16GB Flash Video iPods
Apple is likely to produce a video-capable iPod using 16GB of flash memory, according to a research note from W. R. Hambrecht analyst Daniel Amir. While most experts studying the computer company in advance of MacWorld San Francisco are focusing primarily on the heavily anticipated iPhone, Amir believes that Apple will introduce a player that merges the video capabilities of full-size iPods with the smaller and skip-proof flash memory of the iPod nano. The media player should be released in the first quarter of 2007, according to the analyst, which places its launch in the same timeframe as the Apple phone. Pricing and other details were not mentioned in the note.
