Apple is scheduled to hold a special media event tomorrow on the eve of PhotoPlus Expo.
“This being the PhotoPlus Expo, one would think along the lines of photography or a Pro announcement when contemplating Apple’s next move. While I do believe that Apple will be bumping the Power Mac and portable lines, I also think there will be a new product announcement. While esteemed colleagues around the Mac web are leaning towards software, my mind is thinking more along the lines of hardware; I predict that Apple is going to come out with a digital still camera. Not just any digital still camera mind you, but one that is completely integrated with the recent products to come out of Cupertino,” michaelangelo writes for AppleXnet.
“What would the specs on this camera be? No clue, to be honest. If Apple was to do it, it is doubtful they would go low-brow. It should be at least 5 megapixels, have 64MB of built-in storage, and the iPod nano rechargeable battery. An 8x optical zoom with a 12x digital zoom would round it out nicely,” michaelangelo writes. “While there is no way to tell if Apple really is coming out with this product until tomorrow, I would not be completely surprised to see it. Every product lately has been an extension of the digital lifestyle on which Apple has a stranglehold, and this product would be a logical extension of that. If asked for the odds of this happening I would say that they are decent. Keep an eye out for it, because if it doesn’t happen tomorrow, it may happen soon.”
