Apples 2011 roadmap?

apple-logo1 Jeg ved godt at jeg igår skrev, at jeg ikke ville bruge så meget krudt på diverse tech ting, men jegfaldt lige over dette spekulative Apple roadmap, som Gene Munster har formuleret. Jeg overvejer meget kraftigt at skifte til Mac når mine hjemme PC engang dør, så derfor har jeg en lille interesse i at følge med i hvad der sker i Cupertino.

 

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has weighed in with his predictions on what Apple has in store for 2011:

  • Verizon launch of the iPhone: Probability 95% (Q1)
  • Mac App Store: Probability 100% (January 6)
  • iTunes cloud services: Probability 90%
  • iPad geographic expansion: Probability 100%
  • iPad subsidies from carriers: Probability 80%
  • OS X Lion/10.7: Probability 100% (Summer)

Here’s when Munster expects upgrades to the hardware:

  • iPhone (March quarter). We are modeling for Apple to launch a CDMA version of the iPhone at Verizon in the March 2011 quarter. The fifth generation iPhone will likely ship this summer with NFC capability.
  • iPad (Spring). We believe the second generation iPad will launch in Spring 2011.
  • Macs (uncertain). We have moderate confidence that Apple will release redesigned MacBook Pros in 1H11 and redesigned iMacs in 2H11.

iPods (Fall). As usual, Apple should refresh its iPods in the fall.

Umiddelbart synes jeg det meste interessante er Mac OSX Lion, men mon ikke en iPhone 5 også kunne få mig til at hive dankortet frem?
