Apple set to unveil iTunes kiosks?

These sorts of rumors are inevitable in the days leading up to a big Apple event, so take them with a grain of salt. Rumblings in the cyber jungle point to Apple unveiling some iTunes kiosks in major retail centers. These new kiosks will sport iPod and iPhone docks that will allow you to execute any number of iTunes-related tasks. Among which include software/firmware updates, music, movie, and TV Show downloads and purchases, and gift card purchases. The kiosks will allow 1 full minute of content sampling, as opposed to the current 30 second limit in the consumer version of iTunes. Sounds pretty dope, right? The real kicker here, however, is that these kiosks are rumored to include to form of touchscreen interface. As this will be an Apple sourced product, will these stations mark the arrival of some sort of Apple tablet technology? Stranger things have happened, we suppose. There are, of course, a number of logistic-related questions here, including potential syncing issues and the question whether you would be able to re-download the content onto your home machine without paying for it again. All will be answered, or proven wrong, in three short days.
