Analysts: Apple Video iPod ‘likely’ on February 28, ‘coud be tablet-sized or HDTV-based’

Bear Stearns analysts Andrew Neff, William Hand and Ted Chung weigh in on Apple’s special event scheduled for February 28th: “Video iPod likely — but could be tablet-size or HDTV-based. As speculation begins to build around what AAPL could announce on February 28, we think — focusing on the adjectives ‘fun’ and ‘new’ — the most likely products are either a tablet-size iPod or larger HDTV-based iPod… While more Intel-based products (new iBook or iMacs) or a phone are possible, neither strikes us as ‘fun’ or ‘new.’ Or it could be one more thing,” The Consumer Electronics Stock Blog reports.

  1. *iPod Boombox – Both Fun and new.

    *iBook update – If it is a total revamp then it could be made more fun and then could maybe be classified as new.

    *Media Hub paired with a wireless talbet for controlling the content – Very fun Very new.

    *Tablet style Video iPod – New but not much fun for all the people taht just bought a new iPod when it was updated a few months ago.

    *Some kind of software – Photobooth has been refered to by Stevo as just for fun so maybe something along its lines. Maybe a new iSight and a windows based version of iChat or partnership. Now that would be very fun.

    The fabled iPhone – Fun I guess new not really new as there are a few phones out already, but make it compatible with Skype and allow one to use it for video communtication through AOL, .Mac , and Skypes system and you have a very fun phone.

    Apple branded HDTV with built in Media center. Very Fun, Very New.

  2. Goin out on a limb here but remember in MacWorld when steve made his podcast? He made a joke saying hey the next ipod is gonna be giant and weigh 10lbs? Perhaps a little foreshadow.

  3. No question these are consumer based products with the greatest likelihood being
    full length movies for iTunes, a media hub with TIVO like capability (here comes the cube again!)…and possibly a touch screen ipod with a bigger screen. Anything else would be a genuine surprise.
