New Apple HDTV coming within a year, rumored to be full-fledged TV set

New Apple HDTV coming within a year, rumored to be full-fledged TV set

Quite a few Apple HDTV rumors have broken onto the scene today, this time once again arising from renowned Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, who took the stage at the IGNITION: Future of Media conference this morning. In fact, according to his predictions, Munster is so certain an Apple TV will be launching in the next year, that he essentially told anyone in the audience who was thinking of purchasing a new TV to standby and wait, because Apple's new TV is going to be, well, in the most Apple-esque sense as possible, amazing. Well, we hope so too.

Watch out iPad: Even indirect Fire can cook Apples

Watch out iPad: Even indirect Fire can cook Apples

Analysts and pundits are queuing up to point out the Kindle Fire's shortcomings, and how Amazon's entrant to the tablet market is "not a true iPad competitor." Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster went so far as to estimate Amazon was swallowing fifty bucks loss on each Kindle Fire sold, crossing its fingers that multimedia sales would make up for it, and highlighted the slate's lacking storage, absent cameras and non-existent 3G option. The idea, it seems, is that because Amazon hasn't photocopied Apple's strategy - or, indeed, followed Android tablet manufacturers in trying to compete on specifications alone - and since the Kindle Fire's price is thus less than half that of the iPad, they "target different segments" and the iPad is in the clear. That seems pretty short-sighted.

Should Google Go Apple Mobile Style with Moto, Microsoft Takes the Spoils

Should Google Go Apple Mobile Style with Moto, Microsoft Takes the Spoils

In a lovely letter sent out to his clients this Friday, Piper Jaffray resident Apple analyst Gene Munster covered a hypothetical situation in which once Google's Motorola deal goes through, it closes off Android from all other manufacturers and takes the Apple route by being creator of both hardware and software at once, this happening inside 2012. His analysis is thus: Apple keeps the same share regardless of the hypothetical situation, but Android falls from a 43% global market share to 15% while the "Other" category, mostly comprised of Windows Phone 7, takes the spoils, jumping from 14.4% to 44.5%.
