Apple Says ‘No More New Products Until Next Year!’

apple-2009-no-more
Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing  has said that Apple will not introduce any more products this year, according to Gizmodo.

Well, thank the geek gods. I don’t think I can handle anymore new Apple product announcements for the mean time. And I don’t mean that in a bad way. At least you can be assured that if you buy an Apple product now, you have around 2 months or so to bask in it’s glory before new models come out and yours become fairly obsolete.

Last year, the new Mac Book Pros were released around early January. If there’s any truth in the rumors about new MacBook Pro models (identified as 6,1 and 6,2) coming out, then we might be seeing announcement of these so-called MacBook Pros by January 2010.

As for the rumors about a Apple Tablet, you might as well stop holding your breath for the mean time since I don’t think that this product will materialize any time soon.

  1. “bask in it’s glory” should be:
    “bask in its glory”.

    Apple does not like to come out with new product in December and rarely does in November. They had one speed bum in November 2007, but you have to go back to 2003 for a new product design release. They never have product releases within 2 weeks on either side of Black Friday.

    They make much more money towards the end of a product cycle, than at the beginning as component and especially CPU prices drop.

    Intel’s next big chip release is in January, but there may be some mobile chips released in December.

    This announcement does not specifically deny the possibility of speed bumps, and these would be a good idea in the MB Pro’s and MacPro’s as the MB and BTO iMac’s are too close to the entry levels of their siblings. The BTO iMac is faster and has more ram than the entry level Pro, and the MB has the same speed and ram as the MBP, and has a bigger drive.

    My feeling is that these machines will receive at least a speed bump within the next 2 weeks. As stated above, the problem is that the currently wide market released next-gen chips run too hot for the MBP’s, hence the January release, but I would expect some down clocked, lower TDP Apple-only chips for the laptops. This is a similar situation to the bump in the MB in May leading to the bump in the MBP a few weeks later. This could bump the next rev’s until February, further increasing Apple’s bottom line.

  3. i would really love to see some 4850′s and an i7 in the macbook pro, however im not sure how on earth they would keep that 7 hour battery life.

  4. i love apple, i bought one 4 weeks ago, a macbook pro, and i wonder…how the hell did i stay with windows and PC’S for 10 years damn it….THANK YOU APPLE FOR EXISTING
