According to Seeking Alpha, Canaccord Adams analyst Peter Misek thinks there is going to be a pretty big shakeup in the iPhone line this year.
Three new iPhones could be coming in 2009. The first is a 32G iPhone in multiple colours that is likely to arrive during the next six months. Next up is a lower-cost handset based on the 2.5G iPhone, which is targeted for China and India. Third is a smaller version – about one-third the size of the 3G iPhone – that costs 40% less and is also likely before year-end.
He quotes carriers who believe the smaller iPhone could have a $99 price point. But he doesn’t believe there will be a voice only version. We’re not sure where he came up with the colors idea even though the 32GB size is a gimme.
Do we buy it? Nope. Will Apple ever use these colors?->
We’re sticking to the new ARM processor, expanded features, new 3.0 software, better form factor route. How bout you?
