Apple iPod to go wireless in 2006?

Posted on Thursday, December 15 2005 @ 16:15:04 CET by


Engadget writes PortalPlayer is making big moves into wireless. You may not know this company but about 90% of their Q3 2005 revenue came from producing chipsets for Apple's iPod. So this may mean Apple is planning to make the iPod wireless.
Just last month they named Vodafone and Ericsson veteran Tomas Isaksson to their Board of Directors and then last week they announced their licensing of Sun’s Java ME platform which moves Mobile Java content beyond devices such as cellphones and into next generation portable media players “expected to be released in the first half of 2006.”
According to analysts its plausible that Apple will launch an iPod with Bluetooth 2.0 technology so that users can go completely wireless:
So what does this all mean? Well, “wireless” and “iPod” could yield a Bluetooth 2.0 iPod finally axing the cable from the headphones, or a WiFi iPod which functions as a remote control and streaming data source to that new Mac mini with Front Row, or even the highly desired iPhone which seems almost a certainty in Apple’s expanding device portfolio.
