Apple is notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to revealing details about its future products. So thank goodness there are plenty of industry analysts happy to feed us bloggers with their predictions. The latest to give his views on what Apple’ll do next is Gene Munster from Piper Jaffray.
“We are expecting Apple to introduce cheaper, innovative iPods with Wi-Fi and multi-touch technology,” he wrote in a research note this week, suggesting that this expansion of the iPod Touch line could lead to some intriguing new services.
“If for example you are on your way to Starbucks, you could wirelessly order your drink from your iPod, pay for it using your iTunes account or the attached credit card, and pick it up without ever standing in line or waiting at a cash register,” he wrote. Streaming music from your home PC or Mac to your iPod could also be a possibility.
