Apple's next iPod to have EDGE wireless internet?

Posted on Sunday, January 22 2006 @ 9:05 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
A couple of hours ago I reported about a story from Times Online that Apple is working on a new iPod with wireless Internet support and it looks like it will be EDGE.
According to the reader, Apple hasn’t been interested in mechanical engineers like him, but they have been snapping up RF engineers “like there is no tomorrow”. Here’s where it gets good – they are specifically looking for people with EDGE experience.

Apple, of course, won’t officially say anything, but the reader and his engineer buddies have chatted with Apple engineers. His sense is that they are shooting for an EDGE enabled iPod (though not necessarily a phone) sometime this fall. He’ll speculate on the timeframe, but has no guess on the eventual carrier.
