Is a new Apple music player -- or players -- on the way? The buzz around the company's cryptic invitations to a "Let's Rock" event is that it's about to unveil a new iPod, or possibly an upgrade of the entire product line.

September traditionally is the month for iPod rollouts, as Business Week notes in a blog post. The magazine predicts new versions of all iPods. Tech junkies have been speculating about a next-gen iPod Nano, Touch and Classic since summer, according to PC World.

Apple didn’t immediately respond for comment.
