Next From Apple? Just Follow the Supply Chain of Evidence.
Looks like we may meet our quota of sketchy Apple product rumors early this month. Digitimes, the Taiwan site that regularly files early and occasionally reliable rumbles from the supply chain, today saved Apple the trouble of announcing a whole press event’s worth of new gear. Based on reports from manufacturing sources, senior analyst Mingchi Kuo said we can look forward to: an upgraded 9.7 inch iPad with a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM; a new 7-inch iPad featuring a Cortex-A9 processor; an Apple TV powered by an AMD Fusion chip and rigged with an iOS-like interface and social networking support; and, yes, that stalwart of the rumor mill, a CDMA iPhone compatible with Verizon’s network, appearing in January.
