Apple is preparing a Mac Tablet and a new iPhone, according to rumors repeated by TheStreet.com’s Gary Krakow and Scott Moritz.
Krakow says that “if anybody could make tablets work, it’s Apple… [Unlike all of the other PC makers], Apple might be able to make it work.”
As for the iPhone, Moritz says that “we’ve reported that [the 3G iPhone] will be out in the first quarter , I think we’ve confirmed that today again, ummm…”
MacDailyNews Note: CNBC’s Jim Goldman, who we consider to be, oh, about 1,000 times more credible than Scott Moritz, today reported that Apple would debut a 3G iPhone in June 2008, not “in the first quarter.”
Krakow explains that 3G “eats batteries” which is why the first iPhone used EDGE, but there is a new “3G phone on a chip” from Broadcom on the horizon that Apple might be very interested.
Krakow thinks Apple made the right decision to wait for 3G technology to catch up, rather than making a thicker, heavier iPhone. Krakow also says that if you want an iPhone now, then buy it now. If you can wait “months and months” then wait, but “always know that whatever you buy, there’ll be a new model three or four months down the line. So, if you want the iPhone or are thinking about giving it as Christmas or holiday gift, do it.”
