Apple Confirms New Products on The Way

Shortly after reporting a 47% rise in fiscal fourth quarter earnings, Apple's Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer spilled the beans on the company's plans for the near future, which - as many suspected - will include new products.
As covered by Apple Insider, Oppenheimer "explained to analysts that the company is projecting lower growth in future revenues and profit margins due to cheap new products in the company's pipeline."
In response to questions from Richard Gardner of CitiGroup asking "why gross margin should be down as much as you have it" in the company's future guidance, Oppenheimer answered, "we expect gross margin to decline about 34%."
Economic considerations aside, Apple fans are taking away from Oppenheimer's comments that an exciting host of new, somewhat lower-cost products could roll out of Apple's warehouses potentially as soon as this holiday season.
Naturally, some are deducing from Oppenheimer's remarks that Apple will soon unveil a new tablet computer, building on the hype generated from a host of media outlets that have hinted for months at Apple releasing a new tablet early in 2010. Tablet aside, there is no shortage of other potential new or upgraded products offerings the company could introduce at any time now.
Apple's latest MacBook introductions this summer scaled down prices dramatically while still delivering high end engineering features, and the company is expected to release significantly cheaper desktop Macs this fall in time for the holiday shopping season.

I'd like this phantom table to die in a fire. That is all.

It is what it is. Choice. Apple has been in the top user experience and customer satisfaction and quality lists for over a decade (check PC Mag), the products are for the most part high quality. No, they are not cheap. Look forward to the tablet, held off buying a new laptop for this one. Just hope it's more than an over-sized iPhone.

A tablet would be really cool to see, although I'll stick to my MBP.Apples taste good.

I dreamt last night of a new Apple tablet that was just the screen half of the Macbook Air and it was called the Apple Gravity Tablet. The dream was so vivid I went straight to the Apple online Store when I woke up...

EDIT: BTW, that reminds me. I seem to recall reading somewhere that among the rumors of new Apple products coming down the pike, was a new Time Machine (2T, maybe?). I can't remember where I saw that. I'm holding out for that, I think.

Apple and I have an understanding…
They release something I want, and I pay $200 more than I thought I'd have to.

Pitty Apple does'nt complete what it already has before introducing new products. i.e Full bluetooth implementation for the iPhone
