Analyst sees terabyte iPod in Apple’s future

Apple could possibly create an iPod with 1 terabyte of storage, as well as a true “iPhone” says one analyst. “A terabyte iPod might sound crazy today, but we believe in five years a terabyte iPod will emerge as a portable home media center,” says Piper Jaffray senior analyst Gene Munster in an research report obtained by iLounge. “We continue to believe that Apple will enter the mobile phone market. We would not expect an ‘iPhone’ to be launched for at least 12-18 months.”

The report also discusses possible future plans for iTunes and the Mac mini. “The key to iTunes in the next 12-24 months will be gaining access to more video content… Apple will work with networks, film studios, and other content providers to coerce them into offering more content via iTunes,” continues Munster. “Expect Mac to become a hub for consumer digital media as Front Row technology gets incorporated into the Mac Mini.” The report also mentions a possible AirPort Express for video to stream video from iTunes to TV.

This means that I can put all of my music on the iPod as WAV. If someone ever gets a hack to allow the iPod to play WAV files.

1 terabyte of memory is huge!! I thinks that’s almost the capacity of a super computer! 80GB is a ton of memory, but who the #### likes 500,000 songs?? If I hade that much memory, ity would be used on moviesa I have downloaded on my iPod.

Hello! It’s 2009 and the Iphone has been out for 1 year. It’s just the same as the Ipod touch, just with 3G and a phone.
