Apple is now a consumer electronics company – it was predicted here first

The blogosphere is reverberating from Apple’s Richter 8.0 scale launch of the iPhone featuring OS X. The smallest Windows PC is still too big to come even close to the iPhone. OQO ULPC, Sony ULPC, Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and the myriad Windows Smartphones – watch out.  Interestingly Apple Computer became Apple Inc. signifying its metamorphosis into a consumer electronics company.  Sibu alerted me to the fact that he had predicted that Apple will become a consumer electronics company. Well done Sibu! I hate to be pointing this out to dear Stevie, but arch rival Dell Computer became Dell Corp long ago – er, something like 3.5 years ago.

    That was on offering for some time considering the revenue breakup of Apple. It’s time to see how they break into the PDA market cause the iPhone has features which are comparable with Smart phones. Though the above $550 price tag is also interesting one. Though the shipment dates starts from June 07 in USA and will be late as 2008 in Asia. I’d like you to go through a site that was buzzing since last couple of months, shelling out concept designs by amateurs. Worth taking a look

    Wish we get more futuristic information from your side. Happy Blogging.

    Thanks Anonmyous. Dash looks like a cool phone. Thanks for the pointer. But tell me, who would have thought that Windows Mobile would one day compete against OS X? Can Windows Mobile crush OS X like it did with Palm OS? This is going to be one interesting battle to watch. Also the contrarian decision to use a touch based UI instead of QWERTY is another move worth watching.
