Default AAPL an ipod phone hmmmmmmm

aapl will NOT partner with Palm. Very bad call there on our part.

However, AAPL does have an event tomorrow as well.

Would be VERY surprised to see the two working together. Tomorrow should be A Movie Store for iTunes, and the possible introduction of a new iPod update. The big focus is on films, based on their invitations.

iPod phone... January.

Everyone has been all but banking on the fact that AAPL will have an ipod/phone for months now, so much of the premium has probably already been realized and if it is not what they think...AAPL could drop big.

anything less than an ipod phone or some palm type deal (good pick up chinaman) should deflate the share price imo. i smell too much speculation over there.

IT'S TIME TO take another byte at Apple Computer, as it prepares to raise the curtain on several new services and gadget upgrades this week in San Francisco. The public-relations hype and conjecture surrounding the introduction, at a downtown theater, drove shares up 6% on the week, to close at 72.52. Apple has shot up about 41% since we penned a positive cover story on the company roughly two months ago (see "Mac Attack," July 17).

The headline on the invitation to the event, "It's Showtime," is leading analysts and pundits alike to expect some new product announcements from Apple (AAPL: 72.94, +0.44, +0.6%) in the video and film-distribution arena as well as the mobile and home-viewing departments. (See our colleague Eric Savitz's blog on www.barrons.com for posts about what many are expecting.) Hardware analyst Jonathan Hoopes of ThinkEquity Partners is so enamored of Apple's wicked marketing machine that he suggests company management chose the event's date (Sept. 12) in the hope of upstaging rival Dell's critical analyst meeting, slated for hours later.

Goldman Sachs analyst David Bailey predicts that the event will center on long-awaited upgrades to the iPod line, and the launch of new movie-downloading services. Thus far, the only studio mentioned as an Apple partner is Walt Disney (gee, I wonder why?), but there must be others lined up. We hear a possible sticking point is that Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs is determined to offer an easy-to-use pricing strategy along the lines of the iTunes Music Store, but the film studios are insistent upon more complicated, multi-tiered pricing structures.

More important will be Apple's unveiling of newer, high-capacity iPods using flash memory, and possibly a refresh of the so-called video iPod, Bailey posits. It has been almost a year since Apple announced upgrades to the iPod line, devoting more recent attention instead to the core computer business and its transition to Intel processors. In fact, last week Apple introduced upgraded iMacs, including an entry-level model for under $1,000. The computer business is expected to rack up stellar back-to-school and holiday sales, and the iPod refresh should give the must-have portable music players a boost heading into Christmas.

Yet for all of the talk about downloadable movies, better iPods and cheaper iMacs, the most interesting product on the horizon is the one that isn't likely to get much -- or any -- stage time this week: the iPhone.
