iPhone met with Delays

Apple’s iPhone, one of the most hyped up, innovative, yet mysterious, future of telephony technology has been delayed.


The device, which Apple is keeping under wraps, is intended to capitalise on the company’s iPod range of music players by creating a multimedia phone that enables users to listen to Apple iTunes music.

Last week, Apple shares surged on an analyst report that Apple was planning a mobile phone launch with US operator Helio. The market was excited at the prospect of the coming launch of a new Apple product aimed at a target market identical to iPod’s existing market.

Pam Duffey, an analyst at US-based researcher Visiongain, last week said: “The odds are extremely good that Apple will launch an iPhone this spring. The iPhone will be as disruptive to the existing carrier market as iPod was to the mobile music industry.” But according to US-based website Think Secret, which has a good track record for making Apple pre-announcements, Apple’s mobile phone plans have been put on hold.

Quoting “two independent sources speaking on condition of anonymity”, Think Secret, which has in the past been sued by Apple for releasing what Apple sees as “trade secrets”, said Apple has recently encountered “significant technological hurdles” in developing the iPhone.

Apple chief executive Steve Jobs is believed to be keen to “repeat Apple’s success with its innovative iPod music player design by developing the iPhone from the ground up, rather than just redesigning or rebranding an existing mobile phone from another manufacturer.”

But, according to Think Secret, the company has run into problems making the various cell phone components work together. There are also believed to be problems with the chip Apple is using. Apple refused to comment. Or, they might be making the whole thing up for a little boom in market value.

Summary

Apple’s iPhone, one of the most hyped up, innovative, yet mysterious, future of telephony technology has been delayed.
