- A sub 7" iPad/iPod.
- A 12" iPad.
- Other iOS devices, including a replacement for the iPod Touch.
- A midrange desktop, dare I say XMac.
- A new Apple TV with the ability to run apps.
- New routers.
- The very much desired 15" AIR
- A new compact server, media PC.
Just a quick list to get the discussion started.
I think the obvious move for Apple is to find a rational way to expand the iOS devices line up. That means in this context new tablets with a likely emphasis on an iPad with an approximate 12" screen. IPad is really rocking the tablet market and I see Apple leveraging their lead to cover people with different needs.
Along the same lines I'm expecting the iPhone 4S form factor to stay around for a bit. The line up will be supplemented with a 4G capable device in a different form factor.
The other obvious thing here is that the desktop line up needs help. To that end I expect them to drop both the current Mini and the Pro to introduce a more common platform to cover a wider array of needs. It is good that the laptops are pulling the majority of sales but they needs a viable platform to capture and keep the desktop market. Thus the XMAC.
I also have to wonder about what Apple will do outside its current markets. Very little was said about an Apple TV. I'm actually thinking that Apple might go after a different segment for example robotics. Robotics is a very long term play but there is huge upside potential.
