Analyst: Apple readying two iPhone models

Apple plans to introduce two cell phone models which the company could launch at Macworld Expo in January, according to a report by Prudential Equity Group analyst Jesse Tortora. The analyst said “recent checks” indicate that Apple will begin selling a slim, iPod-based phone and a more advanced smartphone model with added features. Tortora said at least one of the phones will include wireless connectivity, but that both will be manufactured first in small numbers. Tortora is the second analyst that recently said that Apple is readying a cell phone. In releated news, Apple has reportedly filed for a trademark on the term “iPhone.” The filing, made last month with a Far Eastern trademark office, describes the iPhone as “handheld and mobile digital electronic devices for the sending and receiving of telephone calls, faxes, electronic mail, and other digital data; MP3 and other digital format audio players.”
