Excitement Building Over New Apple Products

Excitement Building Over New Apple Products

by , 9:15 AM EST, December 28th, 2005

Interest is high in anticipation of new consumer electronic devices that will roll out though 2006, but the buzz isn't around Sony or Palm. This year, it's all about Apple. The Mac and iPod juggernaut has strong lead in the consumer electronics market, and that's not about to change, according to All Headline News.

Apple released success after success in 2005, starting with the iPod shuffle and Mac mini, leading on through to the iPod nano, video capable iPod, video downloads at the iTunes Music Store, and the Front Row iMac G5 with remote control.

Richard Doherty, The Envisioneering Group analyst, noted "In the consumer electronics world, there's always talk now about Apple, the way people used to talk about Sony."

Looking to 2006, rumors abound about iPods with wireless Internet connections and bigger screens, TiVo-like Mac mini home entertainment systems, wide-screen iBooks, and more.

Some new product announcements are likely to be made at January's Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Apple CEO Steve Jobs will take center stage on January 10 for the Expo's main keynote, where he may surprise us with a traditional "one more thing" announcement about something new.

Macworld Expo is one of the largest Apple, Mac, and iPod related expos in the world. It runs from January 9 through January 13, 2006, at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. More information about the expo and events is available at the Macworld Expo Web site.
