Analyst suggests GPS, Wi-Fi may be in iPod’s near future

Prudential Securities research analyst Jesse Tortora believes the next iPod could “include a wider touch-screen, Wi-Fi and GPS.” He made these comments Monday in relation to a research note he released to clients and reported on by the International Business Times. Tortora speculates this overhauled iPod—especially as relates to the built-in GPS—will “position the iPod as the central hub for all digital content (music, movies, GPS) in automobiles.” Apple may also look to veer away from hard drive-based iPods, the research analyst speculated, by instead choosing “NAND flash as soon as late ‘07.”
