“Based upon our recent checks, we expect Apple to unveil two models of its widely anticipated cell phones in early [Calendar Year] ’07,” said Jesse Tortora, research analyst at Prudential Equities.
“We have learned that one model will be a smart phone, including integrated keyboard, video and music capability, while the other model will be a slimmer phone with music capability. At least one of the models will include WiFi.”
It would be just like Apple to move the state of this art ahead while the phone companies waste a good opportunity yet again.
