Apple seen as ‘nexus of digital lifestyle revolution’

Bear Stearns analyst Andrew Neff believes Apple is emerging as the “nexus of digital lifestyle revolution” and sees the iPod as a starting point for several new products. The analyst expects Apple to incorporate iPod technology into an HDTV device to offer a “big iPod” in the living room. Neff also expects “a new type of phone,” an iPod camera and advances in car audio connectivity.

“In a sense, Apple is becoming what Sony always wanted to be: a visionary that seamlessly integrates the best-of-breed hardware with content to fundamentally alter the way we life—and iPod is just the beginning, like Walkman before it,” Neff wrote in a research note this week.
