There are roumours running around that Apple Inc will be releasing some 400,000 units of 11.6 inch smaller, thinner Mac book Air; also to be released ipod Touch with 3- megapixel camera; both hitting the market in the last quarter of this year.
11.6-inch MacBook Air
Among the many rumours of Apple Inc company information, the new gossip in town is Apple Inc 2008 revolutionary product: the ultra-thin Macbook Air is now going even thinner. DigiTimes reported that Apple has plans to combine Intel’s new ultra-low voltage chips along with the 11.6 inch MacBook Air. The company had reportedly ordered screens and had placed orders to manufacture the device with Quanta Computer. Close to 400,000 units expected to be released towards the end of this year. Although there are no reports of replacing the slow moving 13.3 – inch Macbook Air, but the new ones will help market better and will be a strong contender for several computer manufacturers who surpassed MacBook Air in thinness; like Dell’s Adamo XPS and several much affordable 10 or 11 inch computers or netbooks. Rumours say that the new generation of MacBook Air is going to be much more thinner than the current ones in the market.
iPod Touch with 3-megapixel camera
To debut towards the end of August or September this year the new iPod touch featuring a 3-megapixel camera along with a front facing camera and with HD video shooting skills, will be using the same A4 processor as now being used in iPhone 4 and iPad’s. Samsung’s Hummingbird 1 GHz processor is what iPhone and iPad use as its A4 processor. iPod Touch will have YouTube uploading capability and is said to be packed with FaceTime, which will allow calls over Wi-Fi network. To boost the iPod Touch’s gaming capabilities, there will also be an accelerometer and gyroscope. Between seventeen to eighteen million new iPod Touch is expected to be sold by the end of this year, worldwide.
This year has been manifested by several Apple product leaks, while some say it is Apple inc marketing and PR gimmick to create interest and hype; while others say Apple Inc who are known to be quite strict about product related news, is being lousy and outsourced vendors are not imposing strict rules, thus product leaks are slipping out of the company’s grasp. There are several photos and videos of the new iPod Touch and it is still not clear if the iPod Touch is featuring a 2 megapixel or 3 or actually even 5 megapixel camera.
Regardless, reviewers and Apple lovers are waiting fot the new products to be released. iPhone sales has overshadowed sales from Apple computers. While iPhone 4 product was considered the greatest leaks of all time for Apple products; public is secretly waiting for new 11.6-inch MacBook Air pictures to be out in the net and how much more thinner can the already surprisingly thin MacBook Air can get.
