RBC expects new MacBooks in late Q2, next-gen iPhone in Sept., Oct.





rbc-120529

RBC’s analyst Amit Daryanani issued predictions that Apple would revamp its MacBook portables later this quarter and release a new iPhone in September or October, echoing expectations for Apple's near-term plans.

The iPhone is the company's "flagship product". 43 percent of Apple's revenue in fiscal 2011 came to iPhone. Apple's apparent two-year design cycle could cause "increased seasonality" as consumers catch on to it and hold off on purchases. That explains  just 21 percent growth in iPhone shipments year over year in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to 91 percent growth in Q4 2010.

Facebook reportedly hiring former Apple iPhone engineers for phone project



facebook

The New York Times claims that Facebook is drawing upon former Apple engineers and has hired "more than half a dozen former Apple software and hardware engineers who worked on the iPhone" to develop its own phone. The New York Times’ report also said that Facebook is interested in buying a smartphone company. It raised $16 billion during its recent IPO, enough to purchase either Research in Motion or HTC.

One tipster suggested that the current effort is the company's third attempt to build a smartphone. People who reportedly worked on the first attempt told the Times that the project fell apart because it proved to be more difficult than expected. As a result, Facebook is believed to have realized that it needs industry-experienced veterans to develop hardware, specifically Apple alumni.

Apple Researching Stylus Concepts with Optical Tracking and Haptic Feedback



apple_optical_stylus_patent

Back in 2007, then the first-generation iPhone was launched, Steve Jobs offered an idea of a stylus for the iPhone. And it seems that Apple is still researching his ideas for stylus-based input. Unwired View has recently posted Apple patent applications filed in late 2010, highlighting optical and haptic stylus concepts. However, there is no evidence that Apple is seriously looking at incorporating a stylus into its products, but it remains clear that the company is thinking about how such pen-based input could be used in novel ways.

Apple's optical stylus is based on a tiny camera on the tip of the pen, allowing it to track patterns on a device's screen that is invisible to the user's eye.
