RUMOR: Apple to launch Mac App Store as soon as Dec. 13th

Complete your iPad experience with ZAGGmate!“An inside source has just told us that Apple is targeting a Monday, December 13th launch of the Mac App Store,” Kirk Hiner reports for Appletell.

“The company apparently told developers to have their software prepared for a launch as early as Monday the 6th of this month, but our contact would be shocked if that happened at this point,” Hiner reports. “Apple has made no official announcements regarding this, and delays could always happen, but there’s a push to be launched before Christmas, well ahead of the previously estimated January release.”

Hiner reports, “Our source indicated that Steve Jobs wants an early release, and wanted to go even sooner than the 6th.”

  1. I can see the people that sold “VersionTracker” to CNet laughing their a$$es off right now. CNet promptly made it almost worthless as a site, and now the Apple App Store will make it financially worthless. It couldn’t happen to a better bunch of M$ fanboys!

  2. well, Apple think that it will fly like itunes? NO. I bet that it will be failed. or very plain profit like apple TV. now they have slowly been out of idea. app store for desktop use? it’s not even new idea. there are many sites offer to sell applications including free version. plus, it’s only for freaking mac. no interest. I assume that price tag is expensive as well. die apple. die.

    I would love to see it launch early.
    I believe Edward’s comments are the same comments that were said about iTunes and the app store when they were launched.

    People need to realize, winblows is a failure. And I bet ms will now announce a winblows version of the Mac app store, and people like Edward will say it’s the best thing ever invented.
