Thats because the classic is still 6th gen but we are in iteration 2 of it. We just call it 7g and has widely accepted i as such. Its like what we call the ipod 5.5. It is actually just ipod 5g iteration 1.
Try this one.
Wikipedia clearly needs to update their iPod entry
They dont even list a 7th Gen Classic:
Mac Rumours tells me 'Dont buy - updates soon' and lists the last release as Sep, 2009, 2 years after the 'Sixth Gen' listed in the Wikipedia article. If I look at the developments among other iPod models over the last 5 years, its pretty clear that Apple havent invested too much into upgrades for the Classic - its all about getting kids onto the Shuffle/Nano as gateway drugs to the Touch or, better yet, an iPhone.
