Apple plans to introduce a low-cost iPod nano later this year, and has raised its iPod and iPhone orders in anticipation of strong summer sales, an analyst warns.

FBR analyst Craig Berger reports Apple to have ordered production of over 15 million iPhone 3G’s and 2 million more old model iPhones this year – well above the quantity the company’s been counting on selling this year.

He also reveals Apple to have ordered about 15 per cent more iPods to be produced in the third quarter, and believes Apple is also preparing to introduce iPod classic and iPod touch upgrades. The most likely launch point for these is probably September.

The analyst also claims Apple has increased its Mac orders: Laptops up 10 per cent from his last check and desktops up 20 per cent. This may reflect the imminent release of new Intel processors designed to drive Mac upgrades as the critical US education buying season approaches.

News – Last week was Macworld and all the rumors about new Mac products came true: The MacBook Air, iTunes movie rentals (with HD), new Apple TV,iPhone/iPodtouch upgrades, and Time Capsule.

For you iPhone users, the new upgrades are cool. You can customize your screen menu layout, make web shortcuts, even Google Maps has a generic GPS feature. Plus, you can now text message multiple people at once…what more could you want? Oh yeah, a simple cut & paste function would be nice!

 

If you would love to see the keynote address by Steve Jobs but don’t have 90 min. to watch the full version, check out Mahalo.com’s 60 sec. recap!

 

Breaking News – Apple has just released a new color in their iPod nano line – PINK. The 8GB nano sells for $199, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Rumor – Microsoft is releasing the successor to the infamous Vista OS during the second half of 2009. I have to wonder, since most PC users haven’t even upgraded from Windows XP, what will this new release include?

Also, there is news floating around the internet that NBC shows MAY come back to iTunes… we’ll have to cross our fingers and see.

 

Gadget of the Week – Is that a Powerstick in your pocket? Why yes it is – a cool little USB-powered portable charger. It can re-charge your cell phone, iPod, Blackberry, iPhone etc. and comes with nine connectors for all your gadgets. Now the best part, it is only $69.95! Definitely for the on-the-go lifestyle!

 

Tip – Sure, it’s easy enough to put music on your iPod, but what about the opposite? Time for Senuti a program that does just that. It takes those precious Barry Manilow songs and puts them on your Mac’s hard drive, where they belong…. hidden! And of course…. wait for it…. It’s FREE!
