So, there is a limit on how many product rumours Apple can take – according to a report in Taiwan, the company has denied claims that it’ll soon launch a Wi-Fi-equipped iPod.

Tech website DigitTimes says that Apple’s Taiwanese division refuted claims that it is working on a wireless iPod and has begun dispatching staff around Asia to teach local sales teams how to sell it.

This may not sound like headline news, but Apple is renowned for its policy of never commenting on future products, and for forcing poor old tech journalists to change front covers at the last minute with surprise announcements.

The age-old Wi-Fi iPod rumours have resurfaced thanks to the emergence of Microsoft’s Zune, which will let you share tunes with other users wirelessly.

Back in April, though, a reliable UK retailer told Stuff that a Bluetooth iPod would definitely be launching this year, alongside a slew of accessories including wireless headphones.

Taking this into consideration with the comments from Taiwan, we’d say that an A2DP-blessed model, rather than a Wi-Fi Zune-a-like, is likely to be the white one’s next port of call.
