Analyst: iTunes movies, iPhone ‘almost certain’

Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster has put together a new report ranking the certainty of current Apple rumors. The analyst outlined potential products into three categories and expected release dates: almost certain (in the next 6-12 months), likely (in the next 9-18 months), and a stretch (in the next 12-18 months). Munster ranks the likelihood of both feature-length films on the iTunes Music Store and an Apple iPhone to be “almost certain.” Munster said he expects iTunes movies by the end of 2006, and an “iPod with cellphone capability” within the next 12 months. Under his “likely” rumors, Munster lists the “real” video iPod, which he expects as early as this holiday season. Finally, Munster calls speculation of both in-flight iTunes and advertisements in iTunes “a “stretch.”
