report also suggests a new 2GB Product Red iPod nano may be announced.

The report offers no definitive information to confirm its claims.

The site also claims that Apple may ship its iPhone sooner than the June launch point the company currently has scheduled in the US.
