Forget the iPhone, is Apple now working on a netbook?
The new Apple iPhones out next month (or July) with all their whizz gadgetry (and according to both retailers and others, an FM radio?) are already old news. Whether they happen or not, it doesn't matter - for the fanboys out there, your eyes should be on a bigger prize.
The Silicon Alley Insider carries news that Apple are working on the fabled media pad, a mythical device that has been whispered about for the past several years. Apple has never displayed much public interest in creating such a device, but now that sales in netbooks are escalating, it'd make sense to take a chunk of the market at some point.
It's a respected analyst called Gene Munster making the claims; although the netbook marketing is growing, it's still in its infancy, so Munster speculates Apple will wait until next year before launching a device more powerful than the iPhone that won't endanger sales of the MacBook.
