my Wednesday Apple prediction

  • The Apple iReader will be released.  Two versions a) an AT&T 3g and Wifi b) Wifi only.  Yes folks I think Apple is sticking with AT&T.  I don’t believe Apple wants to move away from the GSM, SIM based, world standard.
  • Core I5 processors in the 15″ MBPs and the Core I7 in the 17″(I will buy that one)

Some of you are asking yourselves why do I think Apple will stay with AT&T.  It’s very simple.  Almost everyone hates their mobile carrier.  Whether it’s Verizon, Spring, T-Mobile, AT&T, etc, we all hate them for some reason.  I also think this because Apple does not want to move away from SIM card based mobile devices.  Building a CDMA and GSM device is a waste of resources in Apple’s mind If you want our devices change carriers.

I’m ready to go out on a limb here, but I think in the near future Apple will buy AT&T’s wireless division.  I think Apple is very interested in keeping pace with Google.  A few years ago when the 700mghz network became available, and Google was bidding, I think Apple was very intrigued by this.  Asking themselves why would Google want that.  This got Apple thinking about mobile communications on a different level, not just hardware.

Apple is very tatical.  They start by releasing devices that cause AT&T to spend money and build their network.

Remember this is from someone who thinks Google will buy Verizon too. :)

8-2008 psychic moment is coming true

According to Gizmodo today

According to me over a year ago

Finally one of my Apple product psychic moments is coming true.  Now if they’ll release a MacMini with Blu-Ray, I’ll be batting a thousand.  Oh wait…I also think they will soon turn the MacMini into a gaming console to run downloaded, full sized games from the app store.

The device I spoke of a 2 months ago

A few months ago I was at the Denver Handheld User Group meeting.  We were discussing NetBooks.  The topic moved around the table.  When it got to me I explained that I wanted a device about the size of 3-4 iPhone screens.  Here it is friends, but smaller.

Plica consists of two touchscreens and it looks exactly like a regular cellphone. When the phone is folded in two screens, you will use one as a keyboard and on the other you will be able to see whatever you want to. Also, you can view the images on both screens which means twice the resolution. Plica is very functional kind of like a mini-laptop and it features USB and headphone jacks.
