“Apple banks on digital media harvest”

Joe Wilcox of CNET News.com forecasts the announcement of a new digital hub device during Steve Jobs’ keynote address at Macworld. Wilcox goes onto examine analysts’ predictions that the new device will be a tablet PC or iPod II.

“But some analysts don’t believe the new product will be a tablet, but a successor to Apple’s iPod music player. The new device would have video capabilities and possibly a touch screen and wireless capabilities. As such, the device would be similar to the portable video player unfurled by Intel last year. Sonicblue is currently marketing the Intel-designed device.

“I think any rumors about a tablet computer are a smokescreen for iPod II,” said Richard Doherty, president of research firm Envisioneering Group.”
